About the Synthetic Turf Council

The Legitimate Resource for Industry Information

Founded in 2003, the Synthetic Turf Council is a 501(c)6 non-profit trade association dedicated to serving as a resource for trustworthy information about synthetic turf. Our objective is to encourage, promote and facilitate better understanding among all parties involved in the manufacture, selection, delivery and use of today's synthetic turf systems. To that end, we make every attempt to dispense information that is neutral, objective and validated by independent, science-based, current and credible research.

As an action-oriented organization, we promote high standards and high quality in our industry through a respected member certification program and strict code of ethics. Our semi-annual membership meetings provide a forum for cooperative learning and issue resolution, while outreach initiatives encourage cooperative relationships between industry and end-user organizations.
