RevoluSun Invites Public to Sandy Beach Cleanup

RevoluSun Invites Public to Sandy Beach Cleanup

Just two weeks after opening their doors for business in 2009, RevoluSun held their first beach cleanup with the Oahu Surfrider Foundation, resulting in 900 pounds of trash removed from the Sandy Beach shoreline. This is a tradition that continues today. For the fifth year in a row, RevoluSun has partnered with the Surfrider Foundation’s Oahu Chapter for the Sandy Beach cleanup, which will be held July 19, from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. Volunteers will be rewarded with a commemorative T-Shirt and free lunch hosted by RevoluSun.

“Our partnership with Surfrider gives RevoluSun the opportunity to continue helping Hawaii in efforts of sustainability beyond providing clean, solar energy to individual homes,” states RevoluSun Principal Eric Carlson. “RevoluSun is more than a solar energy provider. We believe in greener values, caring for our land, and are part of a community working toward a better future for our families.”
