Use a push mower instead of a power lawn mower to mow your lawn

You may not think about it, but that little motor in your family power lawn mower runs on oil. While it’s important to change your mower’s oil routinely to ensure it runs cleanly, decreasing its environmental impact, you can make sure its completely environmental friendly by switching to a push mower. According to the Government of Canada, using a typical gas-powered mower produces 48 kilograms of Greenhouse Gas emissions each season, that’s as much air pollution as a car driven 550 kilometres. Not only will you be saving the planet, but think of the arm muscles you could build! Learn more about the impact lawn mower has on the environment: Lawnmower Buying Guide Environmental Facts
