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.
SIGN UP FOR A CLEANUP
Date: September 19, 2015
Location: Brandywine Creek, Wilmington, DE
Haul: 1,940 lbs.
With the help of over 100 volunteers, Subaru of America, Inc. , STATE & UNION , Trail Creek Outfitters and the First State National Historical Park , we reached our quarter million pound milestone! We've been travelling across the country for 5 years, across 23 states and with the help of close to 5,000 volunteers, have cleaned over 250,000 lbs. from oceans and waterways. At the Brandywine Creek, we removed 1,940 lbs. of trash and debris from the water and surrounding land. Weird trash finds included a pile of forgotten shoes, wallet, hubcap, rollerblade, lots of underwear, wood flooring, and much, much more.
Special thanks to 1-800-GOT-JUNK for the donated trash and recycling removal service as well as Hot Spot Pizza for our great lunch.
