Green Tip of the Month
One gas-powered leaf blower can emit as much pollution as 80 cars. Rake the leaves and mow the lawn in a much more environmentally friendly way by choosing hand-powered electric tools over gas. Take your environmental impact one step further and consider turning collected leaves, branches and weeds into nutrient-rich soil ready for your spring garden. Mostly everything in your yard is compostable and you can mix in compostable food waste to increase your yield.
