Delaware River Cleanup @ Frankford Boat Launch

Event Description

Please join United By Blue for a fun-filled Community Cleanup Event by volunteering to clean up your local waterway.

The focus of the day will be cleaning up litter and debris from the shoreline of Philadelphia's own Delaware River. This could include the removal of items as large as tires and abandoned household furniture to as small as pesky microplastics and ever-abundant snack packaging; all cleaned up with the overarching goal of stopping it from leaching into or physically entering the watershed, which in this case, includes the Delaware River!

United By Blue is a sustainable lifestyle brand with a one-for-one mission to clean our worlds blue spaces and keep them clean for future generations to come. This means for every one item we sell, we vow to remove one pound of trash from an ocean, coastline, or waterway - with a whopping 4 million pounds (and counting!) removed to-date.

This waterway cleanup event is in partnership with the Philadelphia Water Department, Riverfront North, and The Academy of Natural Sciences in their own efforts to support the growing need for environmental preservation and restoration through community engagement.

All cleanup participants will receive a thoughtfully crafted gift to carry their sustainability efforts into daily life, as well as complimentary snacks and refreshments for their volunteerism.
