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: March 24th, 2015
Location: Bartram's Garden, Philadelphia
Haul: 170 lbs.
We kicked off our first cleanup of the 2015 season where it all began, 6 years ago, at Bartram's Garden along the Schuylkill River. Braving the chilly wind, volunteers picked up 170 lbs. of trash over two hours. The weirdest finds of the evening: a unique fishing hook, numchuk handle and a single flip-flop.
