for every product sold, united by blue removes one pound of trash from our world's oceans and waterways
We created United By Blue with the idea that a successful outdoor brand can do serious conservation work. This means everyone here at United By Blue is rolling up their sleeves and removing plastic bottles, styrofoam, tires, old appliances, you name it from creeks, rivers, beaches, and streams. We organize and host cleanups to make a measurable impact on the most pressing of environmental problems: ocean trash and plastics pollution.Learn More About Cleanups
We're All For Getting Out More
We believe that products designed for enjoying the outdoors should also be kind to the outdoors. We put a lot of thought into the materials that make up each piece and always opt for textiles that keep our oceans, air and soil a little cleaner. Check out some of our favorite materials below.
Made of plastic bottles that too often wind up in our waterways. Plastic bottles alone make up 1.5 tons of plastic waste annually.
Produced without using any of the pesticides that often wind up draining into our oceans and waterways.
A natural and renewable resource (since sheep are shorn annually). Since wool is biodegradable, it’s much gentler to the environment than oil-based synthetics.
we think for-profits should be for the environment, too
We’re a certified B-Corp, which means we’re part of an awesome group of for-profit companies that meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. We decided to go for the B-Corp certification for two reasons: The first was to set a standard of excellence in the product we deliver our customers. The second was to become a member of a supportive community of businesses that have similar economic, social, and environmental aspirations.
We’re really proud of the efforts we made to earn a B-Corp certification. In addition to our pledge to remove one pound of trash for every product sold, we hold our suppliers to specific environmental standards, offer our employees paid time off for community service, and over 75 percent of our office supplies are made from recycled content.
