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. 
.
Have you made the change and joined the battery-powered revolution yet? If not, what are you waiting for...? Join #Challenge2025 today!

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!

Two-thirds of professional users have reported suffering from some kind of illness or injury from using petrol-powered tools, including:
.
👎  23% reported a loss of grip strength
👎  22% suffered sensation loss in their fingers 
.
Could that be why 82% said they would consider a battery-powered alternative for their next purchase?

To run a leaf blower for ONE hour uses 2.16 litres of fuel but, to compare, the average consumer vehicle uses 3.6 litres of fuel! 
.
Read that again…
.
A leaf blower uses 2.16 litres of fuel EVERY HOUR but the average consumer vehicle uses just 3.6 litres of fuel. 
.
While these levels of fuel consumption might not seem significant, when a tool designed to move leaves needs more than HALF the fuel required of a vehicle constructed to transport four people, it is a concern.

Why is the use of petrol-powered gardening equipment still so high? 
.
We know you care about the environment – 73% of those surveyed for The Report have said they are taking steps towards reducing their personal environmental impact – so it doesn't make sense to continue using tools that have been proven to have a detrimental impact on our environment.

Any idea how much fuel the average professional gardener uses in a year? 
.
It's equivalent to driving just under 2,000 miles in an average car 🚗
.
To put that into perspective, it's the same as 16 cars travelling from London to Birmingham, or 4 cars completing the 480-mile trip from Paris to Marseille!
.
That's a lot of fuel, right? 
.
Join our revolution and let's get rid of petrol-powered tools once and for all.

In the UK, 89% of council tools are petrol-powered. That's more than 22,000 tools that are used to maintain green spaces.
.
The irony here is that these tools actually produce worryingly high levels of emissions which ultimately damage the environments they're designed to maintain.
.
Find out just how much damage these tools are doing by downloading The Report. In it, you'll find insight, opinion, and Emissions Tests on some of the most popular tools on the market.

Air pollution is amongst the most prevalent threats to public health, sitting alongside heart disease and cancer. 
.
Fortunately, more is happening to reduce air pollution. Authorities are introducing #CleanAirZones, manufacturers are committing to reductions in emissions, and individuals are changing habits to make a positive change.
.
At #Challenge2025 we're highlighting the dangers of petrol-powered garden tools and helping gardeners to make informed decisions when it comes to reducing the environmental impact of gardening.
