If you`re looking to reduce your C02, you can do this by switching to battery power.
Petrol-powered gardening tools are unregulated, meaning the emissions aren`t tested.
To learn more about these emissions, we took them to Millbrook Testing Centre to test them for ourselves, and the results are appalling. One example showed that a petrol-powered leaf blower produces 11x more emissions than a Ford Fiesta. Yes, you read that correctly, ELEVEN times more.
By making the switch to battery-power, you can drastically reduce your carbon footprint, without having to settle on performance.
Use our simple Emissions Calculator to understand the emissions that your petrol-powered tools produce. Simply enter the tools and frequency, and we`ll do the rest before offering suggestions on how to reduce your carbon footprint.

4x more NOx is emitted by a petrol brush cutter than a Ford Fiesta.
Despite this, petrol-powered gardening tools are not regulated and are able to produce hideous amounts of air pollution. Not only do petrol-powered tools produce large amounts of air pollution, but they also produce lots of noise pollution, having a huge impact on the hearing of users.
By switching to battery-power, you could make a huge positive impact for yourself and people across the globe.
Noise pollution is often underestimated and its impact is not fully understood by many people.
In fact, it can have a significant impact on people`s mental health, as one lady we interviewed pointed out. This is especially true in summer when noise can be very isolating. Therefore, we believe that people need to be more mindful and considerate by switching to battery-powered gardening tools.
As well as protecting the hearing of the user, it makes for a much more pleasant experience for everyone in the vicinity, whilst not having to settle for less power or performance from your tool.

With Christmas being a fortnight away, Christmas trees have been put up all across the globe to mark the celebration.
Thanks to our partnership with @EdenReforest, we`re planting trees all year long, helping combat climate change.
However, this isn`t something we`re doing alone, and are supported by @EgoPowerPlusEU who pledge to plant a tree for every EGO tool sold in Europe and in addition, each tool that is registered for extended warranty.
It`s International Volunteer Day, a day to celebrate those who volunteer!
We`re celebrating by having a throwback to our support of @Machinery_Nation`s EGO SOS.
In the video, we supported two lovely families to get back on top of their overgrown gardens with the use of our battery-powered gardening tools, proving that you can help people and support the environment at the same time.
