SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Sustainativity Inc., a newly formed Savannah-based 501c3 non-profit organization has announced their new board members and named Second Harvest of the Coastal Empire as its first and inaugural sustainability endowment recipient.   

Sustainativity Inc. is dedicated to direct philanthropic investments in sustainability and green environment choices.

Its new board members include Chair and founder Tommy Linstroth, principal at Trident Sustainablity Group and CEO of Green Badger; Vice Chair Nick Deffley, project manager at Step Up Savannah; Treasurer Annie Malone, principal of Axiom Management; Secretary Ed Hoffman, president of HES, Inc. and at large members Tripp Turner, president of JT Turner, and Ricardo De Soto, manager at Morgan Stanley.

Second Harvest of the Coastal Empire will be funded by Sustainativity for implementing a comprehensive lighting replacement program which will yield yearly savings of over $3,000 per year, funds that then will be used to provide added meals to community members.

"For us partnering with Second Harvest is the type of win-win investment Sustainativity Inc. is looking for", said Linstroth in a statement. "Rather than make a one-time donation, we can implement a lighting retrofit program that will allow Second Harvest to provide an additional 15,000 meals every year, just based on their future utility savings. In addition the program provides a significant reduction in pollution and carbon emissions."

100% of funds donated to Sustainativity are invested in sustainability projects in the Savannah community.
