2015 – The Year to be Green!
As we wave goodbye to 2014 and enter into the first few weeks of January, many of us will have already made (and broken) countless New Year’s resolutions.
Your determination to go to the gym or quit smoking might not last beyond the end of January but if your resolution is simple to stick to and worth making then it might just last the year!
With 2014 confirmed to be the warmest year on record, the effects of global warming and damage to the planet are ever more evident. A brand new year is a great time to look to the future and commit to an eco-friendly New Year’s resolution – the results could end up having a huge effect on the future of our planet.
Believe it or not, you can achieve a ‘green’ 2015 simply by installing artificial grass, and here’s how…
Installing artificial grass in your garden can save a whopping 56,000 gallons of water per year. Even in prolonged periods of hot weather, artificial turf will stay green and lush without water, unlike natural grass. Your artificial lawn will eliminate the huge impact grass has on our water resources whilst saving you money on your monthly water bill.
Cut back on carbon footprint
By choosing artificial turf from AGD you are not only saving water but also eliminating harmful impacts on our planet.
By switching to artificial grass you can reduce:
- Dangerous chemical pesticides, herbicides & fertilisers used on lawns, which run into our ground water
- Harmful pollution released by petrol driven lawnmowers
- Grass clippings, which are among the biggest landfill contributors to the greenhouse effect.
Artificial turf is ideal for gardens of all sizes. Lawns large and small are green, gorgeous and maintenance-free for an astonishing 20 years. Our artificial grass is fully porous and drains like real grass. It’s flexible and follows the contours of your garden like real grass but, unlike real turf, it keeps its vibrant colour right through wet weather and long, hot, dry spells.
So why not make a resolution that’s worth sticking to this year – commit to be kinder to the environment this year with AGD.
We wish all our customers a very Happy New Year for 2015!
