You don’t have to wonder if Strauser Nature’s Helpers landscape business prioritizes the environment. It’s in the name and it’s in the tagline: Healthier landscapes, healthier future.
“We feel that we have a very big responsibility as a company and as an industry as a whole to do whatever we can to make a greener world and propane really works well with that,” says Zech Strauser, owner of the Pennsylvania company.
Strauser Nature’s Helpers operates 75 percent of its mower fleet on propane, uses natural-based lawn treatments, and designs water-efficient landscapes in an effort to create clean and healthy green spaces for its customers to enjoy.
Propane fits into the company’s sustainability plan because it’s listed as an approved clean alternative fuel under the Clean Air Act of 1990 and has a lower carbon footprint than conventional gasoline and diesel fuel.
It’s why today the fuel transports 1.2 million children to and from school, why national parks like Acadia and Mammoth Cave use it to transport visitors and preserve the land, and why nearly 12 million U.S. households depend on it for water heating, clothes drying, cooking, backup power, and other applications.
It’s fuel that people and businesses feel good about using to perform work in a cleaner way while being fiscally responsible stewards of theirs and taxpayers’ money.
Strauser Nature’s Helpers Field Manager Chris Miller is proud to work for a business that helps preserve the planet for the next generation.
“My daughter is the hugest part of my life. Anything I can do to make the future be cleaner and better, I’m definitely interested in and I definitely look to take steps to do so,” he says.
