Industry Voluntarily Agrees to Reduce Lead in Artificial Turf Yarns, Set Standards

“The Synthetic Turf Council fully supports the efforts by the CPSC, EPA, and CDC to eliminate lead in all products where feasible,” says Rick Doyle, President of the Association. 


“With this commitment, we are voluntarily agreeing to reduce lead levels in accordance with the proposed Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008, and to the same strict standards Congress is likely to impose on the children’s toy industry.”
