The Toro Company is supporting sustainability efforts in two communities where the company has facilities, Riverside, California, and Windom, Minnesota, through Audubon International’s Sustainable Communities Program. The community-wide improvement program engages residents, businesses, and municipal leaders in identifying low-cost strategies for practicing sustainability that safeguard quality of life.
Toro’s sponsorship provides the two cities membership in the program for two years, along with a grant for a demonstration site project in each community. “Toro selected Riverside and Windom to demonstrate their commitment to improving the quality of life for people in these communities,” said Joanna Nadeau, Director of Community Programs at Audubon International in a company press release.
Judson McNeil, President of The Toro Foundation, said in a press release, “We believe that creating sustainable communities is good for people, for the environment, and for business. We are pleased to draw on Audubon International’s experience in creating comprehensive community sustainability initiatives, and we hope this will lead to both Riverside and Windom receiving the designation of Audubon International Certified Sustainable Communities.”
