While much of the country is experiencing winter weather, when spring returns with warmer temperatures, children, their families and pets will be excited to spend time outdoors enjoying green spaces in their communities, backyards and other natural green areas.
On behalf of The Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI), we hope you will consider sharing some of the health benefits our outdoor living spaces provide. In fact, research shows that children reap numerous health, social and personal benefits from spending time outside playing and that the green space and landscaping contributes to health, happiness and intellect.
All these points (and there are many more) reinforce the health benefits of our outdoor living spaces. They provide a place for children and pets to play and directly contribute to our mental and physical well-being.
