How NewGrass is Solving Today’s Water Problem
November 13, 2015
As efforts continue to manage water resources in the midst of this fourth year of the worst drought on record, artificial grass, NewGrass®, is one of the easiest way to eliminate a huge portion of your monthly water consumption. This is a hard fact; the numbers don’t lie.
As Americans, we use a lot of water…no doubt far too much on our lawns. In fact, it has been estimated that our water footprint as a country is nearly double the world’s yearly average. To put it in perspective: the United States Geological Survey, we collectively use an average of 410 billion gallons of water, per day. Yikes!
Now think of ways that you personally can do your part to lower this astronomical amount of daily water consumption. Is your lawn (literally) sucking everything dry each day? If you’re like the majority of Americans, yes. We love our real green lawns. Maybe artificial grass will become a more realistic option after taking a look at these facts:
-According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, it is estimated that each square foot of natural grass requires 55 gallons of water per year.
–The Synthetic Turf Council website says that the average lawn is approximately 1,800 square feet.
-NewGrass ® artificial grass requires no water at all to stay green and healthy-looking, summer through winter.
-By replacing an 1,800 square foot lawn with NewGrass ® artificial grass, you can reduce your water consumption by 99,000 gallons of water every year! (How many dollars off your water bill does that equate to?!)
It’s pretty simple: our planet has limited resources and we’re addicted to carelessly using precious things like water to keep our lawns looking nice. Taking clean, accessible water in abundance for granted is an easy way to draw out this lengthy water crisis longer than necessary. Artificial grass from NewGrass ® is one product that is working to solve the water crisis happening in our country. Do your part, switch to environmentally-friendly NewGrass ®.
