Ecocise to break Guinness Book socks collection record
Oct '13
The Ecocise Bamboo Guinness Book of World Records Challenge is set for October 13, 2013. This world record challenging launch of Ecocise high performance athletic socks will accomplish three goals:

1. Help the National MS Society create a world free of MS as a valued partner for their 3 day Challenge Walk and Bike MS Events.

2. Challenge the Guinness Book of World Records with an attempt to break the largest sock drive in 8 hours at one location record by collecting 2460 pairs of socks.

3. Represent San Diego entrepreneurship on the popular Shark Tank Show on ABC. We will present our entire line of spun bamboo clothes but will focus primarily on the one of a kind eco friendly high performance bamboo socks. These organic bamboo fiber socks feel like silk, have built in arch support, are naturally organic, anti-bacterial, and will help Ecocise create a world free of MS by donating 10% of all proceeds from the sale of these high performance athletic socks to National MS Society.

Kobey’s Swap Meet is a staple of the San Diego community and the perfect location for a record breaking event. Kobey’s is stepping up to help with the largest sock drive in the world at one location within an eight hour period.

“My Family & The Kobey Corporation are excited to be partnered with ECOCISE Bamboo Clothes to achieve & break the Guinness Book World Record for The Most Socks Collected in an 8 hour period!” says Kobey’s Operations Manager Anthony Pretto. He goes on to claim that he not only loves Ecocise Bamboo socks, but confidently declares, “I think we can collect 5000!”

With nearly 10,000 visitors to the largest open air market in San Diego County every week, participants add to their selling or shopping experience by donating new or gently used infant, youth, or adult size “pairs” of socks at space H-16. All pairs of socks collected will be donated to the Goodwill of San Diego County.

Bill Evans, Founder of Ecocise Bamboo Clothing, brings years of background in the fitness industry to his line of Ecocise Bamboo Clothes. The entire line of clothing and socks support the mission of Ecocise to provide products focused on the benefits of healthy living and bring out the athlete in all those who wear their spun bamboo fiber clothing that are naturally antibacterial, environmentally friendly, and luxuriously soft.
