Bridge Day Shirts: How to Get One, And Why You Should

Hurry, hurry, hurry folks! Step right up and get them while they're hot. No we're not talking about those delicious Bridge Day funnel cakes. We wanted to let you know to be sure to get your Official Bridge Day 2012 apparel as soon as you step foot on the Bridge.

For the third consecutive year, SustainU Apparel has partnered with Bridge Day to provide the official T-shirts for the event. And we think it’s a great fit. No pun intended.

SustainU, a West Virginia company headquarted in Morgantown, is a leading producer of high quality apparel, using 100% recycled materials in their fabrics. And what's even better is that the shirts are made right here in the USA (just like our favorite Bridge).

Why SustainU?

Using a West Virginia clothing company that makes shirts right here in the US just makes sense. Bridge Day is a great fall festival, thanks in large part to the American ingenuity and hard work that went into building our amazing New River Gorge Bridge. When it was completed in 1977, it was the longest steel single-span arch bridge and the highest vehicular bridge in the world. It’s no wonder we still celebrate this marvel every fall.

Another reason SustainU is the right company for Bridge Day shirts? The use of recycled materials in its clothing. One of West Virginia's greatest assets is its abundant natural resources, and protecting and conserving them has become much more of a priority in the past decade. Bridge Day is serious about recycling. This is just another way to show it.

Want One?

SustainU will have three tents on Bridge Day. They will be offering short and long sleeve shirts and hoodies at these locations. Make sure you don't wait to grab yours; shirts have sold out the past few years.

It’s also important to note that half the profits from the sales of the shirts will be donated to the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce. This helps them continue to make Bridge Day bigger and better every year.
