The Eagles’ cheerleaders started incorporating eco-activism into the annual swimsuit calendar about three years ago by wearing swimsuits and accessories that were earth friendly. But that wasn’t enough for the 38-member squad. To go greener, the sexy squad has taken the calendar to another level of eco-activism by adding it to a mobile app for iPhones, iPads, and Android devices.
Cheerleaders for the Eagles will be doing the shoot for the calendar at Bartram’s Garden in Philadelphia today and at Sweetwater Farms in Glen Mills on Wednesday. Fans of the eco-friendly ladies won’t be able to get into the sessions, so please don’t try. Dom Savini, the photographer for the eco-calendar, picked the locations to showcase the beauty of nature in the Philadelphia region.
The 12-month calendar (January 2012- December 2012) will be available in early November for a price of $1.99 for the mobile app version. The calendar will include 38 photos and videos of the sexy Eagles’ cheerleaders wearing earth-friendly swimsuits made from natural and recycled products.
Barbara Zaun, director of cheerleading, said of the calendar move to a mobile app, “No other NFL team has tried this yet.”
It probably won’t be long before the cheerleaders from the other NFL teams start catching on to the idea. But right now the Eagles’ cheerleaders have a corner on the market. The calendar in its not so earth-friendly form continually sells out each year and is considered one of the most successful calendars in sports.
We can only hope that the eco-conscious version will be even more successful and since it is digital is no fear of it selling out.
