Earlier this month, to mark International Day of Action for Rivers, Palm Equipment announced their contribution to the Free Rivers Fund, who will receive an annual donation of 1% of Palm’s profit on all Whitewater PFD sales. Paddlers spend much of their free time in and around rivers, and as such are acutely aware of the constant threat of dam building which affects the few pristine, free flowing rivers we have left. Last year, three groups came together across Europe to share resources and expertise, and help each other in their common cause. Austria’s Wildwasser Erhalten Tirol, the Balkan Rivers Tour, and in Britain, Save Our Rivers (previously Save the Conwy) all continue the fight to save rivers.
Through the Free Rivers Fund, companies can now donate to support river preservation projects like these across Europe.
