UBB and ECO SWIM BY AQUA GREEN Removed 2,563 Pounds From the Delaware River
Location: Mainstream Swimsuits Easton PA
Date: May 28, 2011
On a beautiful Memorial Day Saturday, over 100 ECO SWIM BY AQUA GREEN employees traded their aprons and grilling tongs for gloves, litter, and trash bags.
This cleanup started at the ECO SWIM Factory in Easton, PA and a caravan of employees crossed over the Delaware to clean up the banks in Phillipsburg, NJ.
This cleanup was a ton of fun and record-breaking. ECO SWIM BY AQUA GREEN employees removed 2,563 pounds of trash from the banks. Even though we didn't collect a record amount of bags, we collected a ton of trash.
Volunteers found a number of interesting items during this cleanup including clothing, an oil lamp, a porcelain doll with no legs or head, a bone, car keys (I guess someone had to walk home), a shopping cart, an old school dell keyboard, 8 tires and lots of scrap metal.
Not only is ECO SWIM BY AQUA GREEN a leader in designer fashions, but an innovator in sustainable swimwear as well. They have many sustainable practices, a few include: reduction of fossil fuels up to 96.9% in USA manufacturing, their products and hang tags are made from recycled materials and their largest dye house ascribes to Oeko-Tex ecological standards (international testing a certification for textiles to reduce the use of certain chemicals) and uses energy saving practices for its operation.
ECO SWIM BY AQUA GREEN was in the top 1% for sustainability by a leading global retailer. Look for this eco-chic swimwear later this summer! Visit their facebook for more photos from the day!
