The Riverhead Project was recently recognized by Greenpeace International as one of the most promising new organized group concerned with the environment and environmental issues plaguing the world today. With the young group of environmental watchdogs, The Riverhead Project has aggressively pushed the initiatives of the group in conjunction with the campaign of Greenpeace in the global stage.
With the strong leadership that governs them, The Riverhead Project are hell-bent on turning around the negative effects of global warming and reverse the cycle of environmental degradation which has been plaguing the planet in the wake of the industrial revolution. This revolution left a trail of denuded forest, depleted natural resources, polluted rivers, lakes and waterways, the extinction of some animal species and many other unacceptable aftermath which is detrimental to our ecosystem.
With the young group focusing on cleaning up the rivers, there is a concerted effort to maintaining a balanced ecosystem of rivers, which could mean food security for future generations, and a thriving river water ecosystem teeming with all sorts of fresh water fish and other creatures whose home has always been the river.
River by river, they hope to clean up all the trash and unwanted matter now contaminating the rivers so that most, if not all of the rivers in the world will get the treatment they deserve. And each little step that we take towards this goal is a big help to our main agenda.
In an email sent by Greenpeace, they praise the initiative we have taken towards cleaning rivers, and congratulate us for doing an outstanding job in promoting environmental consciousness, which should be emulated by everyone.
Tim Folger, the CEO of The Riverhead Project, sat down with BBC Senior Correspondent David Batten and spoke with him at length about their initiatives.
“I feel honoured that a major organizations such as Greenpeace took notice of what we are trying to achieve here in our little neck of the woods,” Folger says. “The mere fact that they notice our activity at all, is a testament to the sincerity of their group to give credit where credit is due.”
He goes on to say, “This kind of citation gives us the motivation to continue what we have began. Our journey is in the hopes that one day all of our rivers would become clean again. Once we have achieved that, then we can say that we have really achieved something worthwhile that will benefit the entire Earth population.”
