The coconut tree is known as a Tree of Life for its versatility. The saturated fat in coconut meat helps support the immune system, helps reduce the risk of heart disease and helps destroy pathogenic microorganisms. Coconut oil can be classified as a superfood and can even nourish your hair and skin! Did you know coconut water is a good source of fiber and electrolytes? Electrolytes regulate nerve and muscle function, and we all know, hydrates the body. We also all know that hydration is important while playing sports especially when playing on synthetic turf due to higher surface temperatures.
In case you didn’t already know, coconut fibers are a main ingredient in Greenplay® organic infill. Coconut fiber is strongly hygroscopic and readily absorbs moisture. It slowly releases this moisture keeping turf temperatures low. The mandate at Greenplay® Organics is to improve the benefits of synthetic turf by introducing systems utilizing organics as the synthetic turf infill of choice to better integrate with the natural environment. As far as artificial grass infills go, you can’t get any closer to nature than this! The unique coconut fibers used in Greenplay® Corkonut® are specially sourced from our team partner growers. This food source material is pesticide free and retains moisture for longer periods of time. This means your artificial grass field will stay cooler longer.
We have tapped into the coconut tree’s gifts through use of coconut fibers as part of Greenplay’s® natural, organic synthetic turf infill. When blended with our pure cork the result is an extremely stable sports surface rivaled only by natural grass. Consistency of play is maximized and fly out is virtually eliminated.
Artificial turf continues to be the choice of most schools and municipalities. The utilizing of Greenplay® as the natural choice of infill is providing communities with safe synthetic turf fields that are closer to nature and promote healthy living. Thanks to the Tree of Life!
