United By Blue Cleanup - Washington DC

 

Join United By Blue for a community cleanup event in Rock Creek Park in celebration of World Oceans Day! 

We'll spend the morning cleaning the trails and creek banks in this historic National Park. Following the cleanup, volunteers can enjoy a complimentary lunch provided by Luke's Lobster.

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!

This cleanup is held in participation with Capitol Hill Ocean Week.
