Air North Texas featured a company that does lawns sustainably. Their website (I boldfaced) http://cleanairlawncaredallas.com/hire-the-lawn-care-experts/ says they “use clean electric and biodiesel powered lawn care equipment that runs on renewable energy. Our electric equipment is charged by solar panels mounted on our trucks, reducing our net emissions to zero and letting us recharge our equipment even while we work”.
So I contacted https://www.facebook.com/rjr.smith who is the founder of Raising Men Lawncare, Huntsville LA to start a crowdfunding to be able to afford sustainable lawn care equipment so the young men do not get exposed to so much benzene and other harmful emissions with traditional lawn mowers, leaf blowers, etc.
Briggs & Stratton donated lawn equipment to Raising Men Lawncare. The VIDEO of this honorable program for our youth to mow lawns of the elderly and disabled can be viewed here…
BUT we can do better and so can Briggs & Stratton. Impressive emissions reductions information can be found on their website as they claim albeit riddled with typos…“Emission from briggs&stratton engines manufactured today average 75% less than 1995 models,In addtion up to half of emission from outdoor power equipment is preventable”
I’m asking Briggs & Stratton to begin to OFFER solar powered lawn equipment.
And so I’m also asking the NAACP to help assist in the idea to give these young men a ZERO EMISSIONS “thank you” in their work by helping with the crowd funding marketing efforts.
That safer lawn equipment exists and that minorities do not have access to the clean air technologies is quite bluntly…a sin and an environmental injustice.
They even have renewable robot mowers that the military uses which is obviously not viable for Raising Men Lawncare work.
We depend on powerful companies such as Briggs & Stratton to be leaders of REAL sustainable change for our youth’s future and we need NAACP to be more involved in resolving environmental injustices like fracking near minorities.
