stop sealing the ground with plastic grass

stop sealing the ground with plastic grass

What change do you want to make now to address the climate change crisis? Stop the production of plastic grass What do you need to make this change? Legislation


I like this in principle, if it is proven that plastic from plastic grass actually enters the ground / is damaging

Also helps prevent flooding in cities

because as the grass wears the microplastic enters the water courses rather like car tyres wear. The beads then enter the soil and sea, and, therefore, the food chain.

Is there evidence to suggest this actually has any impact on the environment? I have astroturf and if it was banned i'd simply concrete over my garden which would presumably be worse for wildlife/health
