Landsea cooperates with BASF to create haze-free kindergartens
Wuhan, China – April 26, 2017 – Today, BASF and Landsea, the green properties developer, announced the completion of a kindergarten renovation project in Wuhan under the joint initiative “Green Bud Action”. Thanks to this project, children in kindergartens can enjoy fresher indoor air, avoid haze and oxygen deficiency.
Green Bud Action aims to give children a “breathing kindergarten” with completely fresh air.

Through this project, the schools’ facilities will be upgraded for better environmental performance, and a healthier lifestyle and greener construction techniques will be promoted. Renovation projects in Tianjin, Beijing, Hangzhou are also currently underway.
Shuguang Kindergarten, which was founded in 1952, located on Yongqing Road, Jiang’an District and adjacent to Liberation Park, is among the first schools to complete the renovation.
