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 19th, 2016
Location:Riverside Park, New York, NY
Haul: 280 lbs.New York's Riverside Park provides millions of New Yorkers with valuable environmental programming. For many urban youth, Riverside Park is their first introduction to nature and connection to the Hudson River, so we decided to tackle the park for our first ever NYC cleanup! We discovered an abandoned urine sample, driftwood, plenty of plastic, and several discarded boots along the rocky shoreline. Huge thanks to all the volunteers who came out to help make this park a little cleaner for all Upper West Siders.
