Philadelphia, PA (December 4, 2015) – United By Blue, an innovator and leader in socially responsible business practices and products, is delighted to announce the company’s first brand store in New York City will be open from December 7 – January 17th at Seaport Studios in Lower Manhattan. Open for business through the holidays, United By Blue will maintain the concept shop in a revitalized area of one of Manhattan’s oldest neighborhoods.

Seaport Studios offers a unique retail experience with a rotating roster of independent brands featured through storewide takeovers, installations and events. With two retail locations of their own in Philadelphia and a seasonal location in Asbury Park, NJ, United By Blue will present classic store experience complete with a wide collection of uniquely crafted accessories, apparel, and bags.

“Being based in Philadelphia, everyone here at United By Blue loves the idea of having a physical presence in Manhattan.” said company Founder and President Brian Linton, “The United By Blue pop-up at Seaport Studios is a great way for us to test the waters in a market where we would eventually like to have a permanent store. We look forward to seeing how NYC responds to our responsible, durable goods.”

United By Blue is a Certified B-Corp that pledges to remove one pound of trash from a river or ocean for every product the company sells. In the last 5 years alone, United By Blue has removed over a quarter million pounds of trash through a total of 141 cleanups, and in the process mobilized over 4,500 volunteers in 24 states. In spring 2015 United By Blue was recognized as one of the top businesses nationally in advancing positive community impact. Most recently the company was named by Outside Magazine as one of America’s Best Places to Work based on the company’s high marks in a survey that measured factors such as encouraging employees to lead an active lifestyle, eco-conscious business practices, and giving back to the community.
