I ordered four (4) additional yard signs with this message. If you would like one of them for your own yard, please feel free to drop by 946 Waverly Way (intersection with Hurt Street) and take one from my porch, where I am leaving them. First come, first served. One per customer. While supplies last. Gratis. (If you take the last one, feel free to shoot me an email letting me know, and I will update this blog post to let everyone know that all the signs have found homes.)
Washington, D.C., recently enacted a ban on gas-powered leaf blowers, to take full effect by 2022. The journalist James Fallows and his wife Deb were among a small group of neighborhood activists who started working toward this in 2015. You can read here a short article by Fallows at The Atlantic with links to additional information.
