UPDATE: (April 18, 2009) Many thanks to everyone for participating in this Great Green Giveaway.  Congratulations to our 2 lucky winners! First Prize Winner = Beth Stockdale and Second Prize Winner = Allyson Ayala.  If you didn’t win, don’t despair — look in the right hand column of our site, under Green Giveaways and try your luck on our next one…ya gotta be in it, to win it.

(Original Post):  Kick off spring by winning an eco-friendly lawn tool.  This awesome Great Green Giveaway is sponsored by Black and Decker.  Our First Prize Winner will be able to spruce up their yard by using a brand spanking new, eco friendly, rechargeable cordless lawnmower. The Second Prize Winner will receive a rechargeable, cordless leaf sweeper.


They run on electricity.  No need for gasoline!  These lawn care tools emit zero emissions with no spilled oil or gasoline to pollute the environment and your yard.  How cool is that?   Save money, the planet and your hearing, (these are a lot quieter than gas-powered devices).  The EPA reports that a gas powered lawnmower emits as much air pollution (volatile organic compounds) in one hour as driving a car for 100 miles.  The Cordless Lawnmower is Energy Star rated, and will cost less than $10 per year to operate.

If you don’t have a yard but know someone who does – these clean and green yard tools would make great gifts.

1st Prize valued at approximately $400 + (plus free shipping, anywhere in the U.S.)

2nd Prize valued at approximately $70 + (plus free shipping, anywhere in the U.S.)
