Gas-powered leaf blowers are extremely loud and a constant nuisance during the high-season summer months. The powerful, two-stroke engines in gas leaf blowers are some of the biggest polluters of our air, often releasing more hydrocarbon emissions than large vehicles – in a very short period of time. In addition, instead of nurturing our landscapes, they damage plants, remove beneficial topsoil and mulch, dry out and compact soil, diminish plant health and contribute to the spread of invasive species. That increases the use of fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides, all harmful to our local environment. As an alternative, there has been significant progress in the development of electric blowers, which are far less noisy and much better for the environment.
Please tell the Southampton Village Board to VOTE YES on the gas-powered leaf blower ban.
