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 a long-standing partner with local startup Relic. We’re beyond proud of the work they do using their unique profit oriented clothing line to drive beach cleanup and oyster planting initiatives in multistate Bay areas.
One oyster can filter up to 10 gallons of water every day. And each T-shirt purchased translates into five oysters planted, creating an ever growing impact.
Through an expanding partnership with local governments throughout Long Island, Relic is now projecting 50 beach cleanup stations along the north and south shores of Long Island.
“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.”
