NewGrass® believes that being environmentally conscious means more than conserving water. It means being 100 percent eco-friendly … in our products and in our corporate responsibilities. That commitment is one reason NewGrass® was accepted as an Ally in the EPA GreenScapes Program.
NewGrass® Takes Being Green to a
NewGrass® is dedicated to being 100% eco-friendly – from the way our products are manufactured to the way they are recycled many years later.
Made with Renewable and Recycled Resources; Totally Recyclable
The 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 – a renewable resource!
On the ground, our backing offers greatly improved drainage. This results in longer life for the backing, the blades and any infill. 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.
The NewGrass® Carbon-Offset Pledge
For every square foot of NewGrass® installed, we make a donation to the Carbon Fund, a non-profit organization that is leading the fight against global-warming climate change.
These contributions further support our commitment to a safer, greener environment and the reduction of harmful carbon dioxide emissions. Our donations help the Carbon Fund promote climate change education, carbon offsets and reductions, and public outreach. They also help NewGrass® reduce its carbon footprint.
In addition, every square foot of NewGrass® that is manufactured helps reduce carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Why? Because every NewGrass® installation means increased domestic soybean production, which in turn improves air quality by consuming carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
