Environmental Stewardship

Monrovia means green (and not just the color)

We seek to lead the industry in the reduction of pesticides by using beneficial insects, natural microorganisms and organic mulches. We recycle more than 95% of our irrigation water and we monitor underground water to prevent harmful intrusions. And we promote conscientious water practices in home gardens through educational outreach and cooperative work with state agencies.

We are the proud recipient of the Environmental Protection Agency’s prestigious EPA Evergreen Award, which recognizes outstanding pollution prevention efforts. By establishing innovative, environmentally endurable practices – from recycling water and organic waste, to using beneficial insects to manage pests – we are able to grow plants more responsibly.
