Improving Air Quality Along Colorado’s Front Range:
The Mow Down Pollution Program
Gas-powered lawn mowers and other lawn equipment emit greenhouse gases and contribute to ground-level ozone pollution in the Denver Metro/North Front Range area. By switching to an electric mower you can make a positive impact on our air quality and human health.
The Regional Air Quality Council has launched the Mow Down Pollution – exchange program as part of their efforts to mitigate ground-level ozone and enhance air quality. This initiative offers vouchers to support individuals and organizations who opt to recycle their gas-powered lawn equipment and replace it with rechargeable or corded electric-powered alternatives.
