Grass Clippings… The Real Story…
When is maintaining our lawns bad for our river? Believe it or not yard clippings such as grass and leaves are harmful to the environment. When grass is cut and blown into the street rains wash them into waterways such as rivers, lakes, and ponds. After that, the river’s decomposers eat and grow, stealing more and more oxygen from the river which eventually leads to the ecosystem’s fall.
- Leave them on your lawn. Grass clipping serve as a natural fertilizer, which saves you time and money.
- Put them in biodegradable bags or a cardboard box and send them to the landfill
- Put them in your compost bin
And NOT that:
- Blow grass clippings onto the street
- Burn them
- Throw them away in a plastic bag
