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 24th, 2015
Location:Cooper River, Pennsauken, NJ
Subaru of America, Inc. volunteers joined United by Blue for an annual cleanup of the Cooper River. Employees removed 920 lbs. of trash from the river and Cooper Park, including a variety of weird objects: an animal skull, various bones, payphone, bike, toy and doll dress, and a creepy doll. This is the fourth year in a row that Subaru and United by Blue have teamed up to clean the Cooper, bringing the total amount of trash collected together across the United States in 11 cleanups to 52,745 lbs.
Special thanks to Gaetano's of Cherry Hill , GoMacro Macrobars , and Camden County, NJ for their support.
