  • Tell City Council President Wesson: Let the City Council vote on campaign finance!

    With its public campaign finance program, Los Angeles is already a leader in the fight to get Big Money out of politics. But City Council President Herb Wesson won't allow a full City Council vote on a measure that will make it even stronger!

    Tell the L.A. City Council President: Allow a full City Council vote!

  • Tell Bayer: Stop selling bee-killing pesticides!

  • Tell the EPA to restrict bee-killing pesticides!

    Bees are responsible for one in three bites of food we eat, so we can’t afford to keep losing them. The EPA has the power to help bring back bee populations by restricting the use of bee-toxic pesticides. But it needs to hear from you, not just pesticide companies like Bayer and Syngenta!

    Sign the petition demanding action on bee-killing pesticides!

  • Tell the USDA: Improve the lives of organic farm animals!

    The USDA is trying to improve the lives of animals on organic farms. It proposed a rule to make sure these animals have enough space and can spend time outside. This is a big step forward for animals -- but the rule could be even stronger.

  • Tell DFA: Say NO to dirty palm oil!

    Dimensional Fund Advisors manages funds for many city and state governments across the U.S. And it has hundreds of millions of dollars invested in dirty palm oil companies. 

    As institutions that serve the public good, local and state governments have a responsibility to act in the best interests of people and the planet. That’s why they need to stop supporting an industry that’s causing deforestation and climate change, killing endangered species and violating human rights, and to invest instead in solutions to this global crisis. 

    Urge  to go Desforestation and Land Grab-Free!

  • Tell Nigerian authorities: Protect environmental defenders

    One of the most important ways to protect forests is to defend the women and men who defend lands and forests every day. 

    Odey Oyama, a Nigerian environmentalist, has been opposing his state’s plans to construct a 260-km superhighway right through five forest reserves. He's sued Wilmar International for its land-grabbing palm oil plantations. And he is a staunch defense of human rights in the face of a dubious UN-led carbon offset scheme. These actions have forced Odey into hiding and led to his arrest. Now he is receiving open threats to his life.

    Tell Nigerian authorities: Protect Odey Oyama!

  • Tell Vanguard: Say NO to dirty palm oil!

    If you are a university student or professor, chances are your university has ties to TIAA-CREF. You can help make TIAA-CREF stop supporting an industry that’s causing deforestation and climate change, killing endangered species and violating human rights. Instead, it must invest in solutions to this global crisis.

    Urge TIAA-CREF to go Desforestation and Land Grab-Free!

  • Tell CalPERS: Say NO to dirty palm oil!

    Tropical deforestation is a leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions -- second only to burning fossil fuels. And the leading cause of tropical deforestation is the rapid expansion of industrial palm oil plantations.

    CalPERS has hundreds of millions of dollars in public money invested in palm oil companies. Its funds are managed by Dimensional Fund Advisors, which has holdings in some of the dirtiest palm oil companies out there.

    Tell CalPERS: Don't let your investments destroy tropical forests!

  • Tell Congress: Don't let Canada condemn our whales!

    The Trans Mountain Pipeline already carries 300,000 barrels of oil per day from Alberta to British Columbia, where it is loaded onto oil tankers and shipped through the Salish Sea.

  • Sign the petition: Stop Monsanto’s Mega Merger Monstrosity

    Chemical companies like Monsanto don’t just produce chemicals -- they also patent and sell the majority of seeds farmers use to grow our food. So it’s no surprise that they produce seeds that are genetically engineered to withstand massive doses of their patented chemicals, like Monsanto’s Roundup®. They’re interested in growing their profits no matter what the cost to farm workers, rural communities and people like us.

    And it’s only going to get worse, as pesticide giants like Bayer and Monsanto attempt to merge.

    The Department of Justice and USDA can stop this further consolidation of our food system and help improve the selection of organic seeds, so organic farmers can produce the healthy food the public is demanding. But they need to hear from you!

    Bees are responsible for one in three bites of food we eat, so we can’t afford to keep losing them. The EPA has the power to help bring back bee populations by restricting the use of bee-toxic pesticides. But it needs to hear from you, not just pesticide companies like Bayer and Syngenta!

  • Tell baby formula companies to remove risky nanoparticles from their products

    Our groundbreaking research found tiny, engineered nanoparticles in six of the most popular baby formulas sold in the United States.

  • Tell President Obama: Letting Big Oil into Big Cypress Preserve was the wrong choice

    The Big Cypress Preserve protects over 729,000 acres of scenic wetlands. This preserve is vital to the health of the neighboring Everglades and home to a diversity of plant and animal species -- including the endangered Florida panther!

  • Tell the Army Corps of Engineers to say NO to this coal export terminal

    If the Longview project is approved, it could send 44 million tons of coal to Asia every year. That would be the equivalent of adding 600,000 new cars to the road each year. And when you account for operations and all the coal that would be burned in Asia, we're talking an increase of more than 2.5 million metric tons of global warming pollution per year. And it would all be shipped along the Columbia River!

    Say NO to building the Longview Coal Export Terminal!

  • Pledge to support Bernie Sanders for President

    Sen. Bernie Sanders has spent a lifetime fighting against the exploitation of people and our environment. That’s why Friends of the Earth Action enthusiastically endorses Sen. Sanders for President of the United States. Our endorsement is based on his deep and unyielding commitment to fighting climate change and leaving our world a better place for the future.

    But the promise of President Bernie Sanders goes beyond his environmental leadership. Sen. Sanders understands that protecting the environment and solving the climate crisis require addressing the deep social, racial and economic forces that perpetuate a currently unfair and unjust system. He is building a political revolution to protect voting rights, overturn Citizens United, dismantle “too-big-to-fail” banks, create a living wage, adopt universal health care, create a fair and just immigration policy, protect workers’ right to organize, and oppose unjust trade agreements.

    Sen. Sanders is talking to the American people about these issues and how we can build a more just and environmentally sound country.

    Right now, the Florida Senate is considering a bill that would expand fracking throughout the state and prevent public disclosure of the harmful chemicals used during the fracking process. To protect Florida from the devastation of fracking, we need to stop this bill.

    Take action to protect Florida from the dangers of fracking!

  • Tell your senator: Don't Frack Florida!
  • Call on Supreme Court Justices to Support Climate Action

    The Supreme Court just placed a temporary stay on the President's Clean Power Plan.  The Clean Power Plan is the first time the EPA has attempted to regulate carbon emissions from power plants and it's the strongest move the federal government has ever made to tackle climate change.

    With time running out, this delay is devastating to our fight against climate change. 

    Ask the Justices to consider the full consequences for our children and the world if they vote against the Clean Power Plan the next time it is before the court.

  • Tell your Senators: Protect the Arctic!

    Fossil Fuel Empires that want to drill for oil and gas in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge -- which is home to polar bears, wolves and caribou. Congress has the power to stop this. So we need to demand that our Representatives say NO to drilling in the Refuge!

    Tell your Members of Congress: Protect Arctic wildlife and say NO to drilling in the refuge!

  • It's Bayer vs. the bees -- speak out today!

    As a leading manufacturer of neonics, Bayer has contributed to countless bee deaths around the world, putting our very food supply at risk. 

    We need bees to pollinate 2/3 of the food crops we eat every day -- healthy fruits and vegetables matter far more than Bayer's extra profits! So now we need to show Bayer’s CEO that his toxic chemicals are tarnishing the Bayer brand and harming its business.

