This is funny if not downright hilarious from where I’m sitting. Google posted on its blog that the company rents goats to replace the lawnmower in cutting grass from the fields around its headquarters.
It’s their way of reducing carbon emission since mowers run on gasoline that produce pollutants. Google rents 200 goats from a company named California Grazing. The goats spend a week in eating the grass and fertilizing the field at the same time. I guess nobody had picnics on their lawn.
They said it costs the same as using lawnmowers. In this time of crisis, why don’t they just hire people to cut the grass manually? That way there will be no pollutants and they’d be providing jobs.
Who knows what Google would think of next.
