Plans to protect air and water, wilderness and wildlife are in fact plans to protect man
Last Saturday, UBB, Subaru, and 107 volunteers removed 6,614 pounds of trash in just a few hours from the banks of the Cooper River. Click here for the full album.
“The UBB team is an eclectic group of people that have a shared passion for what we are trying to accomplish on both the business and environmental fronts. We all believe in the power of UBB to create real and lasting change for the world and love being part of something we can be proud to call our creation. The teamwork and camaraderie of the team is what makes United By Blue an effective business and strong environmental organization.”

Friends tell friends about UBB Cleanups!
We’re looking for contemporary explorers. We’re looking for those of you who climb higher, go farther, look deeper, and drive harder. Those who seek out adventure in the every day and on forays into the unknown.
ARE WE LOOKING FOR YOU?
We’re looking for explorers who hike, climb, paddle, row, surf, swim, cycle, run, or walk. We’re looking for explorers who share ideas, tell stories, snap photos, make movies, or simply observe. We’re looking for explorers who travel the world or and explore their home city. So long as you get outside and explore.
Last week, we held our first cross-county cleanup with our newest partner-Levi’s.
This apparel pioneer shares our commitment to volunteerism and our mission to conserve our world’s waterways. On Community Day, Levi’s employees and executives from around the world join together for a day of giving back. The Bay Area alone had 32 projects, including a cleanup of the Damon Slough, a wetland that feeds into the San Leandro Bay, with United By Blue.
Together, UBB and 60 Levi’s team members removed 1,321 pounds of trash from Damon’s Slough, which was named one of the top five littered waterways in the Bay Area in 2012. Our weird trash collection included a pregnancy test, a shot gun handle, a baby walker, rattan chair, and British Passport.
