May 2017 Business Member Spotlight – BRP – Evinrude
We’re excited to highlight BRP – Evinrude in our May 2017 Business Member Spotlight!
BRP – Evinrude joined our 22nd Annual Spring River Cleanup on Saturday, April 22, 2017. Their employees showed up in droves by land and by boat, cleaning up at locations on our Milwaukee Harbor and Milwaukee River and helped all of our volunteers collectively remove more than 100,000 pounds of trash from our Milwaukee River Basin. Giving our rivers a good “spring cleaning” helps our communities better enjoy our waterways, by land or by boat, throughout the summer and fall.
Thanks, BRP – Evinrude, for helping us make our three rivers swimmable and fishable for future generations!
“Evinrude has called the Wisconsin waterways home since 1909. Having the opportunity to participate in events like the Milwaukee Riverkeeper’s Annual Spring River Cleanup honors this legacy.
Evinrude already integrates conservation and environmental stewardship in our product design and manufacturing processes. We make the cleanest combustion outboard engines in the world and our manufacturing processes minimize wastewater. Extending our outreach to community action feels natural.
We also focus and invest in collaborative partnerships that can amplify Evinrude’s commitment to sustainable practices more globally. We are currently involved in research into alternative fuels like Biobutanol and sponsor research fellowships at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s School of Freshwater Sciences.
Milwaukee Riverkeeper’s Cleanup event was the perfect opportunity for us to connect two of our passions – love of being on the water and preserving the water ways. We can’t wait for next year!”
