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: April 18th, 2015
Location:Conococheague Creek, Greencastle, PA
Along a beautiful creek in south-central PA, 15 volunteers gathered for what would be in the top three United by Blue hauls to date: over 22,000 lbs. in just three short hours! This part of the Conococheague Creek runs through private property, which has been the unfortunate dumping site of over 300 tires and countless televisions (really, there were an alarming number) over the past ten years. With the help of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful, the local land owners' friends, and our outstanding volunteers, United by Blue was able to clean up much of the creek, which feeds into the Potomac River.
