Push Lawn Mowers: for a better tomorrow!

Reduce Carbon Dioxide emissions, grow a healthier lawn and save money!

Did you Know!

Fact: Gas mowers emit Nitrogen oxides, Carbon monoxide, Hydrocarbons, Particulate Matter, and Volatile Organic Compounds.

Gas driven lawn mowers cause monstrous quantities of noise, ground ozone pollution and massive greenhouse gas emissions. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), one gas mower going for one hour is equivalent to eight new cars going 85 km an hour. Image eight older inefficient cars? Shocking!

Be part of the solution!

This spring, Georgian Triangle Earth Days will be employing youth to cut your lawn. The cost will be $25 for in-town front and back yards and will be a pollution free initiative!
