Gardeners Contributed to New Orleans Levee Break

Believe it!  The New York Times declares that the most dangerous threat to cypress swamps of the Gulf Coast may be garden mulch.  Those mulch companies are still grinding up entire cypress forests, most of which will never grow back.  The EPA has tried to do something about it but the Supremes put the break on regulatory help.  Incredibly, big boxes are still selling mulch from unsustainable sources.

Now you guys know enough not to buy cypress mulch but what about Harry and Harriet Homeowner, cluelessly shopping at Home Depot?