    Add your voice: Tell Bayer to stop making bee-killing pesticides!

  • Tell your Senators: Protect the Arctic!

  • Demand that Ace and True Value stop selling bee-killing pesticides!

    Ace and True Value don’t want to lose customers. So if we really want to turn up the heat on them to help save bees, we need to refuse to shop there until they stop selling neonic-treated plants and neonic products!

    Tell Ace and True Value: I'm taking my business elsewhere until you help save bees!

  • Help save Wisconsin's bees

    Right now, Wisconsin is considering adopting a Pollinator Protection Plan. Unfortunately, it would not do enough to restrict bee-killing pesticides.

    The Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection is accepting comments on the plan until February 19th. We need your help NOW to make it stronger!

    Submit your comment NOW to help save bees from toxic pesticides!

  • Tell your Senator: No more subsidies for Big Oil

    In a narrow vote, anti-environment extremists in Congress managed to kill an amendment that would have ended billions in fossil fuel subsidies. Your Senator helped defeat the amendment. Now we need to hold them accountable!

    Tell your Senator: Saying YES to fossil fuel subsidies was the wrong move!

  • Help save Maryland's bees

    The Pollinator Protection Act would require labeling of plants treated with these bee-killing pesticides and remove them from consumer use. We need your help to make sure it passes!

    Tell your legislators to vote YES on the Pollinator Protection Act!

  • Help flood Olive Garden's comment inbox!

    We won't stop until we get a firm commitment from Darden and Olive Garden. They must set real goals and benchmarks for serving good food that is better for people, animals and the planet!

    Tell the owner of Olive Garden: Serve food that's better for people and the planet!

    Darden is more likely to listen if you customize your letter -- so add your own thoughts to the letter below.

  • Tell your Senators: Keep coal in the ground

    Senator Hatch wants to introduce an amendment that would undercut President Obama’s efforts to keep coal in the ground. The vote could happen as soon as Monday. We urgently need your help to stop the amendment!

    Tell your Senators to vote NO on the Hatch amendment!

  • TEST: Tell your Member of Congress: Vote NO on the TPP

    TransCanada's lawsuit over KXL is bad enough. But we could see even more lawsuits like this if the Trans Pacific Partnership -- another giant trade deal -- is passed into law this year. Congress will be considering the TPP this year. We need your help to stop it!

    Tell Congress: Say NO to the TPP!

  • Stop coal companies from destroying the Powder River Basin

    The Regional Coal Team will soon decide whether to allow two coal companies to mine millions of tons of coal and produce up to a billion tons of carbon pollution. We need your help to stop them from wreaking havoc on our public lands and climate!

    Say NO to more fossil fuel development in the Powder River Basin!

  • Help get Big Money out of politics

    The Supreme Court’s ruling on Citizens United opened the floodgates for Big Food and Big Oil to spend millions to get their way in Washington. Meanwhile, the voices of everyday Americans like you and me have been sidelined. And when our politicians depend on the Koch Brothers’ oil money to win elections, it’s no surprise that they fight our every effort to prevent climate chaos.

    Sign the petition to the DNC and RNC to support a better democracy! 

  • It's Bayer vs. the bees -- speak out today!

    Bees are dying at alarming rates. Last year, beekeepers reported losing as much as 40-100% of their hives.

    A growing body of science points to bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides -- manufactured by chemical giants like Bayer -- as a key driver of the bees' decline.

    The evidence is clear -- Bayer has contributed to countless bee deaths around the world, putting our very food supply at risk. 

    We need bees to pollinate 2/3 of the food crops we eat every day -- healthy fruits and vegetables matter far more than Bayer's extra profits! So now we need to show Bayer’s CEO that his toxic chemicals are tarnishing the Bayer brand and harming its business.

    Add your voice: Tell Bayer to stop making bee-killing pesticides!

  • Thank President Obama for his climate leadership!

    The Obama Administration announced today that it is going to put a moratorium on new coal leasing on our public lands until it reviews the impacts this program has on our planet. This is a big victory for the movement to keep fossil fuels in the ground!

    Thank President Obama for protecting our public spaces from Fossil Fuel Empires!

  • Tell the USDA: Stop suppressing science that could help save bees

    Dr. Jonathan Lundgren, a senior scientist at the USDA, produced research that questioned the safety of bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides -- a leading driver of global bee declines. But the USDA is trying to bury those findings. We need your help to send the message that this is unacceptable!

    Tell the USDA to stop putting pesticide industry profits ahead of bees and butterflies!

  • Tell your Member of Congress: Vote NO on the TPP

    TransCanada's lawsuit over KXL is bad enough. But we could see even more lawsuits like this if the Trans Pacific Partnership -- another giant trade deal -- is passed into law this year. Congress will be considering the TPP this year. We need your help to stop it!

    Tell Congress: Say NO to the TPP!

  • Fight back against oil development in the Pacific Northwest

    Right now, the Pacific Northwest is under threat of even more oil development. Oil giant Tesoro-Savage wants to ship a staggering 360,000 barrels of oil per day through Vancouver, WA. We need your help to stop it!

    Submit your comment NOW: Say NO to the Tesoro-Savage oil-by-rail terminal!

  • Help protect our national forests from Fossil Fuel Empires

    Fossil Fuel Empires are trying to bulldoze through thousands of acres of national forest in Colorado -- all so they can dig up coal. Their plan would put black bears, lynx, and elks at risk -- and the U.S. Forest Service might let them! We need your help to fight back!

    We only have until January 15th to stop this dirty giveaway to Fossil Fuel Empires. Submit your comment NOW!

  • Help protect the rusty-patch bumblebee

    One of our crucial wild pollinators -- the rusty-patch bumblebee -- is on the brink of extinction. This is yet another example of our overuse of bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides wiping out pollinators essential for our food and broader ecosystems. 

    The rusty-patch bumblebee needs our help before it’s too late!

    Sign the petition to protect the rusty-patch bumblebee under the Endangered Species Act! 

  • Tell Congress: Don't dismantle our environmental protections

    Anti-environment extremists in Congress loaded this year's spending bill with attacks on clean water, the Environmental Protection Agency, and protections for endangered species. We can't let them get away with it!

    Tell your Representative to stand up for our air, water, and endangered species, not Big Polluters!

  • Tell grocery stores to say NO to bee-killing pesticides

    If we want to get bee-killing pesticides out of our food supply, our grocery stores need to stop selling food grown with bee-killing pesticides. You can help make that happen!

    Sign the petition: Demand that grocery stores stop selling food grown with bee-killing pesticides!

  • Tell your Member of Congress: Save wind power

    The production tax credit (PTC) for wind power is a vital incentive that has helped funnel billions of investment dollars into wind energy projects. The PTC is necessary to help us increase the use of renewables instead of fossil fuels -- but it’s expired.

    Now is our best chance to renew this essential protection for wind energy -- so we need you to write your Member of Congress and tell them to renew the PTC before it's too late.

    Tell Congress to act now! Stop playing politics with the climate and save wind energy!

  • Thank your Senator for not joining climate deniers

    Last year, President Obama pledged $3 billion for the Green Climate Fund, and asked Congress to make an initial down payment of $500 million from the 2016 budget. But, to date, the U.S. has not contributed a single cent. 37 senators want to keep it that way, but your Senator does not.

