Take Action: What You Can Do
Small changes can have a huge impact for making the water in our rivers clean. This year is our fifth year of sailing so we’re highlighting 5 ways you can help.
1. Reduce the plastic that ends up in the ocean by avoiding products with microbeads, minimizing your use of single-use plastics and disposing of trash and recycling properly
2. Get involved in your watershed by teaching others about the environment, helping with clean up and monitoring projects and becoming involved on your town planning and zoning boards
3. Maintain an eco-friendly home by selecting green cleaning products, composting, and making your house more energy efficient
4. Create an earth friendly yard by setting your lawn mower on a higher blade setting, growing your own food, reducing your use of pesticides and fertilizers and collecting water in rain barrels and through landscape design
