Artficial Turf

Pin It

Artificial turf aims to address some difficult conditions such as:

  • heavy athletic field use and
  • waiting for fields to dry out after rain and snow

But it also has unintended consequences, including:

  • much higher field temperatures than grass on hot days
  • multiple chemicals of known and potential concern including PFAS, the "forever chemicals" that migrate into soil and water and harm human as well as environmental health
  • microplastic pollution
  • end of life recycling issues
