In China, Chengdu's officials hit
upon an easy solution to cheer up their city's appearance by painting the
grassy verges of the city's roads with a fluorescent green spray. According to
Top Green's website, the color lasts for ten to 14 weeks. Residents found the
dye also turned their shoes green when they walked across the grass patches. A
chemical solution called Top Green Turf Greening Agent is absolutely not
poisonous. It is just a green dye which they have been selling to the Chengdu
government for five or six years.
I believe that what the government is doing is
wrong and should not be supported by the locals. If the government wants to
create a better image of themselves to the world, they should have bought new
patches of grass and replant them. This may be a slow process but it shows the
world that they are eco friendly and are supporting the movement to save the
earth. Even thought they stated that the products do not harm the grasses, they
should not use it over excessively or else it could lead to consequences that
we did not even think anout.
