Clean Air Landscaping is Canada’s first truly “green” landscaping business. Utilizing solar energy to power all of its yard care equipment and providing a zero-emission lawn care option for residents and businesses has made Clean Air truly innovative. All mowers, trimmers and blowers are powered by a mobile solar trailer, and the company’s greenhouse gas emissions measured in at an astonishing 2.9 tonnes annually, 100-400% lower than traditional gasoline powered landscaping companies. Clean Air also uses lithium batteries to store solar energy, pulls its equipment using a Hybrid truck and was nominated as a Clean Smart Business for 2011.
Clean Air Landscaping is pioneering a new standard in ecologically friendly lawn and garden care, and stands as leader in the Capital Region for this industry. The business has also achieved recognition from the District of Saanich and was recently awarded for its sustainable business practices and green energy leadership. Franchising of the business will start in BC in the fall of 2011. The business services residential, strata and commercial clients.
