Protecting Your Right to Breathe
Endless Pools supports winds of change with the Clean Air Council
Aston, PA – Aquatic innovator Endless Pools gifted $5,000 to Philadelphia's Clean Air Council. The environmental health advocacy organization earmarked the donation specifically for their innovative GoPhillyGo activity program.
Both organizations stand as pioneers in their respective fields. The Council is oldest environmental non-profit in Philadelphia; it was founded in 1967, before the EPA, Earth Day, and the modern Clean Air Act. Endless Pools has been facilitating access to water since 1988 with compact, innovative counter-current pools for swimming, fitness, therapy, and active family time.
"At Endless Pools, we believe in the transformative power of water," noted Darren Pearse, the company's General Manager. "The Council actively supports the power of air. For our health, for our children, for life, they've been well ahead of the curve on this vital environmental issue. We're honored to pitch in and lend some support to the Clean Air Council's ongoing work."
"I would like to thank Endless Pools for their generous donation to Clean Air Council and for supporting our mission to protect everyone’s right to a healthy environment," said Joseph Otis Minott, Clean Air Council Executive Director and Chief Counsel. "Like our GoPhillyGo program, Endless Pools supports health, wellness, and sustainability, providing a safe and eco-friendly way for individuals to stay active while social distancing during COVID."
GoPhillyGo offers state-of-the-art mapping technology to help Philadelphians explore their city through any combination of cycling, walking, and public transit. With user-friendly customization options at GoPhillyGo.org, the online tool is designed to open up new vistas while providing fun and accessible car-free alternatives.
Endless Pools sees the Council as a natural partner. The company's pools and swim spas use less water, less energy, and fewer chemicals than traditional pools. Their small footprint makes them ideal for homeowners who've downsized for environmental concerns. Some owners of LEED-certified homes have chosen Endless Pools to maintain their home's sustainable ethos.
Endless Pools made the gift through their charitable Endless Access program, an initiative supported by their parent company. Masco Corporation. In 2021, Endless Pools donated $77,500 to established area non-profits to support diversity, wellness, and proactive social change.
