It would only make complete sense for Sustain Charlotte and Autmow Robotic Mowing to partner up!
Achieving community sustainability is a complex challenge requiring a comprehensive and community-wide approach.
Sustain Charlotte is playing a critical role by bringing together citizens and organizations across our region who are doing great work but too often working in silos. Through their education initiatives and regular events, they are not only elevating awareness of our shared challenges, but also fostering collaborative solution-building among citizens, local governments, businesses, and other nonprofits around the region. No other organization is meeting this crucial need!
SUSTAIN CHARLOTTE: SAFE AND HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT
Smart growth strategies protect the air we all breathe, the water we all drink, and our world-famous tree canopy. Sprawling, car-centric development increases air pollution from our vehicles because it results in residents taking longer and more frequent trips by car. It also increases water pollution as more roads, parking lots and rooftops lead to more runoff into our streams and rivers. In fact, the Catawba River -- the source of our drinking water -- has twice been named one of the most endangered rivers in the nation due to the runoff caused by unsustainable development practices. These types of pollution can be reduced by locating housing, jobs, and stores nearer to each other (commonly called mixed-use development) and providing safe and convenient opportunities for residents to ride transit, walk, or bike between them.
Here at Autmow, we too are passionate about the environment! We use eco-friendly robotic lawn mowers to meet your sustainability goals by eliminating outdoor emissions. We believe this will encourage you to take an even bigger step of living a more eco-friendlier life. According to the EPA, one gas-powered lawn mower is equivalent to 11 cars running at highway speed. Robotic mowers are emission-free, low energy, and less fertilizer is needed, the cuttings are left as needed nutrition for the grass. Autonomous mowers use on average about $5.00 in electricity per month. The battery lifetime with average use is around five years and only cost about $150 to replace. All units come with a base station and low voltage cord which plugs into any standard outlet and the running costs depend on the size of your lawn, but are only $10-$50 per season!
So, we just cannot express how excited we are for this partnership with Sustain Charlotte! Keep in touch with us, we will be updating our projects with them.
