We're starting a revolution… Who’s joining?!
.
It’s our mission to kickstart a revolution in the world of garden tools and, while battery-power is on the rise, there’s still a lot of work to be done. 
.
Follow us for #Challenge2025 and tell petrol-power to #SMOGOFF by lending us your voice - comment, share and help raise awareness around the dangers of petrol-powered gardening tools.

#Gardening #Petrol #ZeroEmissions
There are several ways people are making an individual difference to the environment, from recycling and eating less meat, to reducing our reliance on petrol and diesel-powered cars, and making our homes more energy-efficient – and 84% of those we surveyed for the #Challenge2025 Report agree that everybody should help to reduce the effects of pollution.
.
One area that’s often overlooked is the use of petrol power within the world of gardening – and it’s clear to see that it’s having an impact on our health and environment.

#ZeroEmissions #PetrolPower #AirPollution
Petrol-powered tools have proven to emit significant levels of emissions so it’s our mission with #Challenge2025 to shift the conversation from reducing the number of cars on our roads, to focusing on the dangers of using petrol power as a whole.
.
In 2011, a test between a Ford V8 Pickup truck and a standard 4 Stroke Leaf Blower found that the leaf blower’s tiny engine produced 6.8 times more nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide than the V8 truck’s engine – and 13.5 times more carbon dioxide! 🚗

The move to green energy, such as batteries and electric vehicles, is vital to tackling the climate crisis.
.
That’s one of the reasons a plan to coordinate the global introduction of clean technologies, to drive down costs quickly, was agreed upon at the @cop26uk Summit in Glasgow earlier this month.

#Challenge2025 #COP26 #ClimateCrisis
In the UK alone there are an estimated 5.4 million people currently receiving treatment for asthma and lung-related conditions, according to @asthmauk - and air pollution is thought to worsen the symptoms of asthma and COPD.
.
By reducing pollution by 50% in public areas, such as schools and playgrounds, the rate of poor lung function amongst children – including other health conditions, such as asthma – could be halved. We know that it’s not only cars that are responsible for causing pollution around schools – outdoor power equipment is a significant contributor to air pollution in these areas too.
.
To find out more – and to discover how you can play a part in reducing emissions – read the #Challenge2025 Report.

#WorldCOPDAwarenessDay
Schools, parents and charities are calling on local authorities to improve air quality around schools. It’s thought that by reducing pollution by 50% in these areas, the rate of poor lung function amongst children – including other health conditions, such as asthma – could be halved. 
.
It’s not only cars that are responsible for causing pollution around schools – outdoor power equipment contributes significantly to air pollution in these areas.

#ZeroEmissions #CleanAirZone
Have you tried our brand-new Emissions Calculator yet? 
.
It's designed to help you understand the dangers of using petrol-powered gardening equipment in our outdoor spaces, and the impact our gardening activities are having on our health and environment, so you can make an informed decision when considering making the switch from petrol to battery power. 
.
Test it for yourself today via the #LinkInBio.

#SMOGOFF #ZeroEmissions #PetrolPower
If only 16% of trade users associate petrol power with safety, why do petrol-powered gardening tools continue to be the primary option for UK councils? 🤔
.
With #Challenge2025, it’s our mission to make people aware of the dangers of petrol-powered tools, not just on our environment but also on the health of ourselves and our communities. 
.
Don't just take our word for it – you can download a copy of The Report for free via the #LinkInBio.
It might be Halloween, but one of the scariest things you might do today is look up the environmental impact of your petrol-powered tools...
.
To learn about the emissions produced by petrol-powered gardening tools, and why you should be making the switch to battery power, try our emissions calculator.

#SMOGOFF #Halloween
How common do you think petrol-related injuries and illnesses are amongst professional trade users?
.
We surveyed hundreds of professionals to find out, and the results speak for themselves with 63% of respondents experiencing health issues related to petrol-powered tools.
.
It's time to find a greener, cleaner and safer alternative; It's time to join the battery-powered revolution.

Did you know...
.
👉  50% of the petrol required to run a car is needed to run ONE leaf blower?
👉  89% of UK Council tools are petrol powered?
👉 Petrol powered outdoor power equipment is not regulated to the same extent cars are.
.
If those statements shock you as much as us, and you're interested in learning how to make a change, follow #Challenge2025.

#SMOGOFF #ZeroEmissions
What health problems are experienced by petrol users? To what extent does the trade community suffer petrol-related injuries or illnesses?
.
Over one-fifth of those we surveyed for the #Challenge2025 Report claimed that the noise from petrol-powered engines has caused damage to their hearing – and we aren't surprised. Petrol chainsaws operate, on average, at 20 decibels higher than battery-powered models, and petrol mowers around 12 decibels higher than batteries.
.
Have you ever experienced any long-lasting effects of using petrol-powered tools? Let us know in the comments.

#Challenge2025 #Petrol
Why should you, your children, family and friends needlessly breathe in the emissions of petrol-powered outdoor equipment, when there’s plenty of battery-powered alternatives available for everybody to use?
.
In recent years, technology has rapidly caught up and now offers viable alternatives to petrol power, making our outdoor and community spaces quieter and safer for everybody.

#ZeroEmissions #ClimateChange #AirPollution
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.

#ZeroEmissions #BatteryPower #PowerReimagined
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.

#ZeroEmissions #Environment #PowerReimagined #BatteryPower
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.
.

Are you aware to what extent you are having a negative impact on the environment, with the use of petrol-powered gardening equipment? 
.
With #Challenge2025, we have created an Emissions Calculator. It's designed to help you understand the impact your daily activities are having on the environment, based on your petrol usage.
