SustainU & Bridge Day Mark 7th Series of Green Initiative T-Shirts

Since October 2009, we’ve been the proud producers of official Bridge Day West Virginia T-shirts!

One year later marked the first year that all Bridge Day official clothing was American made out of 100% recycled material. The event, which garnered over 100,000 attendants, was a giant success and all of the official T-shirts were completely sold out! Thanks to this partnership between us, Bridge Day was now more of a greener festival than it ever was before.

Fast forward years later to October 2016 – our 8th consecutive year collaborating with Bridge Day and the 7th year making the “Green Series Collectors Graphic”…and we’re more excited than ever to be a part of it!

“It is always an honor for SustainU to provide Bridge Day with apparel made with American labor and recycled technology,” said SustainU CEO, Chris Yura. “West Virginia has tremendous natural resources and amazing people. Bridge Day is a great way to show off our incredible home state.”

Resources in West Virginia are some of our state’s greatest assets. By choosing our recycled apparel for official Bridge Day clothing, we’re working together to help fight and protect the conservation of these resources.

In 1977, when the famous New River Gorge Bridge was finished, it was at the time the longest steel single-span arch bridge and the highest vehicular bridge in the world. The bridge itself is a celebration of American hard work and craft, as well as the West Virginia spirit. The combination of this spirit along with the protection of our resources is what helps make this collaboration be a successful, sustainable and environmentally friendly event.

If you’re attending the event and would like to purchase official Bridge Day clothing, be on the lookout for our tents so you can stop by and meet us before making your purchase!
