Responsible Business Network

Norwalk River Watershed Association
Kayak For A Cause, an event supported by local businesses that raised money for NRWA and other non-profits.
Over 400 businesses with over 30,000 employees surround the Norwalk River, which parallels Route 7 from Danbury to Norwalk.

We developed the Responsible Business Network to promote responsible business practices near the river and to acknowledge those businesses that lead the way in protecting our natural resources.

As a Business Supporter, your company will be recognized on our website, in our newsletter and on our Facebook page as a responsible business in the community.

We invite you to join us in our important work. Your contribution can go a long way toward making our programs and projects possible. NRWA works to improve the water quality and quality of life in the watershed where your business thrives and your customers and employees live. Thanks to the participation of our many friends and volunteers, and to pledges from responsible businesses, NRWA can initiate and sustain efforts in research, education, land protection, and recreational opportunities to improve the quality of life and water in the region.

Please consider completing the Company Environmental Pledge and emailing it to or printing it out and mailing it to NRWA, PO Box 197, Georgetown, CT 06829.
We are eager to showcase responsible businesses and are open to suggestions for cooperative efforts to improve the watershed. Depending on what works for your company and employees, we would be happy to plan volunteer river cleanups, invasive plant species removal projects, and/or riparian buffer planting projects.


NRWA also works with members to bring speakers who are experts on the Norwalk River and the surrounding watershed to business events. We have recently held talks on the water quality of the river, the migration cycle of the American Eel (which swims up the Norwalk River), the local owl population, and the history of Micah mining in the area. If you are interested in working together, e-mail us at or call us at 877-NRWA-INFO.

A grant from REI Norwalk allowed NRWA to plant nine native trees along
the Norwalk River Valley Trail at Union Park in Norwalk.
