Why is clean water important to you?
Do you and your family have a favorite river or lake? Are you worried about protecting our drinking water? Whatever your reason, the EPA needs to hear it — and soon.
Through Environment America, thousands of citizen members are teaming up with a professional staff to stand up for the places we love and the environmental values we share.
Big victory! California is the first state to ban single-use plastic bags, thanks in large part to the work of our state affiliate in California. When this law goes into effect in July 2015, we’ll take billions of plastic bags out of our environment. That means cleaner rivers and a safer future for sea turtles and other Pacific wildlife. In 2013, the number of communities banning plastic disposable bags—the kind that often wash into the sea and harm sea birds and other marine animals—surpassed 100, thanks in part to the advocacy and organizing of our state affiliates across the country.
