For every product sold, United By Blue removes one pound of trash from our world's oceans and waterways.
We created this company because we wanted to make a bigger, more measurable impact on our oceans and encourage people to do the same. So we stopped simply writing checks and started organizing and hosting these cleanups. We wanted to do our part to clean the waterways ourselves.
That’s also why we take the care to create products that use responsible materials (like recycled polyester, which reuses plastic bottles so they won’t wind up in gyres). If you’d like to help, we’d love to see you at our next cleanup.

Self-taught printmaker Aftyn Shah may be better known by the moniker Rise + Wander, a name that doubles as a personal reminder to get up and go outside. She first came to printmaking after a traumatic car accident compelled her to leave her corporate job, move away from the city, and revisit two of her oldest loves — art and the outdoors — to aid in her recovery. When she’s not exploring green spaces for solace and inspiration, she’s experimenting with new textures and techniques in her suburban Philadelphia home studio. Each hand-pressed, hand-carved piece she creates serves as her ode to the outdoors.
