Earth Day is April 22 - here are some resources for you!

With Earth Day fast approaching, consider how you can make your life more eco-friendly...including your playspace builds! Here are my favorite resources:

KaBOOM! offers some very practical green building guidelines that can help any playspace project! Learn how to reduce the amount of waste created, how to reuse and recycle build day leftovers, how to plan your recycling strategy, and more. These are all best practices KaBOOM! has developed, but we'd love to hear your best practices too. You can post those in the Sustainability Best Practices group!

And speaking of groups, Playing Green is a group for folks to talk about GREEN! Whether or not you're creating a sustainable playground, or just looking for people "greening" their playspace, this is the place to share that.

Also, our friends at Good2Gether have some region-specific Earth Day resources in their blog. Go check it out!

And finally...these fine folks challenge you to the question, "How green are you?" You could even win a prize for your response!

Post your favorite resources on "going green" in the comments!