    Show your Senator that we have his back when he refuses to give in to climate deniers!

  • Costco says NO to GMO salmon!

    Costco, the second largest retailer in the world, just committed to not sell GMO salmon!

    This announcement couldn’t have come at a better time. Right before Thanksgiving, the FDA approved GMO salmon, the first genetically engineered animal approved for human consumption.

    Fortunately, Costco joined more than 60 grocery store chains nationwide -- including Kroger, Safeway, Trader Joe’s, Target and Whole Foods -- that listened to the science and consumers and made commitments to not sell this unnecessary, risky and unlabeled “frankenfish.”

    While a growing number of stores have made commitments to not sell GMO salmon, there are still some holdouts. Walmart, Publix, and a few others have not yet made a commitment to not sell this poorly tested fish to unsuspecting consumers.

    Sign the petition: Demand that grocery stores commit to not sell GMO salmon!

  • Help protect the Big Cypress Preserve

    The Big Cypress Preserve in Florida protects over 729,000 acres of scenic wetlands. But the Burnett Oil Company wants to explore this one-of-a-kind area for future oil and gas drilling.

    The National Park Service needs to approve Burnett’s plan. That’s where you can make a difference.

    Submit your comment: Keep Fossil Fuel Empires out of the Big Cypress Preserve!

  • Tell Ace and True Value: Stop selling bee-killing pesticides!

    Home Depot has just announced it has removed 80% of bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides from its plants to date and has committed to phase out neonics in the rest of its plants by 2018. This is a huge step forward in the fight to save bees from toxic pesticides!

    This progress happened because you emailed, called and swarmed Home Depot stores. Home Depot has joined Lowe's, BJ's Wholesale, and others in making time-bound committments to phase out these pesticides.

    This campaign is really heating up, but we can’t stop with Home Depot. We still need to keep the pressure on Ace and True Value to turn their “willingness” to remove neonics from store shelves by 2019 into full-fledged, time-bound commitments.

    Tell Ace and True Value it's their turn to protect bees!

  • (No Title)

    Tell Attorney General Roy Cooper to use his explicit constitutional authority to require executives of Duke Energy to help slow the accelerating climate crisis instead of making it worse.

    Take action NOW!

  • Stop Duke Energy from bullying our communities

    Duke is one of the largest and most powerful utilities in the country. In fact, it makes nearly $2 billion in annual profits.

    So why is it bullying a church for installing solar on its roof? Because it wants to maintain its monopoly over North Carolina’s energy supply -- all so it can keep selling energy produced with dirty coal and other fossil fuels.

    Stand up for solar power over Duke's profits now!

  • Help stop Fossil Fuel Empires from cheating taxpayers

    The new rules proposed by the Obama Administration would help ensure that companies pay the full amount required by law for their dirty deeds. They update oil and gas measurement guidance to reflect the best and most up-to-date technology and standards.

    The Administration is accepting comments on these updated regulations until December 14th, so now is the time to make your voice heard.

    Tell the Obama Administration: Make polluters pay for destroying our public lands!

  • Tell the House of Representatives: End polluter welfare!

  • Tell your Senators: Keep the ban on crude oil exports!

    If Congress repeals the crude oil export ban, within two years we will see 1.8 million additional barrels of oil being exported each and every day. That would increase exports by more than 200%! 

    So what would that mean? More trains crisscrossing the country with this dangerous fuel. More risk of an oil spill that would contaminate our drinking water and harm our marine wildlife. More chance of oil trains exploding and disasters like the Exxon Valdez and Deepwater Horizon. And potentially catastrophic impacts on our climate.

    Your Senators need to hear from you! Write to them now and tell them to oppose repealing the ban!

  • Don't let BP take a dirty deduction for Deepwater Horizon!

    Last month, the Justice Department proposed an out-of-court settlement with BP worth $20.8 billion. This might seem like a big number, but it is probably much less than if BP had actually gone to court. But even worse, most of the proposed payment is tax deductible!

    The Justice Department is accepting comments until December 4th, so we have to speak up NOW and make BP pay!

    Submit your comment before time runs out: Make BP, not taxpayers, pay for Deepwater Horizon!

  • Tell President Obama to reduce our emissions now!

    There are no excuses for waiting because we’re running out of time. Failure to do everything possible to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions could condemn us to an unspeakable climate future.

    Tell President Obama to do everything in his power to prevent climate chaos!

  • Tell California to reduce emissions here at home

    California’s forest carbon trading plan is bad for communities in California who live near polluting factories. It’s bad for forest communities abroad who could lose their rights to live off their land. And there is little evidence to show that it actually reduces emissions or protects forests!

    Stop the California Air Resources Board from expanding our carbon casino to tropical forests!

  • Tell your legislator to save our bees!

    More than 3,000 beekeepers across the state created and submitted their own plan to protect pollinators. The plan includes taking action on bee-killing pesticides. Now, we need your help to make sure the beekeepers’ plan, not Big Ag’s, is adopted!

    Tell your legislator to support the Massachusetts Pollinator Protection Act!

  • Help stop drilling in the Arctic Ocean!

    The stakes are high in this fight. As Alaska warms at twice the rate of the rest of the nation, the last thing we need is even more fossil fuel development. In order to keep our Arctic Ocean safe from the greed of Fossil Fuel Empires, the Obama administration must put a stop to offshore drilling and keep Arctic oil and gas in the ground.

    Tell the Obama administration: say NO to more Arctic drilling!

  • Thank Senators Sanders and Leahy for their leadership!

    The Keep Fossil Fuels in the Ground Act prohibits all new leases and the renewal of any non-producing leases for coal, oil and natural gas on public lands and waters. This is one of the most significant pieces of climate legislation in U.S. history.

  • Tell Congress to approve $500 million for the Green Climate Fund

    Act NOW and tell your Representative that we need a budget for people and the planet, not corporate polluters!

  • It's Bayer vs. the bees -- speak out today!

    As a leading manufacturer of neonics, Bayer has contributed to countless bee deaths around the world, putting our very food supply at risk. 

    We need bees to pollinate 2/3 of the food crops we eat every day -- healthy fruits and vegetables matter far more than Bayer's extra profits! So now we need to show Bayer’s CEO that his toxic chemicals are tarnishing the Bayer brand and harming its business.

  • Tell President Obama: Don't pass the buck on the climate crisis

    The truth is, while our country got rich by burning fossil fuels, we’re now dragging our feet on doing enough to take on the climate crisis we’ve helped create. Meanwhile, developing countries that did the least to cause this problem are the ones getting most impacted.

    We can't just sit on the sidelines and make this the rest of the world's problem. It's time for the U.S. to step up.

  • Tell the State Department: Protect the Arctic from bunker fuel!

    It’s a vicious cycle. The Arctic is already seeing the impacts of climate change, including a reduction in sea ice. This has made it easier for ships to travel through this region and for Fossil Fuel Empires to exploit its resources -- which increases vessel traffic.

    The result? These vessels burn more and more dirty bunker fuel, which fuels climate chaos.

  • Tell President Obama: Say NO to trade for trade's sake

    While the Administration just won a lot of authority to negotiate the TPP by getting fast track, Congress put in place restrictions on dealing with countries that have the worst records in combating human trafficking. Malaysia happens to be one of those. 

