“I’m excited to join the NatureWorks team as their first golf ambassador and contribute to their efforts to raise awareness around sustainability,” said Brendon Todd. “Golf is an outdoor game, and I’m proud to be associated with a company that is helping to have a positive impact on climate change and plastic waste. I was raised to leave the world better than I found it. My hope is that my kids and future generations will have the same opportunities to enjoy the outdoors that I have had.”
From Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, Brendon Todd turned pro in 2007 and has had three PGA Tour victories, including back-to-back wins in 2019 at the Bermuda Championship and the Mayakoba Golf Classic.
NatureWorks has long developed partnerships in the world of sports beginning with their support of the Green Sports Alliance in 2010. Since that time, NatureWorks has partnered with both collegiate and professional sports venues to demonstrate how circular principles like food waste diversion to compost could be successfully executed, economically beneficial, and contribute to more sustainable communities.
