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: May 23rd, 2015
Location: Ashbridge's Bay Park on Lake Ontario, Canada
For the first time in United by Blue history, we traveled to Canada for a cleanup in Toronto along Lake Ontario. Sunny skies and cool temperatures created the perfect environment to celebrate the 2015 apparel collaboration with Roots Canada. Over 20 Roots employees worked with UBB to clean Ashbridge's Bay Park and Lake Ontario. Special thanks to the City of Toronto and Live Green Toronto for their support.
