There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market in the United States, most of them put directly into use without testing the long-term consequences for the environment, or their impact on our health.

Environment America is working to protect our health and environment by making polluters pay for the toxic messes they create and eliminating the use of toxic chemicals that make their way into our water, air, communities and homes.

Priorities

Clean water

If we want a greener, healthier world we need to protect our rivers, lakes and streams.

Pesticides

The unnecessary use of pesticides is harming ecosystems and threatening our health.

Toxic threats

It’s up to us to protect our ecosystems and communities from toxic chemicals.
