Project evergreen canada
Project EverGreen is committed to informing the Canadian public about the positive effects of well-maintained green spaces, including lawns and landscapes, sports turf, golf courses and parks. We want to inspire you to get involved and get passionate about green spaces!
Green spaces are a great benefit to our environment. They filter pollutants and dust from the air, they provide shade and lower temperatures in urban areas, and they even reduce erosion of soil into our waterways.
Green spaces benefit the economy in many ways. Studies have found that employees are more productive when working around interior plants, and that hospital patients recover faster when they have a view of green space.
Imagine your local park completely devoid of green. It’s not a pretty picture. It’s easy to take for granted the importance of green spaces in our lives.
