Our Corporate Partners
In 2008 The Trust for Public Land partnered with Cox Enterprises to launch Cox Conserves Heroes, a national conservation awards program to honor and celebrate individuals who work to create, preserve, and improve the shared outdoor spaces in our communities. To date, the program has honored 130 volunteers and awarded $475,000 to local environmental nonprofits. More about Cox Conserves Heroes.
Garnier, a subsidiary of L'Oreal, USA, partnered with The Trust for Public Land and the City of Newark, New Jersey to install 55 recycling bins in three Newark parks. The bins are molded from beauty packaging waste collected through the Personal Care and Beauty Brigade, a recycling program made possible through Garnier's partnership with TerraCycle. The Brigade empowers consumers to collect and send in non-recyclable waste to be turned into innovative new products. Garnier's goal is to eliminate beauty waste from landfills.
For close to twenty years, MetLife Foundation has played an integral role in helping The Trust for Public Land build healthy communities all across the country. With MetLife Foundation's invaluable support, The Trust for Public Land has created more than 50 parks, playgrounds, and Fitness Zone exercise areas.
