Have a Heart, Kill Your Lawn

Few things are more inviting than a flawless green turf, stretching out before you like a luscious green tumbling mat – unless, of course, that lawn is in the Southwestern United States and you are aware of the severity of the drought that marches on in the region. Science comic and California resident Katie McKissick refuses to bow to the peer pressure of the green lawns in her neighborhood, though, and has created a series of badges to explain her singed, lifeless lawn to the quizzical neighbors (who listen intently to her reasoning while mindlessly hosing off their sidewalks…) Wear them with pride, water-conservationists!

More amusing badges by McKissick can be found in her Symbiartic post: Don’t Be a Water Jerk.
