How "GREEN" Are We?
ORGANO-LAWN'S COMMITMENT TO ORGANIC LAWN CARE AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Taking responsibility for our environment and for our actions is important, and we at Organo-Lawn echo this sentiment. Not only are we reducing the use of dangerous pesticides and fertilizers on lawns and trees but we also are reducing our impact with our business practices. Below you will find a few of the ways that Organo-Lawn is committed to maintaining a healthy and sustainable relationship with our environment.
- Biodiesel Oil Fueled Trucks
Our vehicles have the capability to run on B100 biodiesel and whenever available we purchase and use B100 biodiesel. By using biodiesel we are lowering our dependency on fossil fuels.
- Fuel SponsorsThe following restaurants generously donate their used vegetable oil to be cleaned and turned into biodiesel. Please support our effort in using a waste product to power vehicles by supporting their businesses.

- High Efficiency LightingOur shop is illuminated by highly efficient, low wattage compact florescent light and LED lightbulbs. This not only reduces our energy consumption, but also eliminates the waste created by burned out bulbs. Also our shop and office is wrapped in energy efficient windows, allowing us to operate under the full light of the sun creating less need for electrical light.

- Wind Power
We have been purchasing wind energy from Xcel energy since 2004. This energy powers 100% of our shop and office.
- Recycled Materials
When we build equipment we use as much recycled and reclaimed materials as possible. We use recycled paper to print our invoices and drop sheets. We also have a very successful recycling program where we recycle all of our paper waste products and commingled container products.
- Planting Trees
Every year Organo-Lawn plants at least 4 new trees at our office. Planting a tree is an easy way to reduce the carbon footprint. Each tree we plant will help combat the carbon dioxide we produce with the use of our small engines. It is our duty to make sure we are limiting the negative impact that our daily operations make on the environment.
“The best time to plant a tree was 30 years ago; the second best time is now!”
Organo-Lawn understands that these steps are very small in comparison to what can be done. Rest assured we are continuing to grow and are always looking at ways to become even more sustainable. We are looking at installing Solar Power to allow us to go "off Grid” and hope to be off grid shortly. We do a lot to create as sustainable an environment as possible, but we also acknowledge that there is much more work to be done. We welcome your feedback in order to help create a more sustainable Organo-Lawn in the future. Organo-Lawn is the leading lawn and tree care company in the Boulder and Fort Collins area.
