When you mention the word synthetic, ecologically friendly isn't exactly the first thing that comes to mind. Can synthetic grass really be ecologically friendly? The answer is yes, and ProGreen™ offers the most economically and ecologically sensible synthetic grass on the market. Our triple-layered backings are formulated using natural,renewable resources that are completely recyclable and will contribute to the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED point totals.
We also offer Organafill, ProGreen's™ proprietary composite of organic and inorganic material that is coated with an anti-microbial agent that meets both health and safety standards for the industry. Organafill provides an environmentally-friendly, biologically-safe alternative to recycled-tire rubber and/or sand as an in-fill for synthetic turf. Organafill, as an infill alternative, eliminates possible exposure to carcinogens, respiratory exposure to toxic or irritant particulate from rubber dust or silica-sand, ingestion of toxic chemicals by children, as well as run-off contamination to the aquifer by the afforementioned in-fill materials. Additionally, every granule of Organafill is encapsulated with an effective, durable, non-chemical, EPA registered anti-microbial agent which protects against and prevents the growth of bacteria, fungi and mold.
