Friends of Norman Griffiths Oval - Natural Turf Alliance started this petition to Rob Stokes (NSW Minister for Planning and Public Spaces)

DON’T install synthetic turf on ovals that is HOTTER THAN BITUMEN in summer.

DON’T send microplastics, pollution and rubber/cork infill into our waterways and oceans every time it rains or when the synthetic turf is cleaned.

DON’T cover up seeds and worms on ovals that are food for birds.

DON’T create MOUNTAINS OF PLASTIC TURF WASTE that is difficult to recycle. The turf needs replacing every 8-10 years.

THERE ARE UPDATED NATURAL GRASS ALTERNATIVES THAT WORK EFFECTIVELY:

* Cheaper
* Sustainable
* Hard-wearing
* Multi-purpose sports and recreation

COUNCILS - PLEASE DON'T DO THIS!

SUPPORT SYDNEY'S NATURAL GREEN SPACES