    Of course, it would have been inconvenient to the Obama administration for the TPP to get hung up just because of Congressional negotiating restrictions on major human rights issues. But then, this week, the State Department released a new trafficking report -- and Malaysia’s ranking was suddenly upgraded. 

    Coincidence? I think not.

  • Tell Subway: Switch to better meat!

    The whole factory farming system is propped up by this overuse of antibiotics. In fact, as much as 80 percent of all antibiotics sold in the U.S. are used in agriculture.

    The result? Those same antibiotics fed to animals may not work when we need them most: when our parents get a life-threatening pneumonia or our kids get a staph infection. 

    We have the power to push for a food system that doesn’t rely on routine antibiotics. We can eat less meat and demand healthier, organic and humanely raised meat and dairy that aren’t produced with routine antibiotics wherever we eat and shop. 

    But in order to change our food system quickly and prevent the worst impacts of industrial agriculture, we must demand that restaurants like Subway be part of the solution.

    By insisting on meat raised without routine antibiotics, we will remove a key tool that perpetuates terrible factory farming conditions and prevents a transition to more sustainable, humane meat production.

    Our waters have long been burdened by degraded water quality and increased health risks associated with sewer overflows. This is a clear violation of the Clean Water Act. And the agreement to solve this problem isn't good enough.

    Tell the DOJ: Take stronger action to protect DC's waters!

  • Tell the Army Corps of Engineers: Protect our communities from oil development

    The Corps is seeking public input because thousands of activists like you demanded a say in the approval process of this huge oil-by-rail terminal. This shows what we can make happen when we organize against these dirty projects -- but it’s not time to celebrate yet. The Army Corps is going to be under enormous pressure from Big Oil to issue a permit for the terminal.

    Help counter the oil industry spin and say NO to this dirty project!

  • Tell President Obama to speak out on the Customs Bill!

    The House version of the so-called “Customs Act,” which modifies the Fast Track bill, would explicitly prevent the Obama Administration from even considering the climate crisis as it negotiates the TPP.

    Why is this so bad? Because the deals in question make it easier to trade -- and therefore extract -- more fossil fuels. This would have devastating impacts on the climate!

    It is absurd for Congress to block action on climate in trade agreements. This is clearly just a sneaky way for some Members of Congress to pay back the Big Polluters who helped get them elected. So President Obama should call them out.

    Tell President Obama: Don't be a climate denier, speak out on the Customs Bill!

  • Thank Senator Merkley for taking bold climate action

    So far, the Obama administration has rubber stamped Shell’s pathway to the Arctic Ocean -- despite the fact they know there is a 75 percent chance of a large oil spill. But Senator Merkley’s bill brings front and center the issue that drilling in the Arctic is incompatible with a safe climate future and a resilient Arctic Ocean.

    Now, as one of his constituents, you need to show him that you appreciate his courageous stand. 

    Thank Senator Merkley for standing up for the Arctic!

  • Tell President Obama: Don't pass the buck on the climate crisis

    The truth is, while our country got rich by burning fossil fuels, we’re now dragging our feet on doing enough to take on the climate crisis we’ve helped create. Meanwhile, developing countries that did the least to cause this problem are the ones getting most impacted.

    We can't just sit on the sidelines and make this the rest of the world's problem. It's time for the U.S. to step up.

    Tell President Obama: We need a strong climate commitment now!

  • It's Bayer vs. the bees -- speak out today!

    As a leading manufacturer of neonics, Bayer has contributed to countless bee deaths around the world, putting our very food supply at risk. 

    We need bees to pollinate 2/3 of the food crops we eat every day -- healthy fruits and vegetables matter far more than Bayer's extra profits! So now we need to show Bayer’s CEO that his toxic chemicals are tarnishing the Bayer brand and harming its business.

    Add your voice: Tell Bayer to stop making bee-killing pesticides!

  • Tell the EPA to step up and protect bees now!

    President Obama and his administration have acknowledged we need to act fast to protect bees, but their pollinator action plan misses the mark and fails to restrict bee-toxic pesticides.

    The EPA is accepting public comments on its less-than-ambitious actions until July 29th. So now is your chance to tell it to do better!

    Tell the EPA to do its job and protect bees from toxic pesticides!!

  • Tell the EPA to step up and protect bees now!

    The EPA has pledged to place a moratorium on new uses of bee-killing neonic pesticides. But it doesn’t address more than 500 neonic products currently on the market designed for more than 100 uses. The result? Bees would still be exposed to neonics just as much as they are now.

    The EPA has offered to create temporary pesticide-free zones around bees that are managed by professional beekeepers when certain plants are in bloom. But that doesn’t protect native bees, bumblebees, butterflies or other pollinators that aren’t managed by professional beekeepers. It doesn’t address the fact that neonics are long-lasting and systemic. And it doesn’t address all the places bee-killing pesticides pop up in agriculture and in our backyards. 

    The EPA is encouraging states to develop pollinator protection plans. But this is basically just passing the buck. Bees and beekeepers don’t need a patchwork of plans with varying levels of strength and effectiveness. They need a unified national plan that includes a ban on all bee-killing pesticides. 

    The EPA is accepting public comments on its less-than-ambitious actions until August 28th. So now is your chance to tell it to do better!

  • Tell Congress to stop the TPP!

    We may not have stopped Fast Track, but we have only begun the fight against environmentally destructive trade agreements. And the next step is to stop the Trans Pacific Partnership.

  • Tell your Senator: Don't sell out our forests!

    Your Senator is regurgitating timber industry talking points to greenwash this dangerous energy source! We know this practice hurts biodiversity, belches toxic chemicals, and contributes to climate change.  Now, we need to hold your Senator accountable for their irresponsible actions!

    Tell your Senator that turning our forests into fuel is a terrible plan!

  • Thank your Senators for protecting our forests!

    Standing up for climate science should be easy, but the timber lobby is powerful in Washington. Senators Warren and Markey stood up to the industry, so now, we need to make sure they know we have their backs.

    Thank Senators Warren and Markey for putting science and the planet first!

  • Help stop the expansion of tanker traffic in Puget Sound

    BP is looking to use its illegally built tanker dock, in prime herring habitat, to expand oil tanker traffic in Puget Sound. With each new tanker, carrying up to 33 million gallons of oil, there is an increased risk of an oil spill that would be devastating to the area’s marine life.

    Meanwhile, the Army Corps of Engineers, which is tasked with evaluating the environmental impact of the project, is still dragging its feet. We need your help to shine a light on this process!

    Tell the Army Corps of Engineers: Shine a light on BP's dirty plans!

  • Help stop the expansion of tanker traffic in Puget Sound

    Few aquatic environments in the U.S. can compare to Puget Sound’s natural beauty and marine riches. The Sound supports thousands of animal and plant species, from eelgrass and herring to salmon and orcas. This diverse and fragile marine ecosystem also supports major tourism operations as well as sports, commercial and tribal fisheries and the cultural fabric that ties the Northwest together.

    But all that could change if oil giant BP gets its way. BP is looking to use its illegally built tanker dock, in prime herring habitat, to expand oil tanker traffic in Puget Sound. With each new tanker, carrying up to 33 million gallons of oil, there is an increased risk of an oil spill that would be devastating to the area’s marine life.

