Quiet Communities took a step towards establishing its Quiet Campus Initiative by introducing The Green Station to Boston area universities. The Green Station is an R&D company developing zero emissions, high performance outdoor maintenance equipment and implementing Green Zones, emissions-free, quiet land areas for campuses, municipalities and counties. Grounds maintenance crews described the daily complaints they received from administrators, students, and faculty regarding noise, dust, and fumes from gas-powered equipment, especially in areas close to classrooms, administrative buildings, and dormitories. Benefits of zero emissions equipment include less pollution, less noise, and a healthier outdoor environment for students, workers, and others. Grounds maintenance crews may also benefit from fewer complaints!
