Huntington CALM (Clean Alternative Landscaping Methods) provides education and outreach on the health and environmental impacts associated with highly polluting, noisy landscape equipment. Our mission is to move the commercial landscape industry to zero emission, quiet, sustainable practices, starting with the elimination of the highly polluting two-stroke engine gas leaf blower. We offer positive solutions that protect the health of families, workers, and our environment.
NEW: The Long Island chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics has released an open letter that “strongly supports legislation which would prohibit the use of gas-powered leaf blowers from May 1 to September 30.” Read the statement here.
UPDATE: The town supervisor of Huntington NY, Chad Lupinacci, has asked that “residents and landscapers refrain from gas-powered and other types of leaf blower use during the Coronavirus pandemic.”
