SYNLawn Orlando is widely known for its efforts to improve the local artificial grass industry with sustainable alternatives to traditional grass in Orlando, FL. We have helped innovate the market with more than 50 years of instilled research and development from SYNLawn and continue to find new ways to disrupt the competition in Orlando. Beyond our eco-friendly efforts, we are now one of the only turf suppliers in our area to provide artificial turf that is manufactured PFAS-free!
What Are PFAS?
PFAS are a classification of man-made compounds also known as “forever chemicals.” These chemicals are known for their extreme persistence in the environment and can last for hundreds of years, as they are capable of resisting being broken down. These chemicals are also the culprits for several serious health risks. These impacts can include liver and thyroid problems, development issues, metabolism disruption, neurotoxicity, immunotoxicity, and so many more. Unfortunately, these chemicals can be found all around us in many of the common items found in our households; microwavable popcorn bags, nail polish, non-stick cookware, dental floss, toilet paper, and carpeting are just a few on the growing list.
SYNLawn and SportGroup, its parent company, are incredibly focused on environmentally sustainable goods and services. As the first company to create sports surfaces that have earned an ESG grade (Environmental, Social, and Governance), we understand this is because we have a responsibility to promote eco-friendly synthetic turf. We are dedicated to providing the highest-quality and highest-performing artificial turf that can last a lifetime with minimal effort. We do this by implementing time, money, and attention into our in-house manufacturing process. We continue to monitor and preserve the quality of our turf as a result of our recognition of the risks surrounding “forever chemicals.”
What Is Orlando, FL, Artificial Grass from SYNLawn Made Of?
Orlando artificial turf from SYNLawn is the first and only plant-based turf available on the local market today. This is thanks to our long-lasting and ever-growing relationship with American soy farmers. With their help, we can reduce significant amounts of petroleum-based components from our manufacturing process. Since 2008, we have worked with them to explore the possibilities of bio-based turf and meet the growing demand for sustainable products.
Traditional artificial grass can sometimes include a rubber crumb infill. These rubber crumbs are another source of PFAS and can pose a health risk to pets and children. At SYNLawn Orlando, we never utilize rubber crumbs. Instead, we offer the Envirofill® acrylic sand infill. Envriofill® is an eco-friendly alternative to rubber that helps turf fibers remain in a traditional upright position. It can also reduce and control odors that are caused by the ammonia found in pet waste.
