Pledge an Act of Green: Save the Guac

April 20, 2011

Earth Day is Friday, and the theme for this year is Pledge and Act of Green. Pledging to help Save the Guac has its perks, including a free bumper sticker! Here’s the condensed version of Save the Guac:

Laurel wilt = disease threatening trees in the Laurel family, including avocado, which has a $13 million impact on Florida’s economy. (Plus, who doesn’t love avocados?)

Redbay ambrosia beetle = the insect associated with spreading Laurel wilt, which can be harbored in unprocessed wood products like firewood and transported around the state

Guacamole = tastes awesome, and largely consists of avocado

Visit http://www.savetheguac.com to learn more about how you can help Save the Guac and protect Florida’s avocado industry and environment from laurel wilt and the redbay ambrosia beetle. Plus, Cinco de Mayo is coming up, and it would be a sad celebration without guac!
