Our 1% Goes to Riverkeeper, Here’s Why.

“20% of industrial fresh water pollution comes from textile treatment and dyeing.” – World Bank

.

That fact is enough to make anyone understand why Anthony & Céleste Lilore chose to donate their 1% for the Planet dollars to Riverkeeper.  However, there was so much more behind their decision.

.

How did you choose which organization to give your 1% to?

.

RESTORE™Clothing: We live along the Hudson River.  We see it everyday, we exercise by it, it is both our source of sanity in New York City and our connection to nature.  We were looking for a way to get engaged with the community, keeping in mind that we’re an indie start-up – we’re small.  Since we are part of an industry that adds to pollution, we wanted to do something to counteract that.  We identified an important cause (water pollution) and organization that was making a difference and began to volunteer for them – Riverkeeper.  Once we really got to know them and their initiatives, we knew we had the right fit.

.

Riverkeeper’s Mission Statement: “to protect the ecological integrity of the Hudson River and its tributaries, and to safeguard the drinking water supply of 9 million New Yorkers.  Riverkeeper is an independent, member-supported environmental organization founded on the premise that citizens themselves must roll up their sleeves to defend our waterways.”  The team and their volunteers work to stop polluters, protect river ecology, and safeguard drinking water.  They run a “Drink Tap Water” campaign and support policy solutions such as Clean Energy, Clean Water Protection and Flood Prevention Act, and the Clean Water Restoration Act of 2007.
