Sunbrella, the leading manufacturer of performance fabrics servicing the marine industry, has renewed its support of Bonefish & Tarpon Trust as a Silver Sponsor.
As the flagship brand of Glen Raven, Inc., Sunbrella has demonstrated a long-standing commitment to sustainability for over 60 years by producing top-quality textiles for indoor and outdoor living, including on the water, that stand the test of time and reduce the need for frequent replacement. Sunbrella is committed to investing in quality materials to reduce waste, focusing on renewable energy and zero-waste-to-landfill practices, and offering recycling options to support the full life cycle of Sunbrella fabrics.
“Being a good corporate citizen and steward of the environment is something that has always been a core value for Sunbrella,” said Steve Pawl, chief marketing officer at Glen Raven. “Through our relationship with Bonefish & Tarpon Trust, we are able to promote healthy fisheries and their marine environments for generations to come.”
Sunbrella’s dedication to sustainability is proven through many programs that aim to decrease the company’s environmental impact. For example, the Recycle My Sunbrella program gives new life to fabrics once a product reaches the end of its long life cycle; the initiative has collected one million pounds of fabric that overwise would have ended up in a landfill, with the goal of diverting an additional one million pounds by 2025.
Sunbrella marine fabrics are engineered with high quality materials to withstand marine conditions — resisting microbial pinking, UV ray fading and more. From shade to marine and upholstery, our fabrics are easy to clean and last longer to limit the need for replacement, ultimately creating less waste.
“We thank Sunbrella for its longstanding support of our mission,” said Jim McDuffie, BTT President and CEO. “As a valued corporate partner, Sunbrella has helped BTT achieve many lasting conservation victories benefitting the flats fishery and the vital habitats that support it. We look forward to what we will accomplish together next to conserve bonefish, tarpon, and permit.”
