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.

United By Blue, Philadelphia Parks and Recreation and Philadelphia Water returned to Penn Treaty Park for a cleanup of the Delaware River with Honeygrow! Penn Treaty park is a treasured greenspace in Philadelphia and a great place for picnics, dogs and fisherman alike! This popular park was in much need our attention as the trash piled up. Thanks to our 100 volunteers, we were able to cleanup 2,827. 5 lbs of trash from the park. We found things like old wooden boards, plastic bags and straws, other household waste, a lot of fishing line.
