Earth Man Dan visits the Green Tent
LEARN ABOUT THE DARK SIDE OF THE RESIDENTIAL LANDSCAPE MAINTENANCE INDUSTRY...and how to improve it in your yard
Green Zoning is how Dan Mabe and The Greenstation are gradually improving our environment one property at a time.
Did You Know:
- The EPA estimates each weekend approximately 54 million Americans mow their lawns, using 800 million gallons of gas per year. That’s enough gasoline to fill the Rose Bowl 8 times to the rim!
- Gas powered lawn equipment is not subject to the same emission regulations as cars and is a major contributor to the emission of carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, hydrocarbons, lead, ozone and sulfur oxides?
- Despite improvements over the years, the Los Angeles area remains the most ozone-polluted regions in the country, according to a report released by the American Lung Association.
Earth Man Dan will explain the typical practices of residential maintenance mow and blow crews and how you can work with your gardener to reduce gas consumption, toxic emissions, noise levels and the toxic and solid waste being created at your house. He'll conduct hands-on demonstrations of emission free, mowers, mechanical sweepers and other gardening tools and techniques that will immediately improve the quality of life for you and your neighbors—and your gardener.
