Litter from rubber crumb in playgrounds and synthetic sports fields

Publication by KIMO : Pitch In

Artificial grass is used on sports pitches all over Europe. Unfortunately, these pitches are often covered with a layer of rubber granules – a form of microplastic. Pitch In calls on owners, operators and users of plastic grass sports pitches to take action to tackle microplastic pollution. The Pitch In project is a collaboration between KIMO and Scottish Environmental NGO, Fidra.
