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: June 8th, 2012
Location: Truxtun Park, Annapolis, MD
Haul: 261 lbs
When we first arrived at Truxtun Park in Annapolis, everyone noticed the same thing-this beautiful park was pretty darn clean.
During our Sperry Top-Sider World Oceans Day cleanup, 25 volunteers worked their ways throughout the trails leading up to Spa Creek and pulled out 261 pounds of trash. After the cleanup, UBB crew and volunteers headed to Sperry Top-Sider ’s downtown store (36 Market Space) for a World Oceans Day Happy Hour.
