Campaign to Reduce Use of Gas Blowers: Your Yard, Your Decision

Did you know that gas-powered lawn equipment is endangering our air quality? With 2-stroke engines that do not have pollution controls, this equipment is contributing to air pollutants proven to be detrimental to human health: small particular matter, nitrogen oxides (ozone-forming), excess CO2 as well as toxins such as benzene, formaldehyde and 1,3 butadiene.

Fairfield County ranks 28th highest of 3,100 counties in the U.S. for fine particulate matter, 27th for nitrogen oxide and 33rd for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s). See this information and more by a non-profit Frontier Group at the link below. You can make a difference!
