About National River Cleanup®

Clean water keeps the world flowing. That’s why Plow & Hearth is proud to donate $1* for every order placed from November 6-12 to American Rivers the nation’s leading river conservation organization.


American Rivers protects wild rivers, restores damaged rivers, and conserves clean water for people and nature. Since 1973, American Rivers has protected and restored more than 150,000 miles of rivers through advocacy efforts, on-the-ground projects, and an annual America’s Most Endangered Rivers® campaign.

Plow & Hearth is a corporate sponsor of National River Cleanup®.


Rivers flow through our towns, provide clean drinking water, support fish and wildlife, and give us opportunities to fish and paddle, making memories that last a lifetime. That’s why American Rivers launched National River Cleanup® in 1991. National River Cleanup® offers support to individuals, organizations and anyone interested in conducting a cleanup on their local river.
