Huntington CALM, established in 2013, has been working with elected officials, public health and environmental experts, community representatives, manufacturers, and landscapers to foster a transition to cleaner, quieter, more sustainable practices.
Our focus is to develop and organize inclusive, local efforts that are directed toward phasing out obsolete, two-stroke gasoline powered lawn equipment. By replacing inefficient engines with clean, quiet battery-powered equipment, we can reduce toxic emissions and noise pollution in our communities as well as our carbon footprint.
We work with civic, governmental, scientific, educational, and commercial organizations nationwide to build alliances for these sustainable practices. We believe that Long Island should not only serve as an example of technological progress and environmental awareness, but should also set a new standard for ecological civic duty. This transition should be part of a Climate Smart Community program.
