The Best Time to Make a Difference

While winter may not the preferred season for a lot of people, it is a fantastic time to clean our waterways. Tourism is a huge industry in both local and national waterways, but thousands of people don’t journey here to float the river during the bleak months of winter, so the water, for the most part, stays in the same condition as it was when “River Season” ended in the fall. This means that the river is still holding those thousands of pounds of trash that was brought by tourists and even local river rats, until we clean it up ourselves, of course.

At iCleanWaterways, our favorite time to pick is when no one else is thinking of the icy cold water. For the most part, a whole day of cleanup can be done without a single interruption. A fantastic benefit to this is that while we’re picking up trash, no one is coming right behind us to leave more. This is when the differences can be seen more clearly. This is what motivates us to do what we do.
So, we continue to bundle up in our waders and thick socks, we continue to put on our hats and gloves, and we continue to take as much trash out of our waterways as we can hold. We continue to do all of these things because we want a better suited water shed for our country. Recreational waterways may be far from your mind right now, but when summer days come, we hope that others may be able to see why we care so much and the difference that we have made.
Right now is the best time to start caring. By shopping on our website, sharing our articles, or donating to our cause, you’ll be able to stand up with us against the crimes that are ruining our waterways, you will be making a difference.

iCleanWaterways is a national movement actively removing trash from our springs, creeks, rivers and our many lakes while promoting personal responsibility. Our goal is to eliminate the trash one pound at a time for our children and generations after.
