One of the most asked questions we get with #Challenge2025 is "where did you get these results from?"
.
A couple of months ago, 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! 😱

#SMOGOFF #ZeroEmissions
Start the new year with a cleaner, quieter and safer future in mind. And, with 2022 underway, there's only three years left of #Challenge2025!
.
It's our vision that, by the end of 2025, battery technology will become the principal power source for domestic and professional gardeners alike - but we need your support.

#SMOGOFF #NewYear #Emissions
One of the main goals of #Challenge2025 is to make people aware of the dangers of petrol-powered tools – not just on the environment, but also on the health of ourselves and our communities. 
.
If almost two-thirds of trade users are suffering from petrol-related ailments, it’s no surprise that 82% of people surveyed said they would consider a battery-powered tool for their next purchase.

#ZeroEmissions #Battery #Illness
Have you ever considered the irony of using petrol-powered tools to maintain outdoor spaces? 
.
While they're designed to improve our much-loved spaces like parks and playing fields, petrol tools are generating harmful emissions that damage the very environment they're trying to enhance!

Have you read The #Challenge2025 Report? 
.
Bringing together the results of surveys, research, and emissions testing, it uncovers the hidden dangers of petrol-powered gardening equipment - and gives you the tools to make a positive change.

Demand better!
.
By demanding better from the tools we use in our gardens, to encouraging others – such as local councils and groundskeepers – to do the same, we can leave petrol power in the past and create a cleaner, quieter, and safer future for us all. 
.
There are lots of ways for each of us to do our bit for the planet and following #Challenge2025 is just one of them.

#zeroemissions #petrol #climatechange
Today – 5th December 2021 – marks @unitednations’ World Soil Day, which focuses its attention on the importance of healthy soil and advocates for the sustainable management of soil resources.
.
This year's campaign - Keep soil alive, protect soil biodiversity - aims to raise awareness of the importance of sustaining healthy ecosystems and human well-being as if we do not act soon, the fertility of the soil will continue to be adversely affected at an alarming rate, threatening global food supplies and food safety.
.
One of the biggest contributors to unhealthy soil is air pollution so follow #Challenge2025 to learn how you can make a difference today.

#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.
