Home Depot commits to cut outdoor power tool emissions

The Home Depot wants to cut emissions from its outdoor power equipment. The retailer expects that by the end of 2028, more than 85 percent of its sales in both Canada and the U.S. of push lawn mowers and handheld outdoor equipment, like leaf blowers and trimmers, will run on rechargeable battery technology instead of gas.

To reach this goal, Home Depot will work with brands such as Ryobi, Milwaukee, Makita, and DeWalt.
