I love Mondo Turf and Neil Codell!
#2 Jun 4, 2008
I attended Niles East High School some 30+ years ago, and amazingly enough, we did manage a sports program back then without having an expensive, plastic fieid that's horrible in many ways for our environment, will need repeated replacement and landfill disposal, and is unproven in terms of the potential for long-term health risks to the kids that play on it. The nation's love affair with artificial turf is mind-boggling. In order to serve the relatively small contingent of people that will use them, the rest of us and the environment will take the hit in terms of increased greenhous gas production, urban heat island effect, and possibly increased chronic illness from years of exposure. When will people wake up?
