Dear Palisades resident,
In California, gas-powered landscaping equipment – from mowers and blowers to trimmers – is releasing as much or more smog into our air than all the millions of cars on the road. What’s worse is that these machines produce compounds that linger at ground-level – including benzene, butadiene, and formaldehyde – all of which have been found on the interior surfaces of homes with gas-powered-maintained gardens.
In addition to the health risks this equipment is posing to residents and gardeners, the climate-changing potential is also too big to ignore.
Fortunately, there are easy and practical solutions we can all adopt to help create a safer and healthier working and living community while lowering our collective global-warming footprint. You hold the power to do so…for your family, your gardener, your neighbors…and our planet.
Just as we’re seeing more and more electric vehicles on the road, the technology in zero-emissions landscaping equipment has also vastly improved over recent years. But adoption of newer technologies is often met with skepticism and financial barriers.
Resilient Palisades is collaborating with a zero-emissions landscaping expert Dan Mabe – the founder of the nationally recognized zero-emissions landscaping leader AGZA who’s partnering with the Southern California Air Quality Management District – to help guide homeowners towards the newest and best zero-emissions landscaping technologies on the market. Collectively, we will provide you with everything you’ll need to make the shift, from talking points to speak with your gardeners to free in-home training and rebates of up to 75% off new equipment.
We are here to provide you with the facts, empower you with solutions, and support you in making the shift to a zero-emissions garden.
