United By Blue believes that every living creature is united by the blue of our world's oceans and waterways and we all have the responsibility to protect them. UBB believes that as a for-profit business they have the power to help heal our oceans. By associating each product sold with the removal of one pound of trash from waterways, they unite their beliefs with their business. They do not write checks. They do not accept donations. They fulfill our pledge through company-organized and hosted cleanups. [+]
United By Blue strives to rise above and become more than a mere clothing brand. Following their passion for the oceans and waterways that connect the world, United By Blue reinvests their own time and energy and dedicates their own effort into cleanups that remove a pound of trash from watersheds or the ocean for each product sold.
The United By Blue collection brings together a full collection of men's and women's gear designed for and inspired by the trail. Plaid button-up shirts draw inspiration from timeless kits, created for hard travel from town to camp. A versatile bottoms collection utilizes durable twill for long-wearing pants and lightweight synthetics that allow boardshorts to transition from swimming to stream-crossing trails without missing a beat. Durable twill jackets wear well from trailhead to summit while fleece vests and jackets provide the core warmth you demand for long-distance backpack trips. For the women's line, fine jersey knits lend effortless comfort to a variety of skirts and maxi dresses for base camp relaxation.
In addition to their dedication to mitigating mankind's direct impact on the environment, United By Blue additionally brings that same focus back around to their clothing. Using third party-approved organic cotton to craft soft, jersey-knit T-shirts, durable, lasting duck canvas, and classic twills and finely woven, recycled polyester fabrics, they continuously reaffirm their dedication to the world in which we all live.
By committing to the extra effort it takes to do the right thing, putting boots to the ground instead of words into the air, United By Blue proves their commitment to responsible action. Show your own commitment with your actions and your wardrobe and join the #bluemovement.
