Clean water for Long Island
To GroMoreGood means to protect Long Island’s waterways, together.
Working toward a solution
Water quality is one of the most critical issues facing Long Island today. Stormwater runoff and excess nitrogen are creating algal blooms, polluting drinking water and disrupting the health of the entire ecosystem.
We all play a role in protecting water on Long Island. That’s why we have made changes to our product formulation and why we are investing in local community infrastructure and educating homeowners about sustainable lawn and garden practices. We are working with Long Island to fight for clean water. Join us.
Crafted for Long Island waterways
Now more than ever, Long Island homeowners want their actions to positively impact local waterways. Caring for their lawns and gardens sustainably is an important step and often simple way that homeowners can contribute to water protection. And we know it’s our responsibility to help them achieve their goals.
That's why we created Scotts® Turf Builder® Long Island Lawn Food, a new product designed specifically for Long Island’s climate and soil. Each bag has less nitrogen and a 50% slow-release formula to prevent nutrients from overwhelming the plant and seeping into the groundwater.
Plus, 100% of the profits for three years will be donated to local Long Island community programs aimed at improving water quality.
Local investment for local impact
We’re partnering with key environmental groups on Long Island to educate consumers, community members and the next generation of homeowners about the importance of preserving the island’s water quality.
