Love Your River

Protecting our water resources

Love your River

The ‘Love Your River’ campaign was launched in 2012 to promote the value and benefits of our rivers to our everyday life. 

Love Your River is not just about educating people about the difficulties that many rivers face. It is also recognises the great work local groups already do to look after their rivers - honouring the community spirit and the inspirational individuals who give up their time and energy to improve their local environment. 

What can you do?

On average we use nearly 150 litres of water per person per day and it is easy to forget that our actions have a direct consequence on the health and wellbeing of our local rivers. That is why people are being asked to look at their own lifestyle to see if there are any changes they could make to help our rivers flourish.

If you want to do more...

Attached below is a handy resource pack designed to help river lovers get up close and personal with your local waterway. The handbook explains why we monitor our waterways and how the chemistry of the water and animal life we find there can tell us about the health of our rivers.
