Ban leaf blowers sign now

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT LEAF BLOWER MANUFACTURERS!
They are spending thousands of dollars to influence the workers, who operate leaf blowers. They are saying that those who oppose leaf blowers are insulting the intelligence of the workers. They, the manufacturers, are the ones who are insulting the workers with their propaganda. They care only about selling leaf blowers, no matter how it affects the health of the people subjected to the small particles blown into the air. They are jeopradising the lives of the workers who are exposed to it daily.

· Toxic exhaust fumes and emissions are created by gas-powered leaf blowers.
Exhaust pollution per leaf blower per hour is the equivalent of the amount of smog
from 17 cars driven one hour and is localized in the area of blower usage.
· The high-velocity air jets used in blowing leaves whip up dust and pollutants.
The particulate matter (PM) swept into the air by blowing leaves is composed of dust,
fecal matter, pesticides, fungi, chemicals, fertilizers, spores, and street dirt which
consists of lead and organic and elemental carbon. About five pounds of PM per leaf
blower per hour are swept into the air and take hours to settle.
· The quantity of pollution products that are injected into county air.
The total amount of pollutants injected into the environment by blower usage in the
county is significant. The ARB calculates that leaf blowers inject 2.11 tons of
combustion pollutants per day into Orange County air. Leaf blowers in the County
sweep twenty tons per day of small size particulate matter into the air.
· Blower engines generate high noise levels.
Gasoline-powered leaf blower noise is a danger to the health of the blower operator
and an annoyance to the non-consenting citizens in the area of usage.
