United By Blue Philosophy

January 08, 2016

With the turn of the new year, this graphic that explains United By Blue's philosophy provides a vision of the world we want to live in.

This provides us a perfect opportunity to talk about the materials that go into making UBB clothes and handbags. See how they think seriously about watershed sustainability.

Organic cotton
Prevents chemical fertilizers and pesticides from draining into oceans and waterways.

Recycled polyester
Made from recycled plastic bottles.

Tencel
Made from the natural cellulose found in wood pulp. The fiber is economical in its use of energy and natural resources and fully biodegradable.

Check out our collection of United By Blue products at the Good Buy. And remember, each purchase helps to removed one pound of trash from U.S. waterways (over 250,000 pounds to date!).
