Replacing 500 gas powered lawn mowers with electric motors can reduce these effects on air pollution:
Reduce 212 lbs of hydrocarbons
Reduce 1.7 lbs of nitrogen oxide
Reduce 5.6 lbs of irritating particles
Reduce 1724 lbs of carbon dioxide
Gas powered lawn mowers produce pollutants by releasing emissions and harmful substances into the air. 17 million gallons of fuel is spilled each year refueling lawn mowers, which contributes to 5% of the nation's air pollution.
You can lower your carbon footprint, reduce lawn mower pollution and help the environment by using electric powered lawn mowers for your lawn care. Electric mowers are less powerful but have low maintenance and operating costs.
