"There is really something wrong" (video)

While you are out and about this weekend, especially those parents with kids on one or more of our artifical turf fields, this 20 minute video is a must view.

Patti Wood, Executive Director of non-profit Grassroots Environmental Education and visiting scholar at Adelphi University explains how synthetic turf and its components can affect children's health. This video is adapted from a presentation given in Ramapo, New York on May 14, 2015. More information on synthetic turf is available at the Grassroots website,
