Shop for the James

Check out these awesome products!

Here are a few ways your product purchases can go a little further and help us protect and restore the health of the James River.

Paddle Club RVA

The first and only pontoon pedal boat or “Cycleboat” in Virginia’s capital! These social, active adventures are the perfect way for friends, families, and colleagues to sip, cycle, and celebrate out on the water. It’s a great way to enjoy the James River’s natural beauty, and Paddle Club RVA is committed to keeping the James beautiful. The pedal power of the boat paired with solar panels that power the boat’s electrical systems help to make this boating experience a more sustainable activity. Plus – during checkout, they offer the option to make a round-up donation to JRA to support our work. We are thrilled to partner with Paddle Club RVA this summer to fulfill a mutual mission of keeping the river clean and enjoyable for all!

Dickies Seafood

Dickies Seafood, based in Richmond, is back and better than ever after a fire devastated their facility in 2020. We are thrilled that JRA has been selected as their charity beneficiary to receive a portion of sales for the coming year, up to ten thousand dollars! It’s a duo as natural as shrimp and cocktail sauce, given the company’s commitment to sustainability. Head to dickiesrva.com for a list of where you can find their delicious products, and read more about their eco-friendly practices.

The Great Return

Hardywood Park Craft Brewery’s Great Return celebrates the James River Association’s sturgeon restoration efforts. This West Coast style IPA is a great purchase for beer lovers.

Amabile Designs

Shop for beautiful, sustainable, handcrafted bracelets at Amabile Designs!

Made with recycled silver, recycled glass, rescued fishing net, and other nylon waste destined to landfills, part of your purchase not only goes towards supporting small family business owners, but also towards protecting our most precious natural resource – the James River.

Be sure to select the James River Association during step 3 of checkout (under Water Protecting Partners) and enter the code JAMESRIVER for 15% off your purchase!

Sturgeon

Sturgeon is an eco friendly apparel and board manufacturer. Stories passed down through Virginia’s Pamunkey Indian tribe told of children riding a sturgeon as a rite of passage. They were fearless and true pioneers of their time. We still live on this adrenaline and grit- a need to be a part of the water. So whether you are paddleboarding down the James or surfing hurricanes in the Atlantic, “Ride a sturgeon and #EarnYourRiteofPassage” or just grab a tee. We’ll see you out there!
