  • Sperry Top-Sider and UBB Removed 3,602 Pounds of Trash From Jamaica Bay

    Location: Gateway National Recreation Area, Canarsie Pier Brooklyn NY | Date: April 14, 2012

    Sperry Top-Sider just arrived in the Big Apple and its newest store can be found at 103 Fifth Avenue (between 17th and 18th Sts). In honor of their March housewarming party, Sperry Top-Sider and United By Blue hosted a cleanup of Canarsie Pier Beach in Brooklyn.

    Every time we head to Brooklyn, we pick up a massive amount of trash. On the 14th, volunteers picked up 3,602 pounds of trash in just a few hours. During the first 10 minutes of the cleanup, our volunteers were able to pick up 1,067 pounds of litter during our trash regatta race. Our weirdest trash items included a doll head, a knife, a skateboard, a candlestick and glass holder, a large boat rope, a toy horse, a bike frame, a traffic cone and the bottom of a platform shoe.
