The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation today announced a creative collaboration with Andy Mann, a globally acclaimed environmental photographer. Mann will document U.S. watersheds affected by harmful algal blooms, bringing to life how this pervasive global crisis is affecting communities across the United States.

Driven by excess phosphorus, harmful algal blooms pollute fresh waterways in all 50 states. Over the last decade, The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company has taken action to prevent local nutrient pollution from lawn and garden activity by removing phosphorus from its traditional lawn fertilizer products sold under the Scotts® brand.

Demonstrating its ongoing commitment to this issue, The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation has established a national Water Positive™ initiative dedicated to protecting freshwater in key regions and uniting citizens, scientists, and communities in finding a lasting solution for excess phosphorus.

Photographer Andy Mann has captured stories from key watersheds affected by algal blooms, including the Florida Everglades, Lake Erie, Chesapeake Bay and the Long Island Sound. He will share the culmination of his work through a photo and video docuseries to be revealed on World Water Day in March 2018.
