How ‘Green’ is Your Grass
It has been warm and sunny enough that I broke out my lawnmower and cut the grass for the first time this past weekend. Which many of my neighbors did as well, however, I have to admit I feel superior when I cut my grass. This is because I purchased an electric lawn mower last year and have loved using it ever since. While my neighbors look at me strangely as I am tethered by a long cord and not riding around on some powerful zero turn mower, I smugly know hat I am doing the right thing. Lawnmowers are some of the worst contributors to pollution and carbon emissions. Running a typical 2 cycle engine lawn mower for 1 hour releases more carbon and pollutants than driving a Cadillac Escalade from here to Chicago and back.
