Join us on 11/27 for a day of fresh air and cleaning the planet

Since we can’t all be together for community cleanups thanks to you-know-what, taking care of our own backyards is more important than ever. Join us for Blue Friday: a day where we walk off our turkey and do DIY cleanups for a collective impact.

3. Get outside on Black Friday and show the Earth some TLC!

 

4. Responsibly dispose of your trash and recycling in home or public receptacles.

    FAQS

  • Blue Friday is a DIY Cleanup Campaign in which we encourage our volunteers, customers, and employees to spend part of their day after Thanksgiving getting outdoors and participating in community activism. Think: walking off yesterday’s’ turkey with your family combined with environmental activism. 

    Blue Friday is our environmentally friendly twist on the day traditionally known for consumption, Black Friday. For the past five years, United By Blue has virtually gathered volunteers from all over the country to do a community cleanup in their area on Blue Friday. While the pounds collected from Blue Friday cleanups don’t count towards our one-for-one mission, the data collected is submitted to ocean conservation research organizations to further their work on reducing the impacts of marine debris. The goal of Blue Friday is to encourage our communities to think before consuming on Black Friday, and to add some environmental activism and outdoor time to a day normally spent in long lines at stores. 

  • Anywhere in your home community that is in compliance with your local COVID-19 regulations! Blue Friday cleanups don’t have to be near a waterway - they can be in a local park, on your block, or in your backyard! Anywhere that you can reduce litter in the natural environment and responsibly dispose of it is a great Blue Friday cleanup. 

    Fun Fact: 80% of the trash in the ocean started off as land based - meaning that the litter started out on land and was carried to a waterway through wind, a storm drain, or other means. This means cleaning up trash anywhere is helping to prevent that trash from entering a waterway or ocean!

  • Cleanups should occur individually or in small groups as allowed by local COVID-19 regulations. 

    All volunteers cleaning up should wear a face mask when within 6ft of any other person. 

    Volunteers should wear thick gloves and closed-toe shoes at all times when cleaning up. 

    Volunteers should select a cleanup location that is permitted within their local COVID-19 guidelines. Outdoor areas where people can spread out are recommended. 

    Volunteers should not touch “sharps” when cleaning up (broken glass, needles, etc.). 

    Volunteers should dispose of trash safely in public receptacles or their home disposal system. Those who want to avoid contact with public infrastructure should select the home disposal process. 

    Volunteers should be aware of their surroundings and personal capabilities when cleaning in natural areas, along water, or in neighborhoods.

    United By Blue, nor their Blue Friday partners, hold any liability for safety during individual Blue Friday cleanups.
