Who we are
There’s something special about our country — and so much worth protecting and preserving for future generations. From stunning waterways like Chesapeake Bay and the Great Lakes, to beloved national parks like Acadia and Mount Rainier, America’s natural wonders enrich our lives in countless ways.
But too often powerful industries and shortsighted politicians stand in the way of meaningful action on some of the most urgent issues facing our environment today, from global warming to clean water. Defending our environment requires sustained independent research, tough-minded advocacy and spirited grassroots action.
That’s the idea behind Environment America. Together with more than a million supporters from all walks of life, we take the kind of action that wins tangible results for our environment.

What we do
Funded by supporters like you, we research the challenges confronting our environment and educate the public about what’s at stake. Through our research reports, news conferences, interviews with reporters, op-ed pieces, letters to the editor and more, we raise awareness of environmental issues and promote sensible solutions. Our canvassers meet people where they are — in public places or door to door — raising awareness, recruiting new supporters and activists, and securing funds to support our work.
When decisions are being made about our environment, our elected officials hear plenty from oil companies, developers and other powerful interests. We make sure that they hear your voice just as loudly. We make the case for our environment and help people like you make an impact — through petitions, emails, letters, phone calls and more, all delivered to the right people just when it matters most.

Putting your support to work
Keep the Clean Water Act working. Thanks to your action and support, President Obama restored Clean Water Act protections for drinking water sources used by 1 in 3 Americans. But within hours, polluters unleashed a flood of lawsuits, putting on hold the new protections we just won for thousands of waterways and wetlands across the country. Your support is necessary to keep the Clean Water Act working for all our waters.
Reduce global warming pollution. You helped win the single largest step the United States has ever taken to fight climate change! The Clean Power Plan will place the first-ever limits on global warming pollution from dirty power plants. But polluters and climate-deniers have fought the plan every step of the way, and aren’t giving up now. Neither are we — and your support will help ensure congressional leaders don’t kill the Clean Power Plan before it has a chance to work.
Help America go solar. More of us are going solar, meeting our energy needs in a way that’s clean, local and independent. But dirty energy companies keep putting up new roadblocks. Help advocate for more pro-solar policies, and put us on the road to 100% clean energy.
