LAWN CARE - PUSH MOWERS - NO GAS REQUIRED

Push Mowers for Outdoor Living

A push mower is an easy way to cut your grass and keep the air clean for everyone to breathe. Did you know that traditional gas-powered mowers are responsible for 5 percent of the nation's air pollution, according to the Environmental Protection Agency? One gas mower running for an hour emits the same amount of pollutants as eight new cars driving 55 mph for the same amount of time, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists. Push mowers are a logical step towards cleaning up the air pollution problem, so that nitrous oxide gases don't come from your backyard to contribute to smog, respiratory illness and global warming. There are even state gas mower buyback programs sponsored by the EPA, so check with your state for rebates.

Reduce landfill waste with compostable lawn bags that break down in weeks rather than centuries, compared to their plastic counterparts. They have a large capacity and are durable enough to handle the toughest lawn care or composting jobs. They are also manufactured with extreme flexibility and are built to "breathe" so the composting or break down process happens faster and more efficiently. Though these bags are made from corn, they are completely shelf stable so you don’t have to worry about them breaking down in your pantry or shed.
