About Us

Our Mission

Citizens for Pesticide Reform (CPR) is a local citizens’ group based in Boulder, Colorado. Our mission is to decrease the risks that pesticides pose to our community’s health and environment by working to reduce pesticide use in the city of Boulder and Boulder County.

Our Goals

  • To educate residents, landscape professionals, other businesses and organizations, and city and county officials about the threats that pesticides pose to human and environmental health.
  • To promote alternative practices and products that can prevent (and if necessary treat) both indoor and outdoor pest problems.
  • To back local legislation and regulatory changes that support our mission.
  • To encourage the implementation of the precautionary principle in local settings.
