Join United By Blue for a community cleanup of Poquessing Creek! In celebration of city-wide initiative Philly Spring Cleanup, we’ll meet at the Philadelphia Mills Mall and clean the banks of Poquessing Creek. As a tributary of the Delaware River, we’ll be preventing highway trash from flowing further downstream and into the ocean.
After a morning of cleaning our waterways and outdoor recreation areas, we’ll enjoy complimentary snacks and hear from the Philadelphia Water Dept. and Friends of Poquessing Watershed about the great work they’re doing to keep our waterways clean year-round! Prize giveaways provided by REI Co-op and United By Blue.
Help us bring our mission of removing a pound of trash from waterways for every product we sell to life by joining us for this cleanup. We’ll provide cleanup supplies, water and reusable water bottles, and snacks. You bring sturdy shoes, long pants, and your friends!
