Manufacturer will be exclusive outdoor power equipment sponsor of Earth Day 2020.

Greenworks Tools, Charlotte, North Carolina, a provider of lithium ion battery-powered outdoor equipment for landscape professionals, has announced that it is partnering with Earth Day Network as the exclusive outdoor power equipment sponsor of Earth Day 2020.

With its established leadership in battery-powered technologies for lawn and landscape care, Greenworks proudly eliminates the carbon footprint and environmental hazards associated with gas-powered equipment. In support of Earth Day Network, Greenworks will pioneer 50 “acts of green” around the world to mark Earth Day’s 50th anniversary. Details on the planned initiatives and calendar of activities will be announced later this year.

“At Greenworks, we have taken on a mindset that every day is Earth Day,” says Mark Sewall, director of marketing of Greenworks Tools. “Whether it is snow removal equipment in the winter or string trimmers and leaf blowers throughout the growing season, by eliminating fossil fuels and providing a superior alternative to consumers and professional landscapers, we are doing our part year-round to help reduce the outdoor power equipment industry’s impact on our planet. We are excited to join Earth Day Network in helping to further our shared mission: to make Earth Day 2020 the most impactful Earth Day in history.”

“Humanity is at a pivotal moment in the battle to address the climate crisis, made more urgent by the extraordinary impacts that climate change is already starting to have on national security, the economy, and public health,” says Earth Day Network President Kathleen Rogers. “As we approach the 50th anniversary of Earth Day in 2020, we’re working to build a new generation of environmentalist activists, engaging millions of people worldwide. Fossil-fuel-free landscape care is one important step in building a post-carbon economy and meeting the needs of consumers who increasingly believe in using their purchasing power for good.”
