The Pesticide Stewardship Alliance (TPSA) releases 2008 End of Year report.

In 2007, TPSA submitted a five-year strategy to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a condition of TPSA’s membership in the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP). TPSA’s overarching five-year goal is to foster and facilitate communication among pesticide stakeholders regarding stewardship issues as they arise. The specific goals focus on information exchange; international pesticide stewardship; end of life cycle issues such as pesticide disposal, plastic pesticide container recycling and agricultural plastic recycling; labeling as a means of pesticide risk reduction; and pesticide distribution risk reduction. TPSA has submitted an End of Year report to EPA on the progress made during 2008 toward achieving these goals.
