Why should I choose for GreenMatter products?
With GreenMatter, W&H Sports has taken the initiative to turn old artificial turf into new products and thus contribute to reducing the artificial turf waste mountain. GreenMatter is synonymous with: Green matters! The client has the guarantee that the products are made from old (worn out artificial grass pitches) and thus actively contribute to reducing the artificial grass waste mountain. The GreenMatter products are 100% recyclable at the end of their life cycle and are therefore truly circular. The production of GreenMatter products complies with ISO 9001 (quality), ISO 14001 (environment) and OHSAS 18001 (safety). For the processing of the GreenMatter products a social work facility is used.

Can I have my artificial grass mat recycled by you and have GreenMatter products made from it?
We do not recycle the artificial grass mats ourselves but we use the fibres from the old artificial grass pitches and make new products from them. In this way, we set a circular raw material in motion and make an active contribution to reducing the artificial turf waste mountain.
I'm looking for a GreenMatter product, but you don't offer it. Can you also make custom made products?
Yes, that is possible, but this is strongly dependent on the desired product, numbers, etc. In any case, we like to think along with you so that we can further expand our delivery program!
ESTC EMEA Synthetic Turf Council, formerly known as ESTO, is the industry association for the synthetic turf industry and has the vision to serve as a forum for the promotion, development, growth and advocacy of the synthetic turf industry. ESTC is the voice of the industry and wants to fulfil its role through close cooperation with all parties involved, i.e. members, end users, sports boards and legislators.
The differentiating factors of GreenMatter are: the cooperation with reliable partners, high quality & sustainable products and the fact that the GreenMatter products are 100% recyclable. This results in an infinite lifespan for the raw materials. By carefully designing the products, metal and plastic are separated in the system. This guarantees that all components can be recycled without additional pollution. Besides reducing the amount of waste, GreenMatter products have a negative CO2 Footprint of -1.7kg CO2 per kg due to the unique separation and production process. Research by an independent agency also shows that no worrisome substances are found in the production of GreenMatter.
By 2050, the sports sector should be 100% circular. But before that happens, the necessary steps need to be taken. It all starts with awareness. Change starts by you. In order to provide you with insights and information, we have developed an infographic. View the infographic here!
