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: August 5, 2014
Location: Penn Treaty Park, Philadelphia, PA
United By Blue and a crew of more than 30 volunteers gathered in Fishtown's bustling Penn Treaty Park to comb the Delaware River bank for trash, treasures and the promise of delicious ice cream for a hard evening's work. Among the weird trash found: an animal skull, a chain link fence, plastic baby toys and a harmonica. Little Baby's Ice Cream generously donated a tub of refreshingly sweet ice cream treats to help beat the 90-degree heat!
