Im so disappointed that this synthetic grass is taking over Maroubra and Malabar and pageqood. We are coastal areas and the idea that the run off of chemicals and micro plastics goes straight to our ocean is terrible.
I am also concerned that when my kids fall playing sport that are not being exposed to natural dirt. Scraping their knees on hot plastic and rubber.
And how will this be recycled if it needs to be replaced???? Very concerned.

The sporting field alongside Lindfield Learning Village had synthetic turf. The synthetic turf is covered with little black synthetic “ balls which get every where and in your shoes. It is not pleasant walking on and does nothing for the environment it should be natural turf .
