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: October 29, 2016
Location: Beach 63rd Street & De Costa Ave, Arverne, NY 11692
Haul: 630 lbs
United By Blue teamed up with The Fat Cardinal Bakery for a cleanup of Jamaica Bay in NYC! Jamaica Bay is wetland estuary, made up of many meadow lands, freshwater ponds, and islands and home to diverse wildlife species. It is a vital environment for both recreation and protective wildlife sanctuaries. Unfortunately, it is littered with trash and debris from neglectful visitors and still showing signs of Hurricane Sandy’s destruction in 2012. With the help of our volunteers, we were able to haul 630 lbs of this trash from the coastline!
