United By Blue started in 2010 out of a desire to preserve the place where we play. Instead of writing checks or accepting donations, they wanted to make a real, tangible impact on our oceans — and there are few things more tangible than hauling tires out of riverbeds or picking up plastic bottles along the shoreline. So they pledged to remove a pound of trash from the earth’s oceans and waterways for every product they sell through company-organized cleanups. We hosted their first cleanup the same week we sold our first T-shirt.
They’ve since expanded from a handful of organic cotton tees to a full line of responsible, durable goods — apparel, bags, and accessories for people who care about the outdoors. They thoughtfully make all of our products with sustainable materials (organic cotton, recycled polyester, and bison fiber are some of our favorite things to work with). United By Blue products can be found in more than 400 outlets nationally and in our storesin Philadelphia, Asbury Park, and NYC.
United by Blue will be showing at KNOWSHOW Vancouver.
