NewGrass® Takes Being Green to a New LevelWritten by Linda Kelly
NewGrass® stands alone in the synthetic grass industry in its combination of pricing, quality, service and commitment to being 100% eco-friendly. If you’re considering an artificial lawn application, NewGrass will save time and money today and in the long run … in addition to aiding water conservation, reducing the use of pesticides and helping create a healthier environment. NewGrass is a popular choice for outdoor spaces where children play because it’s eco-friendly and made from recyclable materials, helping to conserve water and eliminate fertilizer and pesticides, therefore avoiding chemical exposure for kids. The eco-friendly synthetic grass is often used in parks, schools, backyards and playgrounds, and earlier in 2011, NewGrass was selected by the NFL and Gatorade for the Super Bowl NFL Junior Training Camp. As a synthetic turf, NewGrass can be installed permanently or can be installed temporarily for multipurpose areas. In a recent installation in Vail Colorado, an area used as an ice skating rink in the winter was converted to NewGrass for other uses in the summer. NewGrass is dedicated to being 100% eco-friendly – made with renewable and recycled resources, and totally recyclable. The EnviroCelTM backing on NewGrass replaces over 90 percent of the petroleum-based polymers found on previous generations with bio-based compounds that are derived from domestically-grown soybeans. On the ground, the backing offers greatly improved drainage, resulting in longer product lifespan. It also means faster and more consistent drainage, which is better for the aggregate base underneath a NewGrass installation, as well as for the surrounding landscaping. The backing of NewGrass also incorporates post-consumer PET plastic from soft drink and water bottles. That makes it – and the entire product – 100 percent recyclable. NewGrass believes that being environmentally conscious means more than conserving water. It means being 100 percent eco-friendly … in their products and in their corporate responsibilities. That commitment is one reason NewGrass was accepted as an Ally in the EPA GreenScapes Program. And NewGrass maintains a Carbon-Offset Pledge. For every square foot of NewGrass installed, the folks at NewGrass make a donation to the Carbonfund.org Foundation, doing their part to contribute to the fight against climate change. These contributions further support their commitment to a safer, greener environment and the reduction of harmful carbon dioxide emissions. The donations to Carbonfund.org help climate change education, carbon offsets and reductions, and public outreach. They also help NewGrass reduce its carbon footprint. So, if it’s time to consider a switch to high-quality, environmentally-conscious synthetic turf, contact NewGrass for your estimate today.
