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 2nd, 2016
Location:Randall's Island, 10 Central Rd., New York, NY 10035
Haul: 869 lbs
United By Blue teamed up with REI and Randall's Island Park Alliance for a cleanup of Randall's Island/ Ward's Island. The surrounding waterways consist of salt marshes and freshwater wetlands which provide a precious habitat for wildlife and a large variety of recreation areas for sports, concerts, biking and running. With help of 70 volunteers, we were able to haul 869 lbs of trash from the shoreline including a crab trap, folding chair, and a giant block of Styrofoam.
