United By Blue, which sells socially responsible products, will host a free grand opening party for the company’s first brand store in New York City, located at 245 Elizabeth Street, on Friday, June 24 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Food and beverages will be served.

The store, the largest of the company’s four retail shops, offers a complete collection of outdoor-inspired accessories, men’s and women’s apparel, and bags; all of which are thoughtfully sourced and crafted from sustainable fabrics. United by Blue also has two year-round locations in Philadelphia and a seasonal location directly on the ocean in Asbury Park, New Jersey.

“Being based in nearby Philadelphia, we’ve always wanted to have a physical presence in Manhattan,” said founder and president Brian Linton. “We designed the Nolita store to feel like an extension of the outdoors within one of the world’s busiest cities; we brought in a mix of new and reclaimed fixtures, live edge wood shelving, and our signature firewood wall to make people feel like they can kick back and relax.”

For every product sold, United By Blue removes one pound of trash from oceans and waterways through company organized and hosted cleanups. In the last six years alone, United By Blue has removed over 300,000 pounds of trash through a total of 155 cleanups, and in the process mobilized over 4,500 volunteers in 25 states.
