Haul
15,250 lbs



United By Blue teamed up with Philadelphia Water, Partnership for the Delaware Estuary, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) and Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful for an adventurous cleanup on the Delaware River.

We took to the seas to find Philadelphia's own, Little Tinicum Island. As pollutants from the river flow south, much of the garbage and recyclables float to the shores of this island. With the help of 61 volunteers, we were able to haul 15,250 lbs. of trash from the Delaware and the shoreline.
