Here's an article about a great idea that would support our mission of Fostering Community Sustainability:
When Neighbors Share Lawn Mowers (click for article)
One family with an electric mower that is shared by 4 families could have a big impact on reducing air pollution locally, as mowers have much less pollution control than cars, so a gallon of gas burned in a mower is much worse than a gallon of gas used in car.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average lawn mower emits as much smog-forming air pollution in one hour as an average car traveling almost 200 miles.
1 hour of mowing = almost 200 miles of driving when it comes to air pollution.
