River Action is a UK-based environmental campaigning body committed to addressing the severe problem of river pollution.
Our rivers are facing an existential crisis. An overwhelming body of recent evidence confirms that virtually all of the UK’s rivers are polluted beyond legal limits – with many facing severe environmental challenges. Along with sewage discharges from the water companies, run offs from intensive agriculture is widely acknowledged as one of the principal causes of this crisis.
River Action is a campaigning organisation whose purpose is to apply direct pressure on the food industry and other polluters to take responsibility for the environmental integrity of their industrial processes and that of their various supply chains.
