I Want To Mow Your Lawn — a non-profit organization providing no-cost lawn mowing and yard care services for seniors, military veterans, and disabled persons — has announced its adoption of "green" alternative lawn care practices.
Since its inception in 2020, the organization's background-screened landscaping volunteers have helped individuals nationwide with their lawn care needs for free. Now, the organization is encouraging and advocating for its network of helpers to try out electric, offering eco-friendly equipment upgrades that are available directly through the non-profit.
"With the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimating about 123.73 billion gallons of gasoline consumed in the United States in 2020, an average of about 338 million gallons per day, and with gas prices rising, now is the time to take concerted action in the lawn care space," said Founder and Chief Lawn Mower Brian Schwartz. "Battery-powered equipment not only saves our existing volunteers money, but also makes such volunteerism more attractive to others who want to help people and the environment."
I Want To Mow Your Lawn is a donation-driven entity, and its website makes donations and corporate sponsorships easy through programs and transaction options that can work seamlessly within senior citizen and military discount programs.
"This organization is about more than just free lawn care; it's a small but meaningful and easy way to bring the citizens of our communities together by helping our fellow neighbors — and in an eco-conscious way that's more protective of the environment," Schwartz said. "While the individuals receiving service are always appreciative, a clean cut and nonpolluting community contributes to everyone's overall well-being — it's a meaningful way to serve a greater good."
