The Clean Air Foundation is sponsoring the Mow Down Pollution program to encourage Canadian homeowners to retire their old, inefficient gas mowers and trimmers.
From their website:
To participate, drop into any Home Depot location across Canada from April 19-29, 2007 to return your higher polluting gas lawnmower or trimmer. You'll receive an instant rebate off the purchase of a cleaner alternative lawncare product including push, electric or low-emission gas mowers and trimmers. Working with the Auto Recyclers of Canada, we'll ensure your returned gas lawnmower or trimmer is recycled responsibly – free of charge.
An hour of mowing with an old lawnmower can produce the same emissions as a 1000 kilometre journey in a modern car - so if you can't cut your commute, you should reconsider how you cut your lawn.
For more information, see the Mow Down Pollution website.
