LEAF BLOWERS

Often I can see in the campus men using leaf blowers, I think they cause some problems: -noxious emissions (2-stroke engines) -oil-consuming -they lift dust pollen and other materials from the ground into the air (could cause problem for asthmatic people) -noise! They should be replaced with some other environment-friendly and quieter alternatives, for instance: -rakes and brooms -electrical leaf blowers, or even better electrical leaf "vacuums" (some have even "mulching" functions) -lawn sweepers Some example are available in this webpage: http://www.cleanhouston.org/comments/river_oaks/alternatives.htm
