Rivers are the lifeblood of our planet
THE DEVASTATING WASTE PROBLEMS FACING RIVER SYSTEMS AFFECT HUMANS AND WILDLIFE ALIKE - BUT WE CAN CHANGE THEIR FATE TOGETHER
Rivers are Life is a platform created to build a human connection with rivers around the world and inspire action to improve, protect and preserve them. By revealing the beauty and wonder of these waterways and how they impact communities, we hope to raise awareness of the necessity to treat rivers as the valuable resources they are. As a part of our mission to inspire action and raise awareness, we are committed to supporting 1,000 projects positively impacting these vital ecosystems.
The Rise of River Heroes
Rivers are Life supports “River Heroes” across the globe who are at the forefront of solving the pollution and waste issues faced by our planet’s waterways. We are on a mission to fund these champions and amplify their voices to highlight the direct value of rivers to our community ecosystem and the planet’s health.
By highlighting the efforts of these River Heroes and the projects they have undertaken, we seek to raise awareness of water pollution and the commitment to solve the problem at its source upstream. These stories are localized to specific rivers and tied to the pursuit of sustainable river clean-ups and health solutions via science, research, and material and product innovation.
