Play Fresh was founded in 2017 out of concern that today’s youth lacked the tools necessary to combat environmental risk factors and their adverse effects on our communities.
Over the last year, Play Fresh has championed environmental education outside of the classroom and into our communities. We incorporate environmentalism, public health, and humanitarianism into each of our programs to help the youth build the leadership skills necessary to become informed advocates for change.
In our first year, we were able to impact the lives of over 200 children.
To all of those who helped make this year possible thank you for your generosity, resources, and time.
Play Fresh 3-D educated students on how to make a difference by teaching:
which items should be recycled, composted or placed in trashed
how poor air quality affects their overall health
the importance of reducing their energy consumption
To offset the carbon footprint of the Play Fresh Football Camp:
All materials used and disposed of were reusable, recyclable, or compostable
Each athlete received a reusable BPA-Free water bottle
Staff and participant t-shirts were bought from an eco-friendly supplier
A tree was planted to offset the day's carbon emissions
Athletes were incentivized to walk, bus, bicycle or carpool to the event
