Welsh government to ban artificial lawns

Artificial lawns could be banned in Wales due to its damaging impact on the environment, a Welsh government minister has said. Julie James, Wales's climate change minister, said fake grass surfaces had a "very bad effect" on sustainability. https://news-sky-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/news.sky.com/story/amp/artificial-lawns-could-be-banned-in-wales-minister-says-12898818

          Nothing is so significant of the artificial lawns,they might seem appealing but they're a lurking danger to the environment.

                Artificial grass contributes to global warming by absorbing significantly more radiation than living grass.

                          Needless to say that most things perform better in their natural set up.

                            This is a great ban especially when one removes a natural lawn to install an artificial one. They have an aesthetic quality but very dangerous to the environment just as the article put it 'artificial grass contributes to global warming by absorbing more radiation than living grass, displacing living plants that could remove carbon dioxide'. By all means ban it and hopefully other countries can follow suit.
