Clean Water: No Toxics On Tap

Everyone deserves clean water to drink. But across the country, the drinking water of millions of Americans is tainted by toxic chemicals called PFAS, which are linked to cancer and other severe illnesses. One significant source is PFAS in firefighting foam that continues to be used at U.S. military bases despite the availability of safer alternatives. That’s why we’re calling on Congress to require the military to stop using PFAS as soon as possible.

Clean Water & Air

In a greener, healthier world, all of us would treat our air and water as the precious life-giving resources they are, not as dumping grounds for our waste. Environment America takes concrete steps to move us closer to the world we want to live in, from holding illegal water and air polluters accountable to networking local citizens who serve as champions of the local waters they love.

Clean Car Communities

To slow global warming, we need to change what we drive. We’re calling for all new cars and trucks to be electric by 2035. We know our leaders in Washington, D.C., are going the wrong way on this issue. That’s why our Clean Car Communities campaign is urging local and state officials to pave the way.

100% Renewable

Out with the old

We have the power to harness clean, abundant energy from the sun and the wind, and we can do it more efficiently and cheaply than ever before. Yet we’re still producing, consuming and wasting energy in ways that do lasting damage to our environment and our health — fracking for gas near schools instead of putting solar panels on their roofs; drilling for oil near beaches instead of harnessing the winds that blow offshore; and burning coal, oil and gas instead of powering our homes, cars and lives with clean, renewable energy.
