The Emmy nominated documentary film, A Chemical Reaction — while being a heart-warming, inspirational, human-interest story about the origin of the natural lawn care movement in Canada and the U.S. — is also a powerful tool for individuals and organizations interested in reducing and/or eliminating pesticides from the environment, especially around homes and schools.

The film focuses on the quest of Hudson, Quebec, the first town in North America ever to ban lawn chemicals, including the impact the town has had on similar movements across Canada and the U.S.
The film has drawn rave reviews from critics worldwide.
“It’s even better than An Inconvenient Truth!” — Institute for Cinema Studies
“It’s one of the most eye-opening environmental documentaries I’ve ever seen. Like Moore and Spurlock before them, Tukey and Plymale do an outstanding job of bringing an insidious health issue to light in a way that’s both entertaining and engaging. If you have children and care about the world they’re growing up in, then despite the fact that it may leave you shaken, if not enraged, Hudson: A Chemical Reaction is a film you need to see.”
