The Recycled Rubber Council and Safe Fields Alliance released an educational video that has addressed the concerns parents and government agencies have voiced over the past 16 months. "The Truth about Artificial Turf and Crumb Rubber" includes compelling interviews from parents, coaches, and scientists who have examined the available studies. The seven-minute video provides answers to the frequently asked questions parents and officials have regarding health and human safety considerations of crumb rubber infill in synthetic turf sports fields. The video is available at this link:
"Our staff and board of directors had the opportunity to review the new video before its release, and agreed to officially endorse it and circulate it to our members" said Synthetic Turf Council President Al Garver. "We have been addressing these issues with the same facts and conclusions, but this video is a new tool to communicate how concerned parents and public officials-at the local level-have investigated the science in the matter."
