Presenting Mayors’ Clean Up Sponsor Founders Brewing Co.
September 5, 2012
Internationally awarded and nationally loved, Founders Brewing Co. is a company that continues to invest and take part in their home state and local community of Grand Rapids. Most recently, Founders Brewing Co. will sponsor the Mayors’ Grand River Clean Up coming up on September 15.
“Keeping all of our natural resources healthy, vibrant and clean is our responsibility,” said Dave Engbers, co-founder and vice president of Founders Brewing Co. “The Grand River is the reason why Grand Rapids was originally established as a trading post: We have a responsibility to celebrate, nurture and respect what it has brought to our community.”
The four-city initiative to keep the riverbanks of the Grand River clean is a part of Founders’ long-term support and care of the Grand River, which includes its working with Grand Rapids Whitewater initiative to restore the rapids back into the river. Founders’ concern for the environment goes beyond the banks of the river to promoting recycling on premise and using recycled products when possible. In the past, Founders sponsored the 2012 WMEAC Earth Day Celebration as well as hosting Grand Rapids’ Green Drinks.
The Grand Rapids Mayors’ Clean Up will be another chance not just for Founders but for anyone to give the Grand River a visit and give it a little bit of tender loving care. Plus, what a great chance to hang out with one of Grand Rapids’ favorite breweries!
