Recently, an article has circulated regarding an LA City Council Committees’ decision to move forward with a study to possibly ban artificial grass. The cornerstone of the concern raised by the article hinges on the presence of PFAS chemicals in artificial grass. The article assumes all manufacturers of artificial grass, including SmartGrass, utilize PFAS chemicals in their processes, raising concerns about potential health and environmental risks.

Understanding PFAS Concerns

PFAS (polyfluoroalkyl substances) are a group of man-made chemicals used in various industrial applications and consumer products. These chemicals are known for their resistance to water, oil, and heat, but they are also linked to various health concerns, including cancer, hormone disruption, and environmental pollution. The persistence of PFAS in the environment has led to increased scrutiny and efforts to eliminate their use in consumer products.

SmartGrass’s Proactive Approach

Upon careful examination of the facts and referencing an official report from TUV SUD certification and testing commissioned by SmartGrass’s manufacturer, it becomes clear that these claims as they relate to SmartGrass products are unfounded and misleading.

In synthetic grass used in SmartGrass products, this concern is decisively put to rest by the comprehensive PFAS Report (available at SmartGrass PFAS Report). The report meticulously details rigorous testing procedures and explicitly states that their artificial grass does not contain any PFAS chemicals.

Rigorous Testing and Quality Control

According to the report, there are stringent quality control measures throughout the production process. These measures include regular testing conducted by independent laboratories to ensure compliance with safety standards and regulations. The result is the absence of PFAS chemicals in SmartGrass products. This fact is not only a testament to SmartGrass’s commitment to transparency but also underscores their dedication to providing environmentally responsible synthetic grass solutions.

The testing procedures detailed in the PFAS Report include:

  • Regular Sample Testing: Samples from different batches of SmartGrass products are regularly tested to ensure no PFAS chemicals are present.
  • Independent Verification: The testing is conducted by independent, certified laboratories, ensuring unbiased and accurate results.
  • Compliance with Safety Standards: The production process complies with international safety standards, ensuring that the products are safe for consumers and the environment.


Commitment to Environmental Responsibility

Furthermore, it is crucial to highlight that SmartGrass has, from the beginning, recognized that PFAS chemicals are associated with various health concerns and environmental implications. By opting not to use a manufacturer that uses these substances in their processes, SmartGrass demonstrated a proactive approach to safeguarding the well-being of consumers and the environment alike. This stance aligns with the growing global consensus on the need to phase out and eliminate harmful chemicals from consumer products.

Addressing the Misinformation

In conclusion, the article’s implication that SmartGrass products, like others, incorporate PFAS chemicals in their artificial grass products is decisively rebutted by an independent PFAS Report. As consumers, it is essential to rely on accurate information and credible sources when evaluating product safety.

A Model for Responsible Corporate Practices

SmartGrass’s commitment to transparency and their proactive measures against harmful substances should be commended and serve as a model for responsible corporate practices in the artificial grass industry. Their dedication to quality and safety reflects a broader trend towards more sustainable and health-conscious consumer products.
