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: July 18th, 2015
Location: Table Rock State Park, Branson, MO
Haul: 155 lbs.
On a sweltering Missouri morning, a group of volunteers met at the boat launch area of Table Rock Lake State Park for a cleanup along the lake. After a few weeks of flooding, waters still surrounded tree trunks and rocked kayakers on the lake. Our haul for the morning: 155 lbs. Weird trash finds included an old jumprope, a skeleton pen, and full cans of beer. Special thanks to our great volunteers, Dynamic Earth Equipment, Backwoods Outdoor Clothing, the staff at Table Rock Lake State Park and Missouri State Parks system.
