Our rivers and streams are polluted, and most of it is from microplastics. The International Day of Action for Rivers is a day to celebrate victories not just of dam removal projects and river restoration. It's a day to foster action to clean up and demand improvements in the policies and practices of decision makers. It is a day to educate one another about the threats facing our rivers, and learn about better water and energy solutions. Above all, it is a day to unite—by acting together, we demonstrate that these issues are not merely local, but global in scope.
