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.

Location: Myrtle Beach, SC
Haul: 71 lbs
That may sound like a small number, but that's a lot of trash for a beach that is constantly cleaned. The weirdest pieces of trash found on Saturday included a small pair of metal tongs and a Sesame Street sand toy. The press stayed just as busy as our hardworking volunteers.
