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: July 7th, 2015
Location: Penn Treaty Park, Philadelphia, PA
Haul: 465.5 lbs.
United By Blue and a crew of 40 volunteers met at Penn Treaty Park for a cleanup of the Delaware River and park. Sparkler shells were abundant; no surprise, as we visited right after the 4th of July holiday. Among the weird trash found: a suitcase, "How Not To Date" book, leg brace, warped bike and puzzle pieces. Little Baby's Ice Cream scooped up chocolate, bourbon-bourbon vanilla and coconut-lime (dairy free!) ice cream treats to help beat the July heat! Special thanks to all of our volunteers, including groups from Wawa and [2 one 5] creative.
