A swimsuit called the “Sponge Suit” — which absorbs dangerous oil-based debris from the water as the user swims through it, cleaning the water in the process — is featured in the Philadelphia Eagles’ Swimsuit Calendar, released last week.
This technology is made using a hydrophobic carbon-based sponge-like material applied by a 3D printer. Because the wearable absorbs the toxins from within, it also repels water, enabling an eco-friendly swimming experience. In addition, the contaminants get trapped in the pores of the swimsuit material, preventing direct contact between the user’s skin and the accumulated dirt.
The suit was designed by Eray/Carbajo, an architectural and design firm, in collaboration with Sponge, Inc., which developed the technology.
The Eagles cheerleading team did its photo shoot in the Dominican Republic, where it participated in community efforts to provide access to clean water in the village of Cajuil and Macao La Ceiba.
“As a professional sports team, we have a unique platform to serve as sustainability leaders through our continued Go Green efforts and commitment to the environment,” said Christina Weiss Lurie, Eagles Charitable Foundation president, Eagles Social Responsibility, in a statement. “Having the opportunity to help improve the quality of life for the people of the Dominican Republic has been a rewarding and educational experience for us. We believe that these innovative water filtration systems, along with the creativity of the Sponge Suit, will spark the conversation about the environment and further raise awareness.”
The cover of this year’s Cheerleaders calendar, wearing the sponge suit, features Snow Feng, a medical assistant. Feng has a B.S. in Biochemistry from the University of California at San Diego and an M.S. degree in physician assistant studies from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.
“I am very passionate about the Eagles Go Green efforts that I am involved in as a Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader,” said Feng. “By standing on the cover and wearing the technological sponge suit developed with technology to help clean polluted water, I have another chance to discuss the importance of sustainability. It will make us more aware of the need for inventive solutions to environmental problems.”
