FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., Aug. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Revo, in association with Expedition Blue Planet and Sunglass Hut International, today announced National Geographic Emerging Explorer and Revo Ambassador Alexandra Cousteau will make an in-store appearance Tuesday, Aug. 17 from 2 - 4 p.m. at the Sunglass Hut at the Denver Pavillion (500 16th Street, Ste 118, Denver, CO).
As a tribute to the 100th birthday of her legendary grandfather, Jacques-Yves Cousteau, Alexandra and her Expedition Blue Planet team set out earlier this summer on a 138-day journey across North America to explore critical water issues impacting the United States, Canada and Mexico. Revo, the ecologically-friendly sunglass company featuring the Revo Re-Use(TM) frame, is one of the sponsors of Expedition Blue Plant.
This historic road-trip-with-a-message pairs Alexandra's family legacy of expeditionary filmmaking with social media and live events to engage and educate the public on water issues that affect us all. In addition to filming key water stories for the National Geographic Society Freshwater Initiative, this expedition also features watershed activities in communities along the route.
Open to the public, event attendees will have the unique opportunity to meet Alexandra and discuss how they can support organizations working on watershed issues in their local communities. Everyone in attendance will receive a signed poster from Alexandra and complimentary gift from Revo. Plus, all Revo purchases made at Sunglass Hut during each event will be accompanied by a free Klean Kanteen water bottle.
