The Organic Garden Space...No Noise Pollution Please...Go Organic


"A lawnmower pollutes as much in one hour as does driving an automobile for 45 miles.
30 to 60% of urban fresh water is used for watering lawns (depending on city).
$5,250,000,000 is spent on fossil fuel-derived fertilizers for U.S. lawns.
67,000,000 lbs of synthetic pesticides used on U.S. lawns.
60,000 to 70,000 severe accidents result from lawnmowers.
580,000,000 gallons of gasoline are used for lawnmowers.
$25,000,000,000 is spent for the lawn care industry.
$700,000,000 is spent for pesticides for U.S. lawns.
20,000,000 acres are planted in residential lawns.
Powered mowers contribute to noise pollution and hearing loss."
