Selecting Athletic Turf You Can Feel Good About

Oct 28 2020 | 01:00pm - 02:00pm ET

When choosing turf for your athletic field or recreation area, choices go far beyond synthetic turf versus natural grass. Even if health and the environment are at the forefront of the decision-making process, it can be difficult to identify safer options.

HBN has developed a simple Hazard Spectrum comparing the most common types of turf and infills to help you make an informed decision you can feel good about. Join HBN Materials Researcher Ryan Johnson and Lindsey Pollard of the Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI) at UMass Lowell for an informative webinar to learn about our research and guidelines.
