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 22, 2015
Location: Sunset Lake, Asbury Park, NJ
Haul: 351 lbs.
Over 30 volunteers joined United by Blue in Asbury Park for a delicious breakfast, courtesy of the Sandy Seagull Corner Store , and cleanup of Sunset Lake and park this Saturday, 8/22. After a season of heavy use, the lake and park were in need of serious care. We worked to remove 351 lbs. of trash and recyclables from the lake over two hours. Weird trash finds include a knife and leather sheath, mangled bicycle, pay stub and a baby bottle
