Saving the planet isn't easy.      Starting is. 

On November 29, skip the Black Friday lines and #OptOutside. We’re collaborating with REI to transform their influential holiday initiative into something even greater: a campaign that will make an immediate impact on the trash polluting our waterways and wild areas. This Black Friday, take it a step further and Opt To Act. With our reusable DIY cleanup kit, making an impact is as simple as a mesh bag, a pair of gloves and a moment of your time. So while you’re out, use our kit to pick up litter you come across. And every day after, keep striving to leave the world better than you found it.

    FAQS

  • We always welcome walk-ins to our cleanups. If pre-registration fills up, feel free to just show up the morning of the cleanup. We’ll be sure to have extra cleanup supplies for you!

  • We provide all cleanup supplies, including trash/recycling bags and gloves. We also provide water, sunscreen, bug spray, and hand sanitizer. At community cleanup events, volunteers will receive a free stainless steel water bottle. 

    We recommend wearing long pants and closed-toe shoes to our cleanups. You are welcome to bring your own trash-picker if you’d like!

  • Unless specified in the event description, we welcome all ages and abilities at our cleanup events. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have a parent/guardian pre-register for the cleanup on their behalf ahead of time in order to sign our Minor Waiver, or, come to the cleanup accompanied by a parent or guardian. For volunteers under the age of 14, we ask that a parent/guardian attend the cleanup with the Minor regardless. 


    If you have questions/concerns regarding the accessibility of the cleanup location, please reach out to cleanup@unitedbyblue.com prior to the event to discuss accommodations.

  • We welcome event partners that help amplify our cleanup events in the following ways: 

    Promotional (assists with recruiting 40+ volunteers per cleanup through marketing, social media, etc.)Educational (adds a relevant educational component to the cleanup) Logistical (adds a necessary component to the event structure, like permits, location scouting, catering, etc.)

    If you think your company / organization fits one of these categories, please reach out to cleanup@unitedbyblue to chat further! 


    Note: We always welcome corporate groups / organizations to volunteer at our cleanups with no obligation other than showing up. If you’re just looking for a way to get out in your community, I encourage you to join us at a cleanup near you! For groups larger than 30, please contact cleanup@unitedbyblue.com at least 2 weeks prior to the cleanup to coordinate.

  • We always welcome cleanup location suggestions! Please note, we are looking for locations that are in need of the help of 100 - 200 volunteers, and are located within 100 ft of a waterway or coastline. If you have a spot that matches these requirements, feel free to email cleanup@unitedbyblue.com with the specifications. 

    We will take all recommendations into account in November of each year to begin planning the following year’s cleanup locations. If your recommendation is being considered for our following year’s schedule, we will reach out at that time!


    If your city/area isn’t on our schedule, we encourage you to host a community cleanup of your own! You can grab a DIY cleanup kit here, and head out into your community to get cleaning.
