Join leaders of local environmental organizations to discuss unsound lawn practices and possible alternatives going forward.

A recent study found that lawn mowers, trimmers, leaf blowers, and other lawn equipment accounted for a quarter of all emissions of cancer-causing benzene. They also accounted for 17% of volatile organic compounds and 12% of nitrogen oxides, the primary pollutants of smog, and were responsible for 20 million tons of planet-warming carbon dioxide emissions—about 4% of what passenger cars emitted during the year.

More and more places around the country are banning these practices. Join the conversation to share your thoughts!
