Wildlife Over Waste

Every day, people are throwing away tons of single-use cups, containers and other plastic “stuff.” Among the worst forms of plastic pollution is polystyrene foam (the stuff most of us call Styrofoam), which never fully degrades. Nothing we use for a few minutes should be allowed to pollute our oceans and rivers and threaten wildlife for centuries.

The Clean Water Network

The people who take action to clean up and protect our rivers, lakes and streams need all the help they can get. Since 2014, our Clean Water Network has connected these local heroes with each other, uniting more than 250 local and regional watershed groups around the country so they can be more effective champions for clean water.

Go Big On Offshore Wind

Thanks in part to our research and action, the nation’s first offshore wind farm is now in operation, three miles off the Rhode Island coast. But it’s just the beginning.

 

Developing the wind areas already approved off the Atlantic Coast could power 6 million homes. But, unlocking more of offshore wind power’s potential depends in large part on America’s Atlantic Seaboard states and their governors.

Get the Lead Out

Medical experts estimate that more than 24 million American kids will lose IQ points due to lead exposure. Our research finds many of these kids will be exposed to lead in their schools’ drinking water. That’s why we’re working to Get the Lead Out.
