STC recognises Act Global

The Synthetic Turf Council has acknowledged Act Global’s commitment to reducing the use of virgin plastics and finding innovative ways to recycle plastics found in our oceans and shorelines. Working with supply partners, Act Global engineered an innovative way to take salvaged ocean plastic and synthesize it into a TPE infill. Sportsfields.info discussed one of these installations in this article.

A full-size multipurpose field was co-donated by Act Global and adidas to Miami Edison High School of Miami, Florida. Local partner, Burke Construction completed the installation in late January of 2020. Students set foot on the field for a 7 on 7 match during Super Bowl LIV Weekend, showing off their new surface made from recycled ocean plastic.

Act Global invests in maintaining environmentally sound products and business practices. They work with leading research and chemical firms to develop eco-friendly products such as infills, recyclable coatings, and other green innovations.
