Giving Gardens

Ecolab's Giving Gardens in Eagan and St. Paul, Minn. produced more than 1,260 pounds of produce over the past six growing seasons that was donated to local community partner Neighborhood House's food shelf in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Partners in Food Solutions

As part of its philanthropic volunteer programs, Ecolab supports Partners in Food Solutions, sharing resources, experience, methodologies and employee volunteer time to improve the capacity and capabilities of small and growing businesses in developing regions. The goal of the program is to enhance the production of healthy and fortified food products and increasing markets for smallholder farmers. 

Local Communities

Ecolab executives and community relations staff participate in local initiatives representing Ecolab on Community Advisory Panels and local chambers of commerce, speaking as experts, and serving on committees and boards of directors for non-profit organizations lending expertise in the area of strategic planning, finance, marketing and human resources.

Additionally, Ecolab's community partners request use of Ecolab facilities for meeting space for staff meetings, retreats and special events. For example, the American Red Cross uses Ecolab facilities at five different U.S. locations on an annual basis for blood drives as well as CPR trainings.
