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: September 1st, 2015
Location: Pennypack Park, Philadelphia, PA
Haul: 144 lbs.
United by Blue joined the DRCC in preserving one of Philadelphia's best kept secrets: Pennypack Park. Volunteers picked up 144 lbs of trash. Unfortunately, much of the trash included small pieces of plastic and metal, as well as lots of recyclables. Weird trash finds included a printer/scanner and fully intact religious shrine. Special thanks to the Delaware River City Corporation ,GoMacro Macrobars, and our wonderful volunteers, including members from the Youth Volunteer Corps.
