Fancy flipping a tile?

Queeny de Haan

The Dutch national tile flipping championships have started again. This means that local authorities throughout the Netherlands encourage their residents to replace grey by green; out with the tile, in with the green!

De campaign NC Tile flipping was started to get as many people as possible to plant more green. The local authority with the highest TPI, or ‘flipped Tiles Per Inhabitant’, is rewarded with the prestigious Golden Tile!

Besides this coveted award, green gardens also have a positive effect on biodiversity and the natural balance on earth. Moreover, green benefits water management, clean air and our health. If everybody contributes their ‘tile’, together we create a sustainable, safe green living environment!

When you replace tiles by green, you obviously do not intend for the green to be overrun by weeds. Using a sustainable anti-weed fabric is the solution! DuPont™ Plantex® Gold is 100% recyclable, chemical free and permeable to water and nutrients. This anti-weed fabric even makes plants grow faster and it enhances the quality and quantity of crops. DuPont™ Plantex® Gold makes it possible, even in urban surroundings, to enjoy a green living environment where flowers, butterflies and bees may live together in a rich biodiversity.

What are you waiting for? Why not flip some tiles yourself?
