Delivering Clean, White Playsand to Sandboxes, Since 2001!

Summertime inevitably means kids in sandboxes, a childhood pastime with a proven track record as beneficial developmental play. But not all sand sold in stores and found in sandboxes is safe for children. Much of the sand sold in hardware and landscape stores is derived from crushed quartz rock and contains crystalline silica dust, a known carcinogen and cause of a fatal lung condition called silicosis.*  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) warn against inhaling crystalline silica dust for workers, indicating the use of protective clothing and masks during occupational exposure. Safe Sand Company warns teachers and parents to avoid regular exposure to crystalline silica dust.

The Safe Sand Company was founded to provide an alternative to unsafe children's playsand. The State of California requires a cancer and health risk warning label on playsand containing crystalline silica. That is because most of the bagged sand found in today's stores is not natural sand, but actually derived from quarried quartz rocks. The dust from such sand is regulated by OSHA and known to cause cancer and fatal lung conditions. To learn more about the risks from regular exposure to crystalline silica, get informed on our information page at or visit for the most recent research results. The Safe Sand Company is dedicated to the purpose of informing the public about healthful sandplay and distributing a safe, non-hazardous playsand for children, parents, child care professionals and educators everywhere.
