TURI Works to Remove Harmful Chemicals in Gymnastics Facilities

Donoma Gymnastics is one of the latest businesses to adopt safer alternatives to toxic chemicals and was one of six businesses in Massachusetts recognized at the State House in 2023 for reducing their toxic footprint. The business eliminated unnecessary flame retardants from their foam pit cubes providing a healthier environment for children and families while maintaining fire safety. More than 10,000 foam gym pit cubes that contain flame retardants were replaced with new cubes without hazardous chemicals. The gym received a small business grant from TURI to support the project.
