Art Castanares, Businessman-Lobbyist-*** Artist

Our company sold Art Castanares over $300,000.00 worth of inventory and Mr. Castanares simply disappeared with the product and never paid his bill. In addition, Mr. Castanares runs a couple of other fraudulent business' and and also goes under the name of Purchase Green, of which have been purported to take materials, failed to complete projects and take customers money and not returning. On top of all this fraudulent behavior, Mr. Art Castanares is suppose to be a public figure in politics as a registered lobbyist and campaign manager. If this is the case, then you can see why America is going down the tubes with *** artists such as this. Please, anyone considering doing business with Art Castanares, Manzana Solar or ecowaterless grass, please stay away. You've been fairly warned about the deception Mr. Art Castanares has created. The fact that he continues to run in and out of politics & business and has not been thrown in jail at this point, is a mystery to our company. If you are in the solar industry or synthetic grass industry do not get involved with any of the companies listed here. Finally, if you are a politician and looking for a campaign manager, think twice. Your name will be soiled just like Mr. Castanares reputation.

The man has done nothing wrong. He loves his community and buisness. All of you are just jealous of his success.



This false report has been posted in an effort to damage Mr. Castanares, and the information is completely false.


Castanares has never been associated in any way with and Purchase Green.

Mr. Castanares is a partner in Manzana Solar which has successfully completed solar projects and recently won a civil trial and was awarded a $12 million judgment.

Manzana Solar has contracts with the YMCA and is very highly regarded in the solar industry.

Contact Mr. Castanares directly at 619-292-**** if you have any questions or concerns.


I hired Art Castanares to provide consulting for our Church and paid him $5,000.00 to do so. I will be more than happy to share the agreement as well.

Art attending one meeting with the City Officials I'm working with and Lied about many other meetings, cooresponences and phones calls that never happened! He is a Liar, Cheat, Fraud and Scammer!!!



"stay away" thats the best you have, some hard paper work or copies would make a choice to "stay away". post the facts.


This post is a fake! Notice the name of the poster!

The person who posted this is a competitor and created a totally false post here.

Mr. Castanares is not connected to any of the claims here. The $300,000 issue was with EcoAlliance, a company in Ontario, CA that went bankrupt a few years ago.

The website WWW.ECOWATERLESSGRASS.COM was part of EcoAlliance but is now a seperate company.

There is NO connection between Mr. Castanares and these companies.



This report is FALSE and entirely wrong.

I worked with EcoAlliance and ecowaterlessgrass. They were not connected to Art Castanares at all.

I think this is a mixup because the name is similar to Mr. Castanares' company name but they are wrong in connecting the two.

Eco Alliance Turf DID go through bankruptcy and sold its assets.

I hope the poster of this report removes it and sets the record straight.


Thanks for the info.

Please give me the name of your company that supplied the $300,000 in inventory and where you're located. I would like to know more about it.



Our group had a bad run in with Art Castanares as well. Stay clear of this guy and any companies he's associatated with.
