One of The AVENUEinsider’s favorite beauties, Amanda Hearst has collaborated with the line Stewart + Brown in a collaboration for her pet charity Riverkeeper, which keeps our water clean and safe. We love both the photos and the sketches of Amanda.
“Clean drinking water is a basic human right and it’s a shame that for many it is considered a luxury,” says Amanda.  “As a New Yorker, I realize how lucky I am to have access to drinkable water and it is almost entirely due to the efforts of Riverkeeper.  Less than 50 years ago, there were 20 mile stretches of the Hudson considered “dead”.  Today, it is one of the richest bodies of water on earth.  I am so proud to work with an organization who’s immense success in litigating polluters has bettered my life as well as the lives of those around me.  The battle continues, but Riverkeeper will never quit, and for that we are all forever indebted to them.”


We will drink a glass of clean, pure water to that!
