It's time for change
Single polymer, 100% circular: Game-changing ONE-DNATM artificial grass is here
Futureproofing the artificial grass marketplace means facing the challenges of circularity and recyclability head on. The pioneers in this field at Evergreens UK Group are again leading the march forward, as they reveal their UK-exclusive collaboration with LimeGreen® and the launch of ONE-DNA™ artificial grass for 2023.
Fully circular, single polymer, single “DNA” artificial grass is on its way. Its launch makes an important statement and is a conversation starter for those in the development, manufacture, supply, installation and recycling of artificial grass. Rocking the market and product perceptions, this is one more bold, innovative move by Evergreens UK and forms just one step in their Evergreener™ sustainability initiative.
Made from just one raw material, the new ONE-DNA™ formula has a significantly lower carbon footprint, using less energy in production and hitting the ultimate goal in recyclability when cleaned at ‘end of life’: 100%. A single polymer means a single recycling method at a single recycling facility, using less energy. This unique formulation means clean single DNA lawns can be recycled at local facilities and reused for artificial grass or similar value products, time and time again. Any cut waste from the new installation can go straight back to the manufacturer to be recycled and reused afresh.
More importantly, its availability starts the conversation about circularity and recycling of high value plastics with a view to opening up pathways that, until now, simply do not exist.
Evergreens UK Group Sales and Marketing Director Andy Driver is eager to extend the company’s sustainability commitment and is formulating a number of additional initiatives moving forward. “We are really excited to be able to share our plans for products with 100% circularity, launching in collaboration with partners LimeGreen®. This new range resolves end-of-life issues and opens a whole new dialogue across the industry. But we acknowledge there is more to be done – this is just the first step in our mission for change as part of our Evergreener™ programme for 2023.”
LimeGreen® have been involved in the artificial grass market since 2006, developing solutions for gardens, MUGA pitches and playgrounds. The company collaborates with manufacturers to engineer and develop fully circular artificial grass products and has opened the dialogue with recycling facilities to develop more sustainable processes for end-of-life grass disposal and upcycling.
Make the change.
