No-mow May

by The 100 Companies

All across the country, a single, albeit growing, monoculture is pushing essential pollinators further and further toward the fringe.

Spanning 50 million acres (covering 85 million front lawns and more than 16,000 golf courses), turf grass is growing – and the effects are not so great.

Up for a 31-day challenge that saves you work? Join no-mow May and let your lawn, one of the most common (not to mention vital) ecosystems for pollinators, go. Mowing wreaks havoc on many pollinators’ natural habitat – depriving them of spots to feed, rest and nest.

Go on: the butterflies and bees will thank you.
