PRLog - Jun. 6, 2012 - AUSTIN, Texas -- ACT Global Sports is pleased to announce an upcoming appearance on national television show “Fox & Friends” on June 7, 2012 to discuss the environmental benefits of using artificial grass for landscaping. The segment will air at 6 a.m. EST (check your local listings) and will be available for viewing on www.foxandfriends.com following the live broadcast.
The World Health Organization says that water scarcity affects one in three people on every continent. According to the Clean Water America Alliance, a mild winter has caused 48 of 50 states to be considered abnormally dry or having drought conditions. Some areas have imposed watering restrictions, which limit the number of times home and business owners can water their grass.
Jennifer Alt, marketing coordinator at ACT Global, said that synthetic turf is a solution to help conserve valuable drinking water. Artificial grass saves about six billion gallons of water annually.
“Synthetic lawns are a perfect alternative to natural grass in dry climates,” said Alt. “They require no mowing or watering and will remain green and plush year round.”
ACT Global’s Xtreme Lawn synthetic grass products are durable and multi-functional, used for landscaping, playgrounds, residential areas, businesses, pet areas, concerts and more.
Synthetic lawns eliminate the chore of ongoing lawn maintenance, and reduce air pollution from gas-powered lawn equipment. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), these engines can emit carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides. Artificial turf also removes about one billion pounds of fertilizers and pesticides annually, and can help control seasonal allergies.
Alt encourages homeowners associations and municipalities to approve the use of synthetic turf in their local communities. Several municipalities currently offer rebates and incentives due to the numerous water savings.
