Sustainable Wellesley, Wellesley’s Natural Resources Commission and the town’s Sustainable Energy Committee are behind an online discussion that will take place on Tuesday, July 28 from 1-2pm on the topic of what to do about gas-powered leaf blowers. There’s a move afoot to encourage a transition from gas-powered to electric to help reduce noise and pollution.
Taking part in the discussion will be:
- Jamie Banks, founder of Quiet Communities
- Dan Mabe, founder of American Green Zone Alliance
- Brendan McCue, Strategic Sourcing Manager at the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ Operational Services Division
- David Pinsonneault, Public Works Director for the Town of Lexington, which has begun a transition from gas- to electric-powered gear
