The city of Sheffield has a long industrial character, supplying the world with high-quality steel, that has evolved over time into one of the greenest cities in England. The tool bank logo for Green City Action is based on its contemporary identity.


The name of the tool bank project was changed to ‘Sheffield Community Toolbank’ to better communicate its character and help with search engine optimisation (SEO) to drive traffic from the Sheffield city region to the GCA website.
