(CSPI) is a nonprofit education and advocacy organization that focuses on improving the safety and nutritional quality of our food supply and on reducing the carnage caused by alcoholic beverages.
A nonprofit environmental coalition of over fifty organizations located in Southern California committed to the health and safety of children, teachers, staff and community members who reside near school sites. CSS is nationally and internationally recognized for creating the most stringent pesticide policy for schools. This Integrated Pest Management Policy (IPM) was the first in the USA to embrace the "precautionary principle," and Parents Right to Know. In addition, CSS sponsored AB 405 signed by Governor Schwarzengger which protects 6 million school children, teachers and school employees from experimental pesticides whose health effects are unknown.
