Mark your calendars! Join DCEN on Friday, June 2nd, at Noon!

How a DC Council Leaf Blower Bill Can Help Protect the Health of DC Families!

On April 4th, Councilmember Mary Cheh introduced Bill 22-0234, the “Leaf Blower Regulation Amendment Act of 2017.” This bill’s intent is to “amend the District of Columbia Municipal Regulations to prohibit the sale and use of gasoline-powered leaf blowers in the District of Columbia by January 1, 2022.” This bill was co-sponsored by Councilmembers Allen, Grosso, McDuffie, and Bonds.

On June 2nd at NOON, join the DC Environmental Network for our monthly networking opportunity. We will focus on Councilmember Cheh’s bill, and other local and national efforts, to phase out noisy, polluting two-stroke gas engines (leaf blowers) in the United States. RSVP HERE!

This event will be held at the offices of Friends of the Earth and Green Cross International, 1101 15th Street NW, 11th Floor. All are welcome. RSVP HERE!

Our panel will include representatives from Quiet Clean D.C., a volunteer public health non-profit group based in Washington DC. From their website:

Look forward to seeing you on June 2nd.
