What are PFAS

Last year, PFAS made headlines with multiple concerns about the environment and human health. This begs the question, what are PFAS? PFAS, short for perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, are manmade chemicals that have been used in everyday consumer products since the 1940s. PFAS degrade very slowly over time, earning the nickname "forever chemicals". If you can think of any products that are grease or water resistant, they more than likely contain or have contained PFAS in past manufacturing processes. Concerns include PFAS being resilient chemicals that do not break down and are transferrable. As PFAS leech into our soil, they become part of our food supply and in turn PFAS have been found in the blood of people and animals throughout the world.
Further concerns have recently arisen about PFAS being connected to adverse human health effects including certain types of cancer. As a result, many household consumer good companies that have been manufacturing their goods without PFAS have been updating their packaging wording to include “PFAS-FREE”. Goods such as pots and pans with non-stick surfaces, water-repellant outdoor clothing, baby car seats and strollers, furniture, carpet, textiles and so on.

Artificial Grass and PFAS

As a result of this, many plastic based products have come under scrutiny as a potential source of PFAS. In turn, Artificial Grass has recently gone under the microscope as well, particularly in California. Many artificial grass manufacturers continue to use PFAS and other potentially harmful chemicals in their products to increase durability of the product. SYNLawn, however, remains committed to ensuring environmental sustainability and human health and has eliminated any use of PFAS or other harmful chemicals in its products.
