Environment America

Environment America is an advocacy group that tackles tough environmental problems like global warming, fracking and pollution of our water, air and special places.

Through grassroots campaigns, research reports, news conferences, op-ed pieces, letters to the editor, and more, we’re mobilizing public support for the environment, promoting sensible solutions, and winning tangible results.

The changes Environment America has championed and won in Washington, D.C., and more than 25 states are reducing global warming pollution, creating more solar and wind power, sparing our parks and forests from fracking, keeping beaches, rivers and streams clean, and protecting our wildlife and wild places.

We have affiliates in 29 states, giving us a strong and broad base of grassroots support and action and a track record of local and state victories, all of which have set the stage for even bigger accomplishments on the national level.

Clean water is a core environmental value. Our rivers, lakes and streams are central to nature and our engagement with it. We swim, fish, canoe, kayak or just wonder at the stunning scenery and wildlife around our waterways. They provide us with clean drinking water. We should be doing all we can to protect them. Next year, the Clean Water Act turns 50. Yet we still have billions of gallons of sewage overflows, millions of lead pipes, and thousands of polluters dumping into our waterways.
