How bad is a gas-powered lawn mower?

18 June 2008

Um, yikes: according to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), your average gas-powered lawn mower puts out as much pollution per hour as eleven cars.  So, mowing your lawn with one of those is like driving eleven cars at once for an hour.  Might be time to look into some alternatives.  If you’re particularly spry or looking for some more outdoor activity to keep you into shape, those old push mowers can get the job done and burn some calories at the same time.  Otherwise, there are some great electric mowers out there – and yes, they do come in cordless!
