Santé et bien-être

La santé des humains est intimement liée à celle de la planète. Nous avons besoin d’eau douce, d’océans propres et d’espaces naturels où se concentre une grande variété d’animaux, d’insectes et de plantes. Promouvoir l’éducation et le divertissement dans nos espaces naturels a toujours fait partie de la philosophie de Sierra Club depuis sa fondation en 1892.

Great Lakes Protection

The Great Lakes hold 1/5th of the world’s fresh surface water and currently provide drinking water to over 42 million people. The Great Lakes Campaign works to address concerns related to the Great Lakes Basin, water conservation, and pollution prevention.

Pesticides

What are Pesticides?

Pesticides (herbicides, vermicides, fungicides, and rodenticides)  are poisons designed to kill insects, plants, fungi, moulds and rodents.  Pesticides contain “active” ingredients (the chemicals intended to kill), and so-called “inert” ingredients.  These are considered trade secrets, and although in many cases they can be even more toxic than “active” chemicals, most consumers are completely unaware they exist.  Even when used as directed, pesticides have many negative side effects on human health and the environment.
