Home Depot names EGO as Environmental Partner of the Year

By HBSDealer Staff - 01/02/2020
The Home Depot has named Chervon’s EGO brand of outdoor power equipment products as its 2019 Environmental Partner of the Year.

The award was given to Chevron EGO for pioneering the development of a lithium battery that makes lawn care more convenient and environmentally responsible, the retailer said.

The EGO 110 MPH 530 CFM Variable-Speed Turbo 56-Volt Lithium-ion Cordless Electric Blower.

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.  The Home Depot also said that EGO 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,” said Ron Jarvis, vice president of environmental innovation.

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,” Jarvis said.
