My six-year-old son, Jakob, didn't like the loud noise of the lawn mower so he really wanted a push mower. We bought a push mower without even thinking about the environment. Now I use it all the time and rarely have to use the gas mower all summer long. It's environmentally friendly and is very good exercise. Composting is also a great way to reduce the garbage taken to the landfill sites. It is great for gardens. Also use a rain barrel for watering your garden. This summer I would like to invest in some solar lights for the deck and garden.
