Safe and Sound

PlayGrind is a safe, recyclable alternative to playground sand pits. With the increase in playground-related injuries and the spread of germs over the past two decades, the playground requires a safe ground that can absorb shock and not carry or spread germs. Sand pits located in children's playgrounds carry germs and diseases transmitted by animals or people in the parks. There is hope that other authority figures responsible for playgrounds across the country will start to follow the lead councils, which have invested in good quality playgrounds by replacing sand pits with products like PlayGrind.
