East Moriches, NY (February 28, 2018) – SMI Co-Founder and CFO Robyn Butler announced a new partnership with clothing design company Relic to help raise funds for water filtering oyster projects around the United States. Based out of Long Island, Relic helps plant up to 50 oysters in estuaries and bays for every t-shirt that it sells.

“SMI has always aligned itself with TSI (Total Social Impact) companies whose missions and efforts we believe in”, says SMI CFO and Co-Founder, Robyn Butler. “Relic embodies the corporate mission of the future, providing a platform where commercial and socially conscious actions merge, and the consumer feels good participating in the experience.
