Lebanon Seaboard’s Commitment to Environmental Stewardship
On September 22, 2006, Lebanon Seaboard signed a memorandum of understanding which pledged our commitment to The Healthy Lawns and Clean Water Initiative: Reducing Nutrient Losses from Lawns Through a Public-Private Stewardship Partnership.
As a key member of the Lawn Care Product Manufacturing Industry, we join the Chesapeake Bay Program in pledging our support for developing a stewardship program to reduce nitrogen nutrient losses by recommending changes in product content form or application methods in lawn care.
The Chesapeake Executive Council is comprised of public and private sector representatives from:
Environmental stewardship is not a new initiative for Lebanon Seaboard. During my 20 year tenure, and that of the founder, Vernon Bishop, Lebanon Seaboard has invested heavily in research to incorporate advanced technologies into our fertilizers, grass seed and lawn care products. As a result, we offer the most advanced and environmentally friendly inorganic slow release nitrogen fertilizers on the market.
Our commitment to the environment will continue, through our support of the Chesapeake Bay Program as well as our interest in being good stewards of our earth. I encourage you to explore our online lawn care library, where homeowners will find information to help them in doing the right things for their lawn (reference our Responsible lawn care practices article). I also challenge you to learn how to read package labels to truly understand what is inside each bag of product. You will find we have an edge over most manufacturers, advanced technology that will outperform competing products and my personal commitment to introduce breakthrough products that will act in a way that respects nature while producing the best lawn possible.
Thank you for your continued support of our products.
