Green streets

TD Bank and the Arbor Day Foundation have launched TD Green Streets, a new grant program, that will support the purchase of trees, tree planting and maintenance, and educational activities by offering “ten $20,000 grants in support of innovative urban forestry initiatives in undeserved communities.”

TD shares that TD Green Streets is part of their continued effort to reduce paper usage:

TD Green Streets is a component of TD Forests, a North American initiative that protects critical forest habitats and plants trees equal to the amount of paper the bank uses each year. As part of the program, TD has committed to reducing its paper usage by 20 percent by 2015. TD Forests includes urban tree programs such as TD Green Streets and TD Tree Days – TD’s flagship employee volunteer program.

“TD Green Streets is another example of our environmental commitment and will be an important component of our TD Forests program,” said Diana Glassman, Head of Environmental Affairs for TD Bank in a statement. “This partnership with Arbor Day Foundation allows us to support local urban forest initiatives, and ultimately, contributes to our goal to be a strong environmental partner in the communities where our customers live and work.”

Information, eligibility rules, and the grant application can be found at www.tdgreenstreets.com. Winners will be announced in early April 2013.
