Bedford 2020 is working with the Town of Bedford to educate our community on the environmental issues associated with using gas-powered leaf blowers. It’s not just about the noise – although that is no small thing and one that concerns many community members. But gas-leaf blowers are highly polluting, bad for topsoil retention and very damaging to bird and insect habitats.
Reducing the use of gas-powered leaf blowers is very much in line with our community’s climate action goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 20% by 2020. If you already utilize good environmental practices in your landscaping work, thank you. If not, please consider alternatives.
