Sustainability

In addition to consciously minimizing our environmental footprint through energy efficiency and mindfulness, the Baltimore Community ToolBank features significant on-site projects that allow us to repurpose rainwater that falls from our roof.

Two main on-site features allow us to re-purpose more between 700,000 – 1 million gallons of stormwater runoff annually from over two acres of rooftop: 1) ToolBank Rain Gardens and 2) Stormwater Factory. Rainfall is rerouted to water native plants and wash tools. In turn, native flora creates bio-habitat for a range of pollinators from birds to butterflies to bats to bees and more.
