Environmentally Preferable Playground Purchasing

The mayors of more than 850 cities in the U.S. have signed the U.S. Conference of Mayors Climate Protection Agreement, and these cities are now crafting sustainability plans to reduce their emission of greenhouse gases, conserve water and other natural resources, and reduce energy use. This session enables park and recreation professionals to use their purchasing power to create a positive effect on the sustainability of their operations and the environmental health of the planet.

 

Participants in this session will learn the fundamental principles of environmental stewardship, gain a working knowledge of what makes a product environmentally preferable, and how these standards can be applied to the purchase of playground equipment.

 

Landscape Structures is authorized by IACET to offer .15 CEUs for this session and 1.5 CEUs/Professional Development Units by LA CES. Upon completion of the session, participants will possess knowledge regarding:  

  • The differences between the Earth’s natural circular cycle, and humankind’s linear manufacturing cycle
  • The four key principles of sustainability
  • The definitions of common environmental terms
  • Awareness of factors that make a product more environmentally preferable than another
  • The crucial questions to ask while evaluating playground equipment
