United By Blue Schuylkill River Cleanup – Waterway Cleanups Tour

May 18 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join United By Blue for a community cleanup event at Bartram’s Garden! Help us celebrate our 10th Anniversary Cleanup in the place where we held our very first cleanup as a company by coming out to care for the riverbanks of the Schuylkill River. You’ll have the option to cleanup by foot, in waders, or on SUPs provided by Aqua Vida.

After a morning of cleaning our waterways and outdoor recreation areas, we’ll enjoy complimentary snacks and hear from our partners about the great work they’re doing to keep our waterways clean year-round! We’ll also play cleanup games and have prize giveaways available to volunteers.

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!
