Studies confirm there is significant value in having children spend time outdoors playing, and Project EverGreen’s “Healthy Turf. Healthy Kids.”™ has its sights set on restoring and revitalizing green spaces, including sports fields and parks, for children to play, exercise and connect.

With childhood obesity doubling in the past 30 years, the need for safe and modern recreational green spaces is critical to turn the tide against this disturbing trend. Not only do yards, parks and sports fields promote a healthier lifestyle, they also contribute to economic growth, community development and benefit the environment.
