Honda supports a broad range of community-based environmental education, preservation and restoration efforts. That means we’re providing grants, products, and in some cases, the support of hundreds of Honda volunteers. Whether it’s cleaning beaches, restoring wetlands, greening urban areas, or engaging students in field-science research, we believe in caring for the environments in which we work and live.
