250,000 Pounds

October 22, 2015 1 Comment

Congratulations are in order: United By Blue (UBB), one of our awesome vendors, reached a significant milestone. After five years, they have collected over 250,000 pounds of trash from U.S. waterways by organizing close to 5,000 volunteers for 140 cleanups in over 23 states!

UBB set out in 2010 with a simple but meaningful approach to conservation. For every product sold, groups of volunteers would remove one pound of trash from the world's oceans and waterways.
