Clorox Launches Healthy Parks ProjectApril 22, 2022
The Clorox Co., parent company of CloroxPro™, has launched its Healthy Parks Project in recognition of Earth Day (April 22).
According to a press release, the Healthy Parks Project is a new initiative to advance environmental justice through investment in community parks to help provide better access to green spaces among the underserved. To kick-off the project, Clorox has donated US$200,000 to the Oakland Parks and Recreation Foundation to support the improvement of parks in West Oakland, California, including historic DeFremery Park. Clorox will donate another $100,000 this year to additional locations near its facilities.
“The critical issue of environmental justice bridges our ESG commitments to healthy lives, a clean world, and thriving communities,” said Kirsten Marriner, Clorox chief people and corporate affairs officer. “Communities thrive when people have access to green spaces, yet many neighborhoods have historically not had access to this critical resource. We want all people to have equal access to beautiful and healthy parks.”
Building on a century-long legacy in cleaning and disinfecting, CloroxPro™ offers some of the industry’s most recognized and trusted brand names for commercial cleaning, including its Clorox Healthcare products and technologies for healthcare facilities.
