If every lawn owner composted grass clippings, we could cut the landfill congestion by a whopping 18 per cent during summer and spring!
Avoiding overwatering can save about 12 per cnet of a home owners water use during the summer – an average of over 50 gallons a week. If 100,000 lawn owners do it, 5 million gallons are saved!
If even 10 per cent of lawn owners began using organic pesticides, it would remove 2.5 to 5 million pounds of toxic chemicals from the environment every year!
