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: August 20th, 2016
Location: City of Cuernavaca Park, Denver, CO
Haul: 309 lbs.
We visited the perpetually beautiful city of Denver on Saturday for a cleanup of the S. Platte River, a vital water source for many Denver residents. A group of dedicated volunteers worked throughout the morning to clean hundreds of pounds of trash from the river and Cuernavaca Park. Plastic, styrofoam and lots of clothing were recovered, along with a number of weird trash finds. Some submissions included a full outfit of clothing, a notebook filled with writing, the Bible and a water noodle.
Special thanks to all of our wonderful volunteers, REI , Denver Parks and Recreation , The Greenway Foundation , Denver Beer Co and Klean Kanteen for their support!
