Fairfield, CT (Nov. 1, 2017): MowGreen LLC, is one of six semi-finalists chosen by judges at Green America to compete for a seasonal eco-award: People & Planet Fall, 2017. This season’s award is focused on clean energy. MowGreen leverages solar, 100% renewable electricity and carbon credits for a carbon neutrally charged, zero emission electric lawn service that avoids 100’s of tons of carbon per year, helping reduce global warming and severe weather, while bringing fresh air, and peace and quiet back to neighborhoods.
MowGreen Founder Dan Delventhal said, “I am so happy to see Green America recognizing clean energy pioneers with their award program to help so many companies and citizens continue to work toward a healthier environment.
Most people don’t realize that gasoline lawn care is responsible for over 5% of our air pollution (EPA), and they are surprised to learn how critical it is to change the way lawns are cared for. After all, it’s a big surprise for many to learn that their gas lawn care emissions are roughly equal to a car on the road all year! That’s how important our mission is: Each new customer takes a car off the road from an emission’s perspective, and we are grateful to such a respected organization as Green America to help raise awareness with the awards program”.
