Greenworks 50 Acts of Green Earth Day Challenge
Greenworks Tools is celebrating environmental action today with its partner Earth Day Network! In support of Earth Day Network, Greenworks has pioneered the Green Generation. Green Generation is a national grassroots movement that champions environmental stewardship in line with Greenworks’ own long-standing corporate culture. As a part of the Green Generation and Earth Day, the Greenworks 50 Acts of Green Earth Day Challenge encourages members to pledge and complete 50 Acts of Green to mark Earth Day’s 50th Anniversary. Since the program’s introduction, in 2019, more than 250,000 people have taken the pledge to participate.
Greenworks is a leader in battery-powered technologies for lawn and landscape care. They have proudly contributed to reducing the carbon footprint and environmental hazards associated with gas-powered equipment.
EPA Facts about the harmful impact of gas-powered lawn gear*:
- A single gas-powered walk-behind lawn mower emits the same amount of harmful emissions as eight cars operating for the same period of time.
- Gas-powered riding lawn mowers emit as much pollution as thirty-four cars operating for the same period of time.
- 17 million gallons of fuel are spilled into the ground every year during the refueling of gas-powered lawn and garden equipment. That’s 50% more than was spilled by the Exxon Valdez.

“While today’s digital celebration is different than the original 50th Anniversary of Earth Day that we all envisioned, it is important to recognize that even from our homes, during these unprecedented times, we can all do our part to improve the world that we live in. By choosing Greenworks’ lithium technology as an alternative to gas, so many consumers are leading the charge to eliminate fossil fuels while ensuring powerful, efficient performance of their outdoor equipment. Today and every day, we’re proud to support Earth Day Network in its mission to make the world a better place for future generations.”