    Meanwhile, the Army Corps of Engineers, which is tasked with evaluating the environmental impact of the project, is still dragging its feet. For nearly a year, the Corps has been promising that it would release its final analysis for public comment. Instead, it’s working behind closed doors to decide whether BP should be allowed to put Puget Sound at risk. We need your help to shine a light on this process!

    Tell the Army Corps of Engineers: Shine a light on BP's dirty plans!

  • Help get toxic chemicals out of our homes!

    Many of our household products, from furniture to children’s toys, contain toxic flame retardants that migrate into the air in our homes. In the end, most of us end up with these chemicals in our blood -- putting us at risk of serious health impacts, from cancer to learning deficiencies.

  • Tell Rep. Waters: Choose the planet over polluters!

    Earlier this year Congresswoman Waters co-sponsored legislation that protects Ex-Im’s ability to enforce its climate policy.  However, now she may be changing her mind. She is moving toward supporting an alternative bill that seeks to relax the environmental standards. If the bill comes to pass, it could have devastating impacts on our climate and communities.

    Tell Representative Waters: Put environmental protection over Big Polluters' profits!

  • Tell your Representative: Stop the DARK Act!

    The chemical and junk food industry’s dream bill, known as the “DARK” Act, is gaining ground in Congress. This bill would take away our right to know whether the food we eat contains herbicide-doused GMOs. We need your help to stop it!

    Of course, it’s no surprise this bill is gaining support in Congress. After all, it’s backed by Big Ag and junk food companies such as Monsanto and Pepsi, along with the Koch brothers. These very same companies poured millions of dollars into getting pro-industry Representatives elected. So we should expect many of those Representatives to support pro-industry bills like this.

  • Tell your Representative: Don't sell out the EPA!

    This bill would leave the EPA toothless against some of America’s worst polluters. It would keep staff levels near historical lows.  It would stop the Clean Power Plan. And it would leave protections for endangered species at risk. 

    At the end of the day, this isn’t a funding bill. This is a wish list for the Big Polluters who spent $721 million last November to install the best Congress their money could buy.

    Let your Senator know that you don't appreciate them putting corporations ahead of people!

  • Tell your Representative: Don't sell out the EPA!

  • Tell your Senator: Vote NO on Fast Track

    The TPP and TTIP are essentially handouts for companies like Monsanto, Dow and Cargill. If your Representative votes to Fast Track these deals, it would be a clear sign that they are more interested in protecting corporate interests than their constituents’.

    That’s why you need to speak up now and show your Member of Congress that you’re watching their vote!

    Tell your Representatives to protect our health, our planet, and our democracy and stop Fast Track now!

  • Tell your Senator: Their vote on Fast Track was not okay

    Senate Republicans are working with President Obama to try to sneak Fast Track through Congress. If they succeed, it will lead to a terrible trade deal that favors corporate big-wigs over people and the planet. And today, thanks to your Senator, they got one step closer.

    Hold your Senator accountable for their bad vote on Fast Track!

    Sign the petition: Tell Ace and True Value it's their turn to protect bees!

  • Tell your Representatives: Save bees, end the corn ethanol mandate

    It’s a vicious cycle. Pesticide companies like Bayer and Syngenta have lobbied the EPA to allow them to use more and more neonics on crops. And since the EPA doesn’t regulate neonics as pesticides, the supply of untreated plants is extremely limited. So farmers end up using treated plants to grow massive amounts of corn and soy, in order to satisfy an arbitrary and destructive federal mandate.

    In the end, Bayer and Syngenta win. The energy lobby wins. Pollinators, and people like us lose.

    Tell your Members of Congress to protect bees on America's farmlands!

  • Tell your Senator: Choose the planet over polluters!

  • Tell President Obama to stop Shell from drilling in the Arctic!

    The Arctic is ground zero for climate disruption, and now it's under threat from Shell's plan to drill.

    Shell’s drilling rigs are making their way from Seattle, past Fairbanks and Dutch Harbor, Alaska, to the Chukchi Sea -- one of the most pristine natural environments in the world. Shell brings with it a terrible record of neglect, incompetence and indifference. Still, the Obama administration gave Shell the green light to start its drilling operations there this summer.

    Tell President Obama to shut down the Highway to Shell!

  • Tell the Obama Administration to make polluters pay!

    The Obama Administration recently proposed changes to its outdated and unfair drilling program, which would make it more expensive to drill. This would be a big step toward keeping fossil fuels in the ground.

  • Tell the Obama Administration to make polluters pay!

    For almost a century, Fossil Fuel Empires like Exxon and Shell have gotten away with defiling our public lands for profits. The results have been disastrous. Their drilling is leading us further down the path of irreversible climate disruption.

    The only way we can stop this runaway climate train is by keeping fossil fuels in the ground. But as long as Big Oil keeps profiting, they’re going to push to keep drilling.

    The Obama Administration recently proposed changes to its outdated and unfair drilling program. It will charge Big Polluters for the damage they cause, and it will make them pay to clean up.

  • Help stop Dow's new "Agent Orange" GMOs!

    The only winner in this chemical war on weeds is -- you guessed it -- Dow, which stands to make massive profits from this toxic chemical cocktail and accompanying GMOs.

    Submit your comment before it's too late: Tell the USDA not to double down on 2,4-D!

  • Help stop Dow's new "Agent Orange" GMOs!

    The EPA recently made an enormous, toxic mistake -- and now we need your help to stop the USDA from making it worse. 

    Last fall, the EPA approved the use of a new pesticide, Enlist Duo, produced by Dow Chemical, in fifteen states. Enlist Duo contains 2,4-D, a key component in the Vietnam War defoliant Agent Orange.

    This is terrible news -- not only for our planet, but for us as well. 2,4-D has been linked to serious health issues including cancer, Parkinson’s disease and reproductive harm. 

    Now the USDA is considering approving a cotton seed genetically engineered to resist massive applications of 2,4-D, leading to even more of this toxic chemical getting into our environment. It is accepting comments on this decision until June 29th, so we need you to act NOW to stop it!

    Submit your comment before it's too late: Tell the USDA not to double down on 2,4-D!

  • Tell Rep. Perlmutter to keep the ban on crude oil exports!

    Tell Representative Perlmutter: Don't let polluter money trump his constituents and the planet!

  • Help stop coal exports: Submit your comment now!

    If we can stop this new coal railroad, we can impede Big Polluters’ efforts to exploit lands for profit. If we can stop the exports, that means more fossil fuels are kept in the ground -- and it helps build the momentum for clean, safe, renewable energy.

    GMO crops threaten our environment, public health and farmers’ livelihoods. Many of these crops are designed to withstand massive pesticide use. The pesticides in question -- including Monsanto’s Roundup® -- are devastating important ecosystems and organisms such as monarch butterflies.  

    Many of these pesticides are also linked to serious health issues, including cancer. And pesticide use can impact even organic farmers, thanks to pesticide drift.

    Meanwhile, GMO crops are largely unregulated and often make it to market without independent analysis of their health and environmental risks.

    If we want to build a truly sustainable food system, we must reduce the use of GMO crops and pesticides and support farmers using organic, sustainable practices. It’s time for the USDA to start moving us in that direction.

    Tell Congress to appropriate $500 million to the Green Climate Fund!

  • Tell your Representative to keep the ban on crude oil exports!

