A beautiful lawn, without oil

June 16th, 2010

Like everyone else, I’ve been examining my use of oil and petrochemicals in the wake of the BP hemorrhage in the gulf.
We all know that getting a higher mileage car, a hybrid or even an electric vehicle, would slash our personal oil dependency.
But if you’re like me, not ready to trade in the functioning vehicle in the driveway, you’ll need to look elsewhere to squeeze some oil out of your consumption. Fortunately, and unfortunately, American consumer goods are infused with petrochemicals and oil byproducts. Plastics, pesticides and a vast array of products are made with oil. Not to mention that many of the foods we buy have high oil costs when they’re transported from thousands of miles away. So pick your starting point, reduce and recycle plastics; buy local food; go organic.

TruGreen going greener with new lawn services

March 19th, 2009

From Green Right Now Reports

TruGreen, the largest lawn care services provider in the U.S., announced it going greener by introducing a new lawn care program that includes organic lawn products.

TruGreen said its “Go greener” service will be tested in 38 markets this spring before rolling out nationally in 2010. However, the company says its new natural, organic products will be immediately available nationwide on request.

While TruGreen is not going to be completely organic, the new “Targeted Lawn Care” suite of services will be more Earth friendly. That shift in company philosophy resulted from customer research and is evidenced by TruGreen dropping the “ChemLawn” branding it had widely used.
