United by Blue teamed up with Klean Kanteen and ChicoBag for a cleanup of Big Chico Creek and the surrounding park. Under a clear sky and bright sun, over 65 volunteers worked along the creek and park, picking up recyclables, household waste and a variety of weird trash, including a message in a [wine] bottle, a book of poetry, and jean shorts. At the heart of these three companies is a commitment to waterway and land conservation and reducing human reliance on single-use plastics. This cleanup is a manifestation of Klean Kanteen, Chico Bag and United by Blue's missions.
