EGO Named 2019 Environmental Partner of the Year
For pioneering the development of a lithium battery that makes lawn care more convenient and environmentally responsible, Chervon’s EGO has been named The Home Depot’s 2019 Environmental Partner of the Year.
The 56V ARC Lithium battery replaces heavy carbon-emitting combustible engines and is used across the EGO line of cordless outdoor power equipment. This includes blowers, mowers, chain saws, and hedge trimmers. EGO also helps prevent 17 million gallons of gas spilled annually by Americans filling lawn equipment.
“The working relationship with Chervon is great because we have the same goals: great quality products with less of an impact on the environment. Products that customers can afford, and products that customers want,” says Ron Jarvis, vice president of environmental innovation. The EGO line, which consistently receives 5-star ratings from customers, is available exclusively at The Home Depot.
Previous Environmental Partner of the Year winners include Kellogg Garden Products, Shaw Industries, and Trex.
“At The Home Depot, we believe in giving our customers the opportunity to positively impact the world by providing them better choices. We are grateful to suppliers like Chervon/EGO who make it possible to do the right thing, for our company, our customers and our planet,” says Ron.
