Making lives better is what we do at SMI. Whether it’s easing the stress of a Facilities Manager, contributing to the growth of a SPAN crew or doing our part to make the world better for humanity, we’re committed to being a socially responsible corporation and causing a real, tangible, lasting impact beyond our bottom line.
SMI is partnering with local startup Relic to keep our natural waterways clean by using oysters. One oyster can filter up to 10 gallons of water every day. Relic will be planting up to 5 oysters for each t-shirt they sell in one of three locations:
We’re also helping Relic clean up Long Island beaches. Through a partnership with the Village of Westhampton Beach, Relic has introduced two beach clean-up stations located at Rogers and Lashley Beach. With SMI’s support, Relic is rolling out 10 more beach clean-up stations. Four stations will be on the North Shore in Riverhead, and the remaining six will be placed along Dune Road beaches.
“SMI has always had a philosophy of partnering; recognizing that our industry relies heavily on water, we want to extend that partnership to communities that have been severely impacted by droughts, pollution and population demands for clean water. We want to minimize our eco-footprint by contributing to the research and implementation of getting water to people in need.”
