California Town Bans Fake Lawns

MAINE–(ENEWSPF)–November 25, 2011.  One of the few issues I can agree on with folks on both sides of the organic vs. synthetic chemical lawn debate is this: Artificial grass has no place in our society.

Giant petroleum-based blankets that will never biodegrade in anyone’s lifetime, artificial lawns emit all sorts of toxins, reflect heat that increases the earth’s temperature and are generally an environmental nightmare.

One California town apparently agrees, having banned fake lawns in recent legislation: http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/314592
