January 2018, Michael, my husband lost 10 acres of apple and corn crops to synthetic pesticides. The catastrophic effects not only ranged from the grave loss of all the crop yield but also led to the death of all livestock. Our dogs; Coco and Bailey breathed their last due to repeated exposure to the synthetic pesticides. This terrifying event triggered Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in my dearest Michael, leaving our family crippled. That was exactly when I could either give in to the trauma or fight against it. I chose the latter.
Since I was the better half Michael had chosen for life, I dedicated myself into looking for a solution. And, I did find one. I started talking to various NPIC Pesticide Specialists, thinking this could be my way of saving Michael and countless alike. I wanted to prevent more families from getting shattered.
The process was tiring as I didn’t know much about the organic pesticides, but Coco and Bailey’s unforgettable faces kept me going. MDXconcepts (named after my dearest husband Michael Drummer) began its journey in January 2018. The main motive of the brand became to eliminate the use of chemical pesticides, responsible for more than 200,000 deaths every year and the loss of 200 Million US Dollars for farmers in crops alone.
Michael is good, and I’m sure many more are getting better too.