    Are we going to allow Big Oil and their cronies in Congress to decide whether our communities remain safe and our climate livable? Or are we going to fight back, protect our climate and our communities, and keep fossil fuels in the ground?

    Tell your Representative: Don't let polluter money trump safety and the environment!

  • 2015 Bee Campaign "Bee Empowered"
  • Thank Mayor Murray for standing up to Shell!

    After secret negotiations without public input, the Seattle Port Commission gave Shell permission to store its Arctic drilling equipment at the Port of Seattle Terminal Five. This would make it easy for Shell to start drilling in the Arctic as soon as this summer.

    But Mayor Ed Murray listened to us and he’s putting the brakes on Shell’s effort. Now, we need to show him that we’ve got his back!

    Thank Mayor Murray for his strong action on climate!

  • 2015 Bee Campaign Call the Whitehouse
  • Tell the City of Vancouver: No more oil trains in our communities

    The NuStar Energy proposal would be a terrible deal for people in the Pacific Northwest and for the planet. It would increase the risk of dangerous oil spills and oil train accidents, including derailments, explosions, and fires. It would threaten our drinking water and the wild salmon in the Columbia River. And it would open up our states to even more fossil fuel development -- moving us further away from preventing climate chaos.

    We only have until May 4th to submit our comments, so take action now!

  • Tell Ace and True Value: Stop selling bee-killing pesticides!

    Huge news! Thanks to pressure from thousands of people like you, Lowe’s is finally taking action on bee-killing pesticides!

    Recently Lowe’s announced that it’s making a public commitment to phase out neonicotinoid pesticides. This progress is a result of your letters and phone calls to Lowe’s, the Valentine’s and Halloween cards you delivered to store managers, and the rallies you organized in front of your local store.  

    Now that  Lowe’s is making progress, we need to turn up the heat on their competitors to join them in protecting bees, not pesticide industry profits.

    Sign the petition: Tell Ace and True Value it's their turn to protect bees!

  • Tell your Representative: Voting for more fossil fuels is not okay!

    These representatives just voted AGAINST cutting the budget for research into dirty energy. We need to make sure they know this isn’t acceptable. We need to tell them that sending our tax dollars to ExxonMobil and the Koch Brothers isn’t going to go unnoticed.

    Write your Representative NOW!

  • Tell your Representative to protect our drinking water!

    The EPA has been working hard to protect our drinking water sources from pollution. Unfortunately, Congress has made a circus of this process and has tried time and time again to undermine the EPA’s authority.  

    Right now, they’re considering a new bill that would interfere with our important clean water protections.  We need your help to stop them!

    Tell your Representative to oppose rollbacks to our clean water protections!

  • Stop the Obama Administration from subsidizing Big Polluters' destruction

    By making Big Polluters pay the true costs of their environmental harm, we can make it harder for fossil fuel companies to keep pillaging our lands and waters for their profits. In the end, that means less drilling for dirty energy -- and a faster transition to clean energy like wind and solar.

    Tell the Obama Administration: Protect our public lands from Big Polluters!

  • Tell the Obama Administration: No drilling in the Arctic!

    If Big Oil drills in the Arctic, there is a high likelihood of an oil spill and a guarantee of climate disruption. Join us as we call on President Obama and his Administration to say NO to dirty, dangerous Arctic Ocean drilling plans.

  • Tell your Representative to protect our public lands from fracking!

    Drilling for dirty energy has no place on the lands that belong to all of us -- the areas that buffer our most precious national parks and monuments. It’s destructive, it’s dangerous, and it’s contributing to climate catastrophe.

    Representatives Pocan and Schakowsky recently introduced important legislation to ban fracking on all public lands. This bill represents the strongest Congressional action on fracking to date.

    Now we need to increase support for this important bill to send a strong signal that we are done with fracking.

    Tell your Representative to vote YES on the Protect our Public Lands Act!

  • Tell your Representative to end handouts to fossil fuel companies NOW!

    Taking our money back from big polluters isn’t going to be easy. Thanks to the millions of dollars Big Polluters poured into the 2014 election, many of our Representatives feel the need to continue supporting dirty energy to pay back their campaign contributors. 

    But if we make enough noise, our voices can be louder than their cash. We need to send the strong message to our Representatives that they need to protect their constituents, not Big Oil’s profits.

    Tell your Representative to vote YES on the End Polluter Welfare Act!

  • Tell your legislators: Save Minnesota's bees from toxic pesticides!

    Minnesota is already on its way to protecting bees. Four cities across the state have already passed resolutions to stop the use of bee-toxic pesticides and plants treated with them on city property. The momentum is building, but now, we have a unique opportunity to follow the lead of these cities and solidify Minnesota’s place as a leader in pollinator protection.

    Take action now: Tell your legislators to make Minnesota a leader in pollinator protection!

  • Tell your Senators: Remove the Snake River dams!

    Removing these four dams is the single most effective action we can take to restore wild salmon to healthy numbers in the Pacific Northwest. Our Senators have the power to push for their removal -- but they need to hear from you!

  • Tell your Senator: Stop Big Chem's dream bill!

    We need to do everything we can to make sure that Congress enacts real chemical safety reform -- not a bill blatantly written to protect the profits of the chemical companies like Dow, Dupont and Monsanto. We must stop this attack on our health and environment.

    Tell your Senator to reject this bogus bill and support REAL chemical reform!

  • Tell President Obama: Stop letting Big Oil destroy our lands and waters!

    Five years after Deepwater Horizon, it appears we haven’t learned our lesson about offshore drilling. The Obama Administration continues to allow Big Oil to drill in our waters -- risking another devastating accident.

    If we really want to prevent future oil disasters and protect our climate, we have to keep our fossil fuels in the ground.

  • Tell President Obama: Stop letting Big Oil destroy our lands and waters!

    Today marks five years since one of the worst environmental catastrophes in recent history -- the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster. The BP-operated drilling rig exploded on April 20, 2010, killing 11 people and pouring oil into the Gulf of Mexico for the next 87 days. 

    But five years later, it appears we haven’t learned our lesson about offshore drilling. The Obama Administration continues to allow Big Oil to drill in our waters -- risking another devastating accident. 

    We need your help to show President Obama that we don’t want another Deepwater Horizon.

    Tell President Obama: The only way to keep oil out of our environment is to keep it in the ground!

  • Tell your Representative: Vote NO on Fast Track

    The TPP and TTIP are essentially handouts for companies like Monsanto, Dow and Cargill. If your Representative votes to Fast Track these deals, it would be a clear sign that they are more interested in protecting corporate interests than their constituents’.

    That’s why you need to speak up now and show your Member of Congress that you’re watching their vote!

    Tell your Representatives to protect our health, our planet, and our democracy and stop Fast Track now!

  • Tell the Obama Administration: Protect the Arctic from reckless oil companies!

    The stakes are high in this fight: The people and wildlife in the Arctic depend on a clean and healthy ocean. Now, their lives and livelihoods are at risk. Meanwhile, oil companies like Shell are fighting any hint of safety regulations -- all to protect their profits.

    Tell the BOEM: Protect the Arctic from a Deepwater Horizon-type oil disaster!

    The stakes are high in this fight: The people and wildlife in the Arctic depend on a clean and healthy ocean. Now, their lives and livelihoods are at risk. Meanwhile, oil companies like Shell are fighting any hint of safety regulations -- all to protect their profits.

