Sponge Suit that has the unique ability to clean the ocean by absorbing harmful oil-based contaminants as you swim will be prominently featured in the 2018 Philadelphia Eagles Swimsuit Calendar, which went on sale this week.
The Sponge Suit designed by SOUR (formerly known as Eray/Carbajo) with technology engineered by Sponge, Inc., will be prominently featured in the 2018 Philadelphia Eagles Swimsuit Calendar, which went on sale today. The prototype was created using the super-hydrophobic carbon based “sponge” material fitted into a cutting-edge 3D printed form.
Wearing the Sponge Suit on the cover of 2018 calendar is Snow Feng, a four-year veteran of the squad. Snow is a physician assistant who earned a B.S. degree in biochemistry from the University of California at San Diego and an M.S. degree in physician assistant studies from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. She is fluent in three languages – Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, and English.
“As a professional sports team, we have a unique platform to serve as sustainability leaders through our ongoing Go Green efforts and commitment to the environment,” said Christina Weiss Lurie, President Eagles Charitable Foundation, Eagles Social Responsibility. “Having the opportunity to help enhance the quality of life for residents of the Dominican Republic was a rewarding and educational experience for us. We believe that these innovative water filtration systems, along with the creativity seen in the Sponge Suit, will ignite conversation about the environment and further raise awareness.”
