How Green is Artificial Turf?

Artificial Grass: The Environmental Benefits

Concern for the well-being of our environment has never been greater. The alarming effects of climate change are making themselves clear across the world. We all have a responsibility look at how we reduce the impact we have on the planet.

At Nomow, we take our environmental responsibilities seriously. We’re striving to find new ways to reduce our carbon footprint and provide products that have environmental benefits.

No Water

Water is one of the world’s most precious resources and set to become more so as climate change progresses. Nomow artificial turf, unlike natural grass, doesn’t need watering. It stays green and lush throughout extreme weather conditions. In America, grants are available to householders installing water-saving artificial grass.

No Pesticides

Nomow doesn’t need fertilisers, pesticides or weed killers. There’s no need for harmful chemicals that can find their way into our rivers and water courses.

No Mowing

Nomow doesn’t need mowing. There’s no need for petrol-driven lawn mowers or gardeners’ maintenance vans. And there are no grass clippings that produce methane and require disposal to landfill sites.

No Waste

We also recycle our grass off-cuts using them in other areas like footpaths. Nothing is wasted.

Business Practices

As a business, we follow efficient working practices wherever we can. We plan multiple site visits to reduce our fleet’s use of fuel. Our offices are run in energy efficient ways. Our brochures and promotional materials are made from paper from sustainable sources.

But What About Sustainability?

When it comes to sustainability, we’re fully aware there’s more work to do. Research is underway into bio polymer technology capable of creating artificial grass that can be recycled.

Bio Polymer Technology

We’re closely in touch with academics and partners as they progress the development of next generation products. These are innovations that are sustainable as well as technologically advanced.
