Soy-Biobased Grassmaker Partners for Pets

SYNLawn, a leader in soy-biobased artificial grass, has teamed up with the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) International to offer turf to pet shelters, a discount to homeowners with a rescue pet, and sponsor a military pet rescue.

“We are pleased that our collaboration with the SPCA International allows us to donate premium synthetic grass in rescue shelters for pets that haven’t always been in friendly environments,” said George Neagle, SYNLawn’s vice president of sales and marketing. “The partnership will help raise much-needed funds for pet rescue and adoption.”

America’s energy security benefits because SYNLawn artificial grass is made with a U.S. soy-based backing called BioCel™ manufactured by Universal Textile Technologies. BioCel uses soy-based polyol technology developed with support from the soybean checkoff. Based on UL third-party verification, soybean oil displaces 60 percent of the petroleum-based polyurethane in BioCel. Using soy in industrial products like SYNLawn artificial grass helps to create new markets for U.S. soybeans and jobs here at home.
