Is it a plausible idea to run a lawn care business offering green services...i.e mowing with reel lawn mowers and battery powered trimmers and blowers?

Speaking of "crazy"...

Any emissions associated with powering our biodiesel equipment or driving our trucks are offset with verified vehicle emissions offsets purchased from Carbonfund.org. This reduces our mowing services net emissions to zero.


What a crock of sh.... ummm... you know.

I guess I could reduce the "net emissions" of my Silverado to "zero" too if I just pay someone a bunch of money. :rolleyes: Friggin' retards. And people fall for this crap.

Oh well, I guess there's a market for it.
I advertise that "organic yard debris is taken to a recycling center to be turned into usable compost". Not because I'm "green", but because it's the closest place for me to do so. Still, people like that sort of thing, and a couple of people have commented that they like that I recycle my waste.

I would check out that clean air lawn care company. They seem to be really enjoying a lot of media attention and growth from keying in on such a niche market.

Keep us posted if they inspire you to go in that direction.

I saw a battery operated Zero turn the other day that would be a green help

Brochure said it could mow couple acres between charges

if you actually want to be efficient with your time and energy, gas all the way.
