Wildlife Over Waste

Every day people are throwing away tons of single-use cups, containers and other plastic “stuff.” Nothing we use for a few minutes should be allowed to pollute our oceans and rivers and threaten wildlife for centuries. That’s why we’re calling on state leaders to take action on single-use plastic pollution.

Trouble in the Air

Tropical Forest Protection

To save endangered species, we must protect the world’s tropical forests. Doing so will also help stabilize our climate. We’re doing our part by urging companies to commit to stop cutting down these great forests—a commitment known as zero-deforestation. Many of the companies that harvest and use palm oil have already agreed to make this commitment. Now we’re focusing on the beef and soybean supply chain.

Together, we make a difference

At Environment America and each of our 29 state groups, our staff work together for clean air, clean water, clean energy, wildlife, open spaces and a livable climate. Our members put grassroots support behind our research and advocacy. We stand up for the environment. Your support makes it possible. 

The True Value of Solar

The Great American Outdoors Act

From the Grand Canyon to local hiking trails, our public lands are a big part of what makes this country so great. These wild forests, mountains, lakes and prairies are home to important ecosystems and wildlife. They’re where we go to spend time outdoors with our families and friends to hike, bike, fish and see wildlife.
For most Americans, the idea that we’ve found some places so special, sacred even, that we made sure they would be protected forever, is one of our proudest achievements. And with the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), we’ve been able to do just that.

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 national organization's Clean Water Network has connected these local heroes with each other, uniting over 250 local and regional watershed groups around the country so they can be more effective champions for clean water.

Support that wins results

Support from our members makes it possible to win results that make a real difference at the local, state and federal level. Meet a few of the many supporters who are part of our team.
