Yep, you heard right. Buy clothing from sustainable apparel brand Recover Brands, which prioritizes reducing, reusing, and recycling, and you can also help support Catawba Riverkeeper, a Southeastern non-profit water advocacy organization helping preserve the Catawba River.

Recover just dropped a limited-edition collection in partnership with Catawba Riverkeeper, the only nonprofit, on-the-water advocate for the entire 8,900 miles of waterways in the Catawba-Wateree River Basin, for an LTE design in a few cuts and colors and will be giving 20% back on all sales to support Catwaba’s River CleanUp series.

Voice of the River

Catawba Riverkeeper provides accurate, science-based information about the region’s water and the issues affecting it, via a network including diverse community members, engaged volunteersa representative board, and staff whose dedication of time, talent and resources protect and enhance the river. Aptly named “The Hardest Working River in America,” the Catawba flows through 26 counties in North and South Carolina and provides drinking water for more than 2 million residents and generates electricity for nearly 3 million residents.

Catawba Riverkeeper acts as the voice of the river and the residents who care about it. Its efforts include patrolling the waterways in the basin and reporting violations of local, state, and federal water quality regulations, conducting water and sediment sampling to test for contaminants and reporting those to the public through programs like Swim Guide. It also meets with elected officials and government staff to educate them on the challenges the river faces and working with them to develop further safeguards for its waterways. As evidenced by its Earth Month cleanups, it also works to preserve the waterway through programs that mitigate plastics and other litter, conducting major tactical clean-ups on hard-to-reach areas, and stream and shoreline restoration projects with for profit and non-profit partners. It also hosts citizen science programs such as Water Watcher, and letter writing and public comment opportunities to speak on behalf of the regional waters.
