The unprecedented changes in the Earth's climate, because of human activity, means that many of the changes are now inevitable and irreversible, according to the climate scientists of the @IPCC. 
.
One of the key takeaways of IPCC's research is that we cannot continue using fossil fuels in our everyday activities, and they're used in cars, lorries and many of the world's garden tools. This was something we at EGO recognised, seeing that action must be taken to leave petrol garden tools where they belong, in the past, to usher in a safer, cleaner future. This is #Challenge2025.

When we, as individuals, are being asked to be more conscious of our environmental impact, should this also be a consideration for local authorities? We believe so.
.
But, 89% of UK Councils are still using petrol-powered tools, despite having evidence that they're actually damaging the environment they're trying to maintain. Battery powered tools are quieter and safer to use, as well as far better for the environments they're maintaining, with zero emissions produced at the point of use.

While air pollution is a recognised issue in general, there is some disparity in recognising the role petrol-powered garden tools play in contributing to the poor air quality in our towns and cities. 
.
Fortunately, some areas - such as California - are taking action by banning high emission tools like petrol leaf blowers, the latest being South Passadena this month.
.

There are lots of ways for each of us to do our bit for the planet - and joining #Challenge2025 is one of them.
.
By demanding better from the tools we use in our gardens, and encouraging others - like councils and professional groundskeepers - to do the same, we can leave petrol power in the past and create a greener safer future for all.

A shocking 89% of UK councils still use petrol-powered tools, using almost 600,000 liters of fuel each year. Yes, you read that right – 600,000 liters of fuel, EACH YEAR! 🤯
.
In other words, with the fuel councils are using each year, you could drive around the circumference of the world – if there were roads – 80 times!
.
Petrol is causing untold damage to our environment, and we want to direct people to the benefits of switching to battery-powered gardening tools.

By the end of 2025, it's our vision that battery-powered technology will become the principle power source for cordless power equipment, for domestic and professional users alike.
.
By making the change to battery power, significant changes will be made - from reducing the volume of emissions and noise pollution, to increasing user safety and comfort. 
.
As part of our mission to highlight the importance of this we have created The Report which reflects on anecdotal and quantitative data to understand the current state of the sector and the resistance to a battery-powered future. To learn more, download a copy today for FREE via the #LinkInBio.

Only 16% of trade users associate petrol power with safety.

Read that again... Only 16% of the 1,255 people we surveyed for The Report associate petrol power with safety. So, why does petrol remain the most popular choice of gardening tool?
.
Have you ever experienced the side effects of using petrol-powered gardening equipment? We'd love to hear from you!

What health problems are experienced by petrol users? And, to what extent do professional users suffer petrol-related injuries or illnesses?
.
According to our research for The Report, almost TWO THIRDS of trade users are suffering - or have suffered - from petrol-related ailments so it comes as no surprise that 82% of those we surveyed said they would consider a battery-powered tool for their next purchase.

With a direct correlation between global warming and the vehicles on our roads, local councils and car manufacturers are pledging to make a change for a greener future – from the introduction of Clean Air Zones to making battery-powered vehicles more readily available. 
.
But, when the best-performing petrol-powered tool produces more than three times the emissions of the average car, where do we draw the line? These tools are still being used to maintain outdoor spaces where Clean Air – or Low Emission – Zones have been introduced.

The European Union has taken the landmark step of enshrining in law a 55% cut in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 – but, what does this mean?
.
The move by the EU to enshrine in law actions to fight climate change is a step in the right direction for the member states. We now hope that this motivates not only countries part of the EU, but those around it and throughout the world, to take the required steps to stop a global catastrophe.

Parks, commons, recreation grounds, playing fields, village greens and market squares - what do these spaces have in common?
.
All of these outdoor spaces play their part in defining communities by providing people with places to meet, play, and socialise – which were particularly important as we moved out of Covid-19 lockdowns. So, why do the tools specially designed to beautify these spaces contribute to their ultimate destruction?
.
Unlike their petrol-powered counterparts, battery-powered tools are quieter and safer to use, as well as being far better for the environment they're maintaining - with zero emissions produced at the point of use.

We have seen the future, and it's cleaner, quieter and safer - but we need your support. 
.
The dangers of petrol-powered engines are nothing new, but their far-reaching impacts might be! We have made some startling discoveries and, to encourage you to make a change, we have bought these findings together to demonstrate the true impact of petrol-powered gardening equipment on our health, communities and environment.
.
Our research shows that people understand the benefits of battery power, and over 80% of people agreed, but fewer than 40% perceive battery tools to offer power, good performance and durability when compared to petrol - and it's our mission to change your mind. Join #Challenge2025 today!

In the UK alone, the government has accelerated its 2040 zero-emission target for cars by 5-years - banning the sale of new petrol, diesel and hybrid cars by 2035 - in-line with the EU's objective to achieve levels of air quality that do not result in unacceptable impacts to human health and the environment. 
.
But, while we applaud these changes, did you know that petrol-powered gardening equipment is one of the biggest contributors of poor air quality within our cities? 
.
Last year we submitted Freedom of Information requests and found that an astonishing 89% of council-owned garden tools are powered by petrol. Collectively, these tools use 600,000 litres of petrol every year. Plus, when you consider the most popular tool produces more toxic emissions than the average car 🤯  it's clear that it's time for a change.

73% of those we surveyed for The Report are taking steps to reduce their impact on the environment - and pollution is an area of concern for most people.
.
With the effects of air pollution in mind, it's our mission to kickstart a revolution in the world of garden tools and, while battery is on the rise in this area, there is much more work to be done. #Challenge2025 is our call to arms to educate and empower both domestic, and professional, outdoor power equipment users to leave petrol where it belongs - in the past!
