      It has to do with the sun being reflected off an object. Grass absorbs other coloured lights but it reflects green light!

      With grass, plants have a compound called chlorophyll, which absorbs red and blue light and reflects back green light. We can then see the green light! Chlorophyll is what gives the plants energy!