    In fact, the rules that will govern Arctic drilling – in some of the riskiest environments in the world -- were written for the Gulf of Mexico. But we already know those rules weren’t enough -- after all, they didn’t prevent the Deepwater Horizon disaster from becoming the largest oil spill in American history!  

    That’s why we need to tell the Bureau of Ocean and Energy Management (BOEM) that the highest and strictest safety standards must be in place and enforced before we move forward with drilling in the Arctic. 

    Tell the BOEM: Protect the Arctic from a Deepwater Horizon-type oil disaster!

  • Tell your Senator: Protect Washington, not Big Oil's profits!

    It’s time for our legislature to update our laws to reflect the fact that we already have dangerous oil transportation systems, putting our communities and waterways at risk. Delaying action is unacceptable, and it’s time for Olympia to deliver.

    Email your Senator and tell them to protect Washingtonians from dangerous oil transport!

  • Tell the Senate: End polluter welfare!

    Right now, the Senate is thinking about tax reform. So now is the time to send our Senators a clear message: No more taxpayer giveaways to the companies fueling the climate crisis!

  • Tell your Representative: Tax Wall Street to pay for Main Street

    Representative Keith Ellison recently introduced legislation that would tax profit-hoarding Big Banks. It would generate Big Money for desperately-needed public goods and services at home and around the world -- like helping people cope with food shortages and threats to public health caused by climate change.

    The Inclusive Prosperity Act would establish a financial transaction tax, often known as a “Robin Hood Tax” or “Wall Street Tax.” This would place a tiny fee on financial transactions such as the trading of stocks, bonds, derivatives and other financial instruments, most of which are traded by computers -- not people -- in a matter of micro-seconds.

    It’s going to be an uphill battle to get this bill through Congress, and we need your help.  Voice your support for protecting people and the planet, not Wall Street’s profits!

    After the terrible San Bruno pipeline explosion in 2010, PG&E said it was putting “safety first.”  But once again, here at Diablo Canyon, PG&E is putting its profits ahead of public safety.

    Tell PG&E: We don't want a nuclear San Bruno-like disaster at Diablo Canyon!

  • Tell Senator Gillibrand to protect our public lands from fracking!

    It’s great that New York has banned fracking, but the impacts of fracking in other states will be felt by us as well. If we want to visit national parks, drink clean water, and reduce the risk of catastrophic climate impacts, we need to stop fracking across the country. Senator Gillibrand can help make that happen -- but she needs to hear from you!

  • Keep GMOs 2.0 out of food and cosmetics

    Synbio vanilla, made via an “extreme” form of genetic engineering, seems like science fiction, but it’s real. And it's at the forefront of a whole slew of computer-synthesized, extreme GMO ingredients that are entering our food and consumer products falsely promoted as “natural.” 

    A growing number of companies have committed not to use synbio ingredients in their products. Now we need to turn up the pressure on other food and cosmetic companies to join them.

  • Tell Lowe's to show bees some love!

    Bees pollinate one out of every three bites of food we eat, but they are in big trouble. A large and growing body of science indicates that neonicotinoid (neonic) pesticides are a central driver of global bee declines. Not only are these pesticides harming bees, but they’re harming everything from butterflies to earthworms to soil microbes, threatening healthy ecosystems and food production. 

    Despite this clear science, Lowe’s is selling products containing neonics and plants pre-treated with these bee-killing pesticides.

The Koch brothers alone have already pledged to spend nearly a BILLION dollars to get pro-oil-industry candidates elected.

    It’s increasingly clear that, especially since the Citizens United Supreme Court decision, big money is polluting our politics, creating a sinister dynamic whereby corporations can buy favors from our elected officials -- from regulatory rollbacks to lucrative government contracts.

  • Tell Congress to say NO to the DARK Act!

    First it was Keystone XL. Then it was chemical safety. Now, the 114th Congress is at it again – putting corporate profits ahead of people and the planet. And this time, the assault on our environment is coming from both sides of the aisle, in the form of blocking our right to know whether we are eating GMOs..

    Rep. Mike Pompeo just introduced H.R. 1599 -- dubbed by its critics the “DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act.” This terrible bill is backed by Monsanto, Dow Chemical, the Koch Brothers and junk food companies like Pepsi. If it passes, it would take away states’ rights to label GMOs.

    The DARK Act would prohibit states from passing their own state-wide GMO labeling laws. It would restrict the FDA’s ability to mandate national GMO labeling. And it would replace the independent Non-GMO Project certification with a far weaker federal non-GMO labeling standard -- making it even harder for consumers to avoid feeding their families GMOs.

    If supporters of the DARK Act and their campaign contributors are successful and the DARK Act passes, the fight for GMO labeling is game over. BUT if we act now, we can stop this terrible bill in its tracks.

    So how can a couple of innocuous-sounding international agreements do so much harm? 

    The deals would undercut our efforts to keep fossil fuels in the ground. We’d end up with more oil, coal, and gas exports -- which means more fossil fuel infrastructure here at home. The environmental protections we have could be rolled back, and the deals would impede clean energy initiatives.

  • Tell Congress: Fight climate change by stopping bad trade deals!

    This isn’t about a single energy project or one EPA regulation -- it’s about a systemic assault on our environmental protections in the form of two giant international trade deals. If these deals get through, the impact on our climate could be catastrophic.

  • Sign the petition: Help counter Big Food's lobby machine

    In a huge victory in the fight for a sustainable food system, the USDA and HHS may finally consider the health of the planet in their dietary guidelines!

    But Big Food has millions of dollars in profits at stake, and it isn’t going to let this happen without a fight. We have the science and the economics on our side -- but we have to make sure our message isn’t drowned out by all the industry spin.

    Tell the Obama Administration: Protect our health and our planet, not Big Food's profits!

  • Sign the petition: Support Seismic Shift in Food Policy

    In a huge victory in the fight for a sustainable food system, the USDA and HHS may finally consider the health of the planet in their dietary guidelines (a.k.a. the “Food Pyramid”)!

    What does this mean? It means that the U.S. government may recommend food that is good for both our health and the environment. The impact would be felt in schools and other government facilities across the country -- and across our entire food system. 

    But Big Food has millions of dollars in profits at stake, and it isn’t going to let this happen without a fight. We have the science and the economics on our side -- but we have to make sure our message isn’t drowned out by all the industry spin.

  • Tell your legislators to hold PG&E accountable for gambling with Californians’ safety!

    We already know what can happen when an earthquake prompts a major nuclear accident -- we saw it four years ago at Fukushima. And PG&E has not tested for exactly the kind of accident that happened there.

    Take action now: Tell your legislators to not let PG&E put Californians at risk!

  • Tell your Representatives: Save bees from toxic pesticides!

    Marylanders have the right to know that plants they are purchasing could harm or kill bees. Passing the Pollinator Protection Act would be a huge step forward for saving bees  -- so it’s important your legislators hear from you, their constituent -- and not just pesticide industry lobbyists -- before the hearing. 

    Take action now: Tell your Representatives to support the Pollinator Protection Act!

  • Tell your County Council member: Restrict toxic pesticides!

    Among the pesticides that would be restricted are toxic neonicotinoid pesticides linked to recent bee declines. Passing this bill would be a huge step forward in the fight to save bees -- and would protect the health of people and our local food system.

