United By Blue supplies ocean-inspired apparel for the Subaru Gear catalog. This Subaru partner operates with an environmental twist: For every product that United By Blue sells, it removes one pound of trash from oceans and waterways through cleanups.
The United By Blue
philosophy is that we all depend on our oceans and that it’s our responsibility to protect them.
This complements the environmental philosophy of Subaru of America, Inc., which is committed to being a leader in environmental initiatives while continuing to reduce its own footprint.
