Care for Oceans and Waterways with United By Blue

August 13, 2014

Driven by the idea of associating the sale of each product with a concrete environmental action, United By Blue (UBB) was founded in 2010. For every product sold, UBB removes one pound of trash from oceans and waterways through company-organized and hosted cleanups. To date, UBB has removed 176,620 pounds of trash through 108 cleanups in 21 states. Add your name to the growing list of thousands of volunteers to assist in upcoming cleanups around the country. Can't make it this time? You can still help by purchasing UBB products from the Good Buy.
