The True Costs of Artificial Turf

April 30 , 7:00 pm 8:00 pm EDT

Artificial turf is billed as an economical and environmental option by the industry; but is it really? Join us for a free webinar that investigates the true costs of artificial turf, focusing on Cornell University’s proposed $55M plan for installing additional synthetic playing fields. Discover the dangers of plastic grass, from toxic chemical exposure to ecological degradation, and explore sustainable alternatives and advocacy strategies.

Our stellar panel of six experts—including scientists, environmentalists, and a former university soccer coach—will analyze the life cycle, environmental justice, and public health impacts of artificial turf. After speaker presentations, you’ll have the opportunity to engage in dialogue and action planning.

From coast to coast, communities are facing similar challenges. By opposing Cornell’s artificial turf project, we both support our local community and draw attention to a nationwide movement to ban plastic grass installations. Register now to join the movement advocating for sound environmental practices and a sustainable future.
