There is a great need to cut back on fossil fuels. Our environment, our sustainability, our weather and even our health depends on this. If I were mayor, I would initiate a program that would only allow the use of non-gasoline mowers. This would include a series of steps.
First, new equipment would have to be sold with new technology — electric, solar, hydro, etc. Second, for those who can’t afford to buy this new technology, I would set up a program employing people who can transform regular mowers into solar mowers. This would be a free service and it would create jobs. I would also create a fund to which people can contribute to this program. It will help the government and the environment and save our planet one lawn at a time. Just think of on how much gasoline we use in Florida to maintain our lawns, and how big a contribution such a program can make toward a better environment.
