On Saturday, June 16, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., United By Blue and Outdoor Sports Center will host a cleanup along the banks of Five Mile River in Norwalk.

Volunteers should meet in the parking lot of Norwalk Community College, West Campus, Richards Avenue at West Cedar Street. United By Blue and Outdoor Sports Center will provide volunteers with everything they need for an exciting day of giving back: gloves, trash bags, bug spray, coffee, water, and one-of-a-kind clean up competitions.

"Beach and waterway cleanups around the country are the DNA of our company," said Brian Linton, Chief Trash Collector and Founder. "Our retail partners like Outdoor Sports Center and their fellow community members are the key building blocks to protecting our waterways while looking good in our organic t-shirts." 

United By Blue is an ocean-friendly brand of apparel that removes one pound of trash from ocean and waterways for every product sold. Since its creation in 2010, United By Blue has removed over 115,000 pounds of trash from ocean and waterways, both right here in our backyard of Philadelphia and around the world in places like Taiwan.

“At Outdoor Sports Center, so many of our products are geared towards the water and ocean adventures,” said Scott Maxwell of Outdoor Sports Center. “It only makes sense for us to play a part in giving back to the waterways that we love. Teaming up with United By Blue for a trash cleanup gives us the opportunity to do just that”.

Outdoor Sports Center is a specialty outfitter providing to Fairfield County’s most adventurous souls. From skiing and snowboarding to canoeing and climbing, Outdoor Sports Center has sold top-of-the-line gear and apparel for the past 50 years. The store is located at 80 Danbury Road in Wilton, CT.
