Cleaner, quieter, safer.

At EGO, we have seen the future.

At EGO, we have seen the future.

Challenge 2025 is our call to arms to educate and empower change in both domestic and professional outdoor power equipment users to make battery the principal power source and leave petrol where it belongs, in the past.

We believe that it makes no sense for tools that are designed to improve our environment to be at the same time producing noxious emissions and noise pollution that damage the very environment they are trying to enhance.

The time has come to take up the challenge and insist on change.

The good news is the battery technology to match the power of petrol already exists today!

When you picture the future, what do you want it to look like?
.
Clean? Safe? Quiet? 
.
We can have this, and one of the ways we can make it possible is by switching to battery power - a greener alternative to petrol.

The team from @EGOPowerPlusEU was honoured to be invited to Carolus Clusius College in Zwolle, Netherlands, to speak at their durability festival in the summer. 
.
Our aim was to empower students to choose battery-power tools over petrol ones and, as part of the session, the students were asked to solve a ‘physics issue’ about Voltage, Amperage, and Autonomy.
.
We want to thank the college for having us, and we hope the students enjoyed it as much as we did.

When we tested a range of petrol-power tools at our Millbrook Testing Centre, we expected emissions to be high...
.
The actual results were much more shocking...!
.
Watch our video to see the level of emissions produced by some commonly used petrol-power tools 🎬

👉 89% of UK council tools are petrol powered,
👉 They use 600,000 litres of fuel each year,
👉 A petrol leaf blower gives out 11x more emissions than a Ford Fiesta!

How do these stats make you feel? Sad?Angry? Empowered to make a change?

Working in partnership with @EdenProjects, we have pledged to plant a tree for every @EGOPowerPlusEU power tool sold. We'll then plant another one for every tool that is registered with an extended warranty 🌳🌳
.
That means that by buying battery-powered tools, not only are you helping to reduce emissions and noise pollution, but you are also helping to give back to the planet!

Of all those who took part in our survey (a mixture of home gardeners and professional power tool users), 66% reported that they had experienced injuries or health problems linked to the use of petrol-power tools. This can't continue!
.
The noise and vibration that come with petrol-powered tools can lead to hearing loss, tingling sensations in the hands and arms, and 'white finger'. Making the switch to battery power can make a significant difference to the health of the user, and that's something we should all be fighting for.

There is irony in the fact that the tools used to maintain and enhance our green spaces are in fact responsible for pumping emissions into the atmosphere. 
.
If UK councils actively made the switch to battery-power tools from petrol-power ones, they would be doing even more for the environment.

Imagine you were in charge of stopping climate change...💭 
.
What would you do?
.
That was the question we posed to members of the public and they came up with some innovative responses. Here's what one person would do, but how about you?

One of the major benefits of using battery-power tools is that the risk of damage to the user is greatly reduced.
.
Battery-powered tools have fewer moving parts, meaning they produce less vibration and less noise.
.
The result is they are much more comfortable to use and cause fewer health issues
.
We put a range of @EGOPowerPlusEU tools to the test to measure their noise and vibration impact against their petrol-power counterparts. Watch our video to see the results...

We headed to Birmingham to find out what people's attitudes were toward clean air. Take a look...

#Challenge2025 #PowerReimagined #CleanAir #ZeroEmissions #Pollution #CleanAirZone
We believe everyone should have the knowledge and tools to understand the differences between using petrol power and greener alternatives like battery power 🔋
.
Our Education Pack, featuring Smoggy, aims to teach Key Stage 2 pupils about air pollution; what causes it, what impact it has, and how we as a community can rid our planet of it.
.
We are also giving schools the chance to win £2,500 of @egopowerpluseu battery-powered gardening equipment.

#Challenge2025 #Emissions #ClimateChange #Education
A cleaner, quieter, safer future. Who doesn't want that? 
.
We can make it happen, if we act now. 
.
The future doesn't have to feature noisy, harmful petrol-powered tools. By switching to a greener alternative - battery-power - we can begin to combat the damage caused by these tools.

When we partnered with @EdenProjects, it was because of a joint commitment to protect and sustain our environment which is being damaged by the use of petrol power. 
.
For every @egopowerpluseu tool sold in Europe, we have pledged to plant a tree 🌳 We will then plant an additional tree for every tool that is registered for an extended warranty 🌳
.
This means by buying EGO, you are helping the planet more than you may have thought.

Would you be surprised to learn that councils often operate within parks and green spaces using unregulated machinery? You're not alone!
.
We are on a mission to remove these harmful, petrol-powered tools, and re-educate those who use them on the benefits of battery power 🔋

We recently put a range of battery-powered gardening tools to the test and compared them to petrol-powered tools, to see how they differ in usability.
.
The results were impressive, with the @egopowerpluseu tools returning significantly less noise and vibration: 
.
👂 EGO Leaf Blower - Decibel reduction of 7.6dB & vibration reduction of 0.78m/s 2
👂 Mower - Decibel reduction of 5.4dB & vibration reduction of 1.27m/s 2
👂 Line Trimmer - Decibel reduction of 15.8dB & vibration reduction of 1.9m/s 2

Did you know that 89% of council tools are petrol powered? 😱 
.
That means using over 600,000 litres of fuel each year. 
.
We launched #Challenge2025 to raise awareness around the damage this is doing to our environment. Find out more about the impact petrol powered tools are having, and what we can do to combat it, in our report.

One of the most asked questions we get with #Challenge2025 is "where did you get these results from?"
.
Last year, we visited the Millbrook testing centre to run a series of emissions and fuel economy tests, to discover the true impact of using petrol-powered gardening tools. Each tool was run at maximum speed, until stable exhaust temperature and emissions were achieved. And, the results are shocking! 😱
