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

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!

Nature Articles - Georgian Triangle Earth Days Celebrations

As things are today, even without any further increases in world population, if every person in the world were to start consuming as Americans do, humanity would require the resources of at least two additional planet Earths to support it.. Since Canadians, Australians and Americans ‘lead’ the world in the rapacious destruction of the planet, vast relief would come with a one child policy for these nations to help curtail the world’s misery.

There is a “Tee Please” golf range there and go 1 Km to the Community Garden sign; alternatively, when coming from Collingwood, take 6th Street west of Rona and turn right on 19 for 2 Km.
