The Save Our Cypress Coalition continues to call on Wal-Mart, Home Depot and Lowe’s to stop selling cypress mulch that is not certified as sustainable, no matter where the logging occurs.

While cautiously celebrating Wal-Mart’s move in Louisiana, the coalition has accumulated formal letters signed by more than 160 organizations from across the U.S. and around the world asking that the retailers stop selling cypress mulch.

Supporters include conservation groups, garden clubs, anglers, eco-tourism operators and members of the faith-based community.
