FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 9/25/2017
Eco Global Manufacturing
Providence, RI: Eco Global, the renowned maker of renewable bio-foam and gels, is proud to partner with the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation as part of its mission to support underserved communities and the environment. This is the first of several foundational partnerships that Eco Global is creating to support worthy organizations by helping them raise funds and in turn create a pathway for workforce training for dislocated employees.
The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation is dedicated to supporting military and first responders. As part of the partnership, Eco Global will provide high performance orthotics for sale to Foundation supporters. It will also donate at least $2 from each pair of insoles sold to the Foundation to support its work in the community with veterans and first responders.
“Eco Global is pleased to partner with the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation (T2T). We will offer their supporters a 50% discount on premium, locally made products and help surrounding communities,” said Jim Stallman, President and CEO of Eco Global. “We will be partnering with local undeserved communities to bolster our workforce for this amazing project. This is a win for everyone. Our partnership with T2T will create new jobs here in Rhode Island, and the products we make will generate donations back to T2T.”
Eco Global is known worldwide for its pioneering work in creating eco-friendly, plant-based foam and gel. The new foam is made with plant based renewal oils rather than petroleum, and is thus environmentally friendly, carbon negative, and poses less hazard to the workforce during manufacture. The company’s products, which include pillows, insoles and medical devices, are truly Made in USA at its Rhode Island Warehouse.
Eco Global is also a For Benefit Corporation (B-Corp), hiring underserved workforce in underserved communities and engaging in constructive social work, such as retrofitting women’s shelters to be able to accept pets. Eco Global’s B-Corp strategy is a new one in the United States, in which companies commit percentages of their profits to support local underserved communities.
“We feel we are the first in the nation to pair our B-Corp strategy with our foundational partnerships. This helps everyone. Our foundational partnership charities raise funds, their supporters get new ways to donate, and we create US jobs in underserved communities,” said Stallman.
