Green Technology — Why it Matters

Certainly, alternatively fueled mowers, propane powered equipment, and hybrid fleet vehicles aren’t the cheapest way to go, but at Landscape Solutions, we understand the greater cost associated with the alternative — business as usual. Just this week, the American Lung Association issued a scathing report on the state of the air in Marion County (Indianapolis, IN). For the number of days with high ozone pollution, Marion County was given a D. Ozone aggressively attacks lung tissue by reacting chemically with it. For the level of particle pollution, the dirty smoky part of exhaust produced by factories and vehicles, Marion County was graded an F.

These grades mean that the quality of the air we breathe in central Indiana is VERY poor. Marion County is tied for 19th for worst in the nation with Ozone pollution levels and 24th in the nation for worst polluted county in the country. While we all suffer from poor air quality, some of our population suffers an even greater impact:

  • pediatric & adult asthma sufferers
  • those with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • people with cardiovascular disease
  • diabetics
  • children under the age of 18
  • adults age 65 and over
  • those with low incomes (under the poverty level)
