Mommy Alert! Stop the Spray

Raising children in this day and age encourages many moms to become activists. And, in some cases parents are also inspired to get political.

Mommies in California are making it their mission to safeguard their tots from toxins with the Stop the Spray campaign.

People are banning together to protest the aerial spraying of Checkmate, a potentially harmful chemical that is being used to rid the area of the Light Brown Apple Moth.

While concerned mamas have joined in sending mass emails, one stepped up to the mic to spread the message. Singer Charity Kahn and her JAMband, recently recorded this song, There Ain't No Moths on Me to get word out about the issue.

If you're a fan of tot rock, take a listen.

I hear that it doesn't even kill the moths - doesn't sound toxic to me.

I'm glad they are standing up and speaking out. California is spraying toxic chemicals over the entire area (with taxpayer money). I know people who moved to a different state to avoid it.
