Why So Many Invasives?

If you find yourself wondering why nurseries are still able to market and sell invasive species even though we know that invasive plants cause damages of up to $100 billion annually, the simple explanation stated in this article might be surprising.  Like many things that we come to realize are environmentally harmful or non-sustainable (or just need to be changed for other reasons) it is often a question of the lack of legislation as opposed to common sense that is needed to make a positive change.  Check out the Nature Conservancy website for more stories like the one linked above.
