SynLawn product earns USDA certified biobased label

March 17, 2021

Synthetic grass manufacturer SynLawn has earned the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Certified Biobased Product label. The SynAugustine 347 organic infill system is now able to display a USDA label that highlights its percentage of biobased content.

“We are thankful for our continued partnership with the USDA, and appreciate their efforts to help support biobased products,” said George Neagle, executive vice president at SynLawn. “We are proud to provide our clients with more sustainable and eco-friendly artificial turf with a proprietary system that accounts for more than 70 percent renewable content.”

The following SynLawn products have earned the USDA Certified Biobased Product label:

  • SynAugustine 547 with 19 percent biobased content;
  • SynAugustine 547 Bio-Based System with 70 percent biobased content;
  • SynAugustine X47 Organic Infill System with 67 percent biobased content;
  • SynAugustine 347 Organic Infill System with 71 percent biobased content;
  • SynTipede 343 Organic Infill System with 72 percent biobased content;
  • SynTipede 321 Organic Infill System with 70 percent biobased content; and
  • SynPro 70 Organic Infill System with 72 percent biobased content.

Third-party verification for a product’s biobased content is administered through the USDA BioPreferred Program, an initiative created by the 2002 Farm Bill (and recently reauthorized by the 2018 Farm Bill). One of the goals of the BioPreferred Program is to increase the development, purchase and use of biobased products.

The USDA Certified Biobased Product label displays a product’s biobased content, which is the portion of a product that comes from a renewable source, such as plant, animal, marine or forestry feedstocks. Using renewable, biobased materials displaces the need for nonrenewable petroleum-based chemicals.

“We applaud SynLawn for earning the USDA Certified Biobased Product label,” said Vernell Thompson, USDA BioPreferred Program. “Products from SynLawn are contributing to an ever-expanding marketplace that adds value to renewable agriculture commodities, creates jobs in rural communities and decreases our reliance on petroleum.”
