We’re lucky to be able to work with cool companies who, like us, love bikes, make wonderful products and are committed to the outdoors through their sustainability practices. United by Blue is one that goes above and beyond. Our buyer, Kelly, shares this:
For every product sold, responsible durable goods maker, United by Blue, removes one pound of trash from our world’s ocean and waterways by hosting various company-organized “cleanups”.
In addition, they are a certified B-Corp which means they met the rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency all while providing a standard of excellence in the product they deliver to the end consumer. And speaking of excellent products, we are pleased to offer the United by Blue Bike Trail Tee (in 2 colors!) as a special web-only feature to our cycling community this month. Made in the USA of 100% organic slub cotton, you buy one of these Bike Tees and a pound of trash disappears from one of our water resources.
UBB’s Stats since the beginning (2010):
Number of pounds of trash removed: 995,291
Number of ocean/water clean-ups: 177
Number of States: 26
