United by Blue is an outdoor and camping goods shop that uses sustainable materials to create their durable products, including uniquely enameled steel camping mugs and organic cotton plaid shirts.
In a powerful form of connecting consumer action to real impact, United by Blue removes one pound of trash from oceans and waterways with every item purchased.
United by Blue has been committed to environmental causes since its start in 2010, hosting its first cleanup the same week it sold its first shirt. Since then, the company has gone on to organize water cleanups in 27 states, removing more than one million pounds of trash. Their Instagram feed was described by Philadelphia Magazine as “more than just a series of photos: it’s a visual love letter to the environment, a tidy grid of wanderlust-inducing beaches, lakes, mountains and forests.”
