Did you know that turf grass can be recycled?

You may have heard that artificial grass cannot be recycled, but this is actually not correct. Our products are made of polyethylene, polypropylene and latex; common materials that can always be recycled.
The recycling process involves separating the yarns from the backing. The yarn is melted and shaped into pellets that can then be extruded into new products such as other types of yarn, films or foams amongst others. The backing is in most cases used as fuel in cement ovens.
Thus, the FUNgrass products are made from materials that pass the new EU legislation REACH (the European Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals). We care about the environment so we do everything that is in our hands to minimize how our operations negatively affect it. This is the reason why our production process has been certified according to the environmental standard ISO 14 001.
