RIVER STAR BUSINESSES

Without the help of our River Star Businesses, improving the health of the Elizabeth River would be impossible. We work hard to help businesses find the grants, expertise and resources they need to reduce toxic pollution, improve flood control, and restore crucial wetlands and wildlife habitat. Facilities with significant opportunities to reduce pollution, restore or conserve habitat will benefit the most. Document voluntary results for peer review. Great for public recognition and employee morale. And Do Something Beautiful, too.