    Tell your Council member to protect the bees and restrict toxic pesticides!

  • Fight back against dirty fossil fuels

    Port Ambrose would increase pressure for fossil fuel companies to do even more fracking. The result? Increased threats to public safety and the environment. The project would also damage our fragile ocean ecology and undermine an offshore wind energy proposal. 

    We need less, not more, fossil fuel development. But we only have until March 16th to submit comments on the Port Ambrose project.

    Speak up now: Tell Governor Cuomo to veto the Port Ambrose project!

  • Say NO to GMO apples!

    Thanks to pressure from thousands of people like you, McDonald’s and Gerber -- two of the biggest purchasers of apples -- have already confirmed that they have no plans to sell GMO apples. Their commitments will help keep this risky product off the market.

    Now, if we can get the top 10 fast food companies, including Burger King, Wendy’s, Subway and Dunkin Donuts, to commit to not sell the GMO apple, we may be able to prevent it from ending up on our plates!

    Tell these fast food companies not to sell GMO apples!

  • Tell the EPA: Protect our families from toxic pesticides!

    The EPA is ignoring science and allowing our kids to be exposed to toxic pesticides. We need your help to stop it!

    The pesticide in question is called chlorpyrifos. This toxic chemical was already banned for household uses more than ten years ago. But it continues to be used on farms across the country.

    Tell the EPA: Ban pesticides that harm people and the planet!

  • Say NO to GMO apples!

    On Friday the 13th, the USDA approved the unnecessary, unlabeled, and poorly tested GMO apple. It was an unlucky day indeed for the apple growers, food companies, and people like us who want to protect our families from GMO foods. 

    But it’s not all bad news. Thanks to pressure from thousands of people like you, McDonald’s and Gerber -- two of the biggest purchasers of apples -- have already confirmed that they have no plans to sell GMO apples. Their commitments will help keep this risky product off the market.

    Now, we need to get other fast food companies to join them. If we can get the top 10 fast food companies, including Burger King, Wendy’s, Subway and Dunkin Donuts, to commit to not sell the GMO apple, we may be able to prevent it from ending up on our plates!

    Tell these fast food companies not to sell GMO apples!

  • Tell the EPA: Protect our families from toxic pesticides!

    The EPA is ignoring science and allowing our kids to be exposed to toxic pesticides. We need your help to stop it!

    The pesticide in question is called chlorpyrifos. It’s commonly found on our kids’ favorite foods -- like grapes, apples and peaches. And it’s linked to damage in children’s developing brains -- including reduced IQ and an increased the risk of ADHD and autism. 

    This toxic chemical was already banned for household uses more than ten years ago. But it continues to be used on farms across the country -- where it can drift into nearby homes and schools.

    The EPA is currently reviewing this pesticide, and is accepting comments now. Now is our chance to say NO to this dangerous chemical!

    Tell the EPA: Ban pesticides that harm people and the planet!

  • Carnival Cruises: Clean up your act

    Once again Carnival Cruise Lines gets a failing grade on our Cruise Ship Report Card for its treatment of the ocean.

    Last year, Carnival also got a failing grade. So this year, instead of taking steps to protect the ocean, it chose to hide its polluting practices from us. So now we need to ramp up the pressure.

    Tell Carnival Cruise Lines: Stop polluting our oceans!

  • Help protect monarch butterflies

    Monarch butterflies are in serious trouble. The leading factor in their decline is the increased use of Monsanto’s Roundup®, which has virtually wiped out milkweed -- the only food young monarchs eat. More Roundup® = less milkweed = fewer monarchs. 

    Monarchs need our help before it's too late.

    Sign the petition to protect monarchs under the Endangered Species Act! 

  • Thank President Obama for vetoing KXL!

    Six years ago, many said KXL was a done deal. But thanks in large part to years of pressure from people like you, today President Obama stood up to the Big Polluters who bought our Congress and said NO to the Keystone XL bill.

    Thank President Obama for vetoing KXL and tell him to reject it once and for all!

  • We won! President Obama rejected KXL!

    Seven years ago, many said KXL was a done deal. Now, we have prevailed against powerful entrenched interests and incredible odds to achieve one of the most powerful victories for our movement in years.

    Thank President Obama for rejecting KXL!

  • Tell your Representative: Reject bad trade deals

    The TPP and TTIP were not meant to help people like you and me. They will only benefit Wall Street banks, Big Oil, agriculture multinationals, and chemical manufacturers. Congress must stop these deals from going through.

    Tell your Representatives to reject the TPP and TTIP!

  • Tell the FDA: Say NO to GMO mosquitoes!

    Oxitec, a British company, wants to use the Florida Keys as a testing ground for releasing GMO mosquitoes in the U.S. It already has approval to build a GMO mosquito-rearing facility in Key West. But now, it wants to release millions of these mosquitoes into the open environment. We need your help to stop it before it's too late.

    Take action now: Fight back against this dangerous GMO mosquito experiment!

  • Tell FERC: Reject the Jordan Cove export terminal

    The Jordan Cove terminal is just one part of a massive fracking infrastructure development across the Western United States and Canada. The risks of this development are enormous. It could lead to eminent domain proceedings against hundreds of landowners, the destruction of vital habitat for imperiled wildlife species, and the pollution of sensitive waterways.

    The evidence is clear: The Jordan Cove terminal and the pipeline that goes with it offer no benefits in exchange for great risks to people and the planet.

    Submit your comments before time runs out: Say NO to the Jordan Cove project!

  • Protect rainforest communities and the planet!

    When I visited Sumatra Indonesia last year, the farmers of Lunjuk Village asked me to support their fight against PT SIL, a local palm oil company that supplies palm oil giant Wilmar International. Now, we need you to help amplify their voices!

    Fight back against unsustainable palm oil production: Take action today!

  • Help pass a moratorium on fracking in Maryland

    The bill in question would provide time for long-term health studies on fracking to be conducted, so that we fully understand the risks before deciding to subject Maryland residents like us to a public health experiment.

    Urge your State Representatives to support a moratorium on fracking!

  • Tell the Obama Administration: Protect our planet, not Shell's profits

    Last Thursday, oil giant Shell announced that it plans to drill in one of Alaska’s treasured natural resources -- all so it can make more money. But Shell can’t start drilling until it gets permission from the Obama Administration. So we need you to speak up NOW and make sure the Administration makes the right choice!

    Take action now: Say NO to Shell's plan to drill in the Arctic!

  • Tell the Obama Administration: Protect our planet, not Shell's profits

    Last Thursday, oil giant Shell announced that it plans to drill in one of Alaska’s treasured natural resources -- all so it can make more money. The Chukchi Sea is a fragile ocean habitat that supports a variety of wildlife and local communities that depend on it for their livelihood. But now, Shell plans to destroy this ecosystem and increase spending on Alaskan oil and gas exploration as a whole. 

    All of this comes at a time when, despite lower gas prices, Shell’s profits rose 14 percent to $19.04 billion for 2014. Corporations like Shell profit from destroying our environment, polluting our air and water, and disrupting our climate, and do not deserve support from our government. 

    But Shell can’t start drilling until it gets permission from the Obama Administration. So we need you to speak up NOW and make sure the Administration makes the right choice!

    Take action now: Say NO to Shell's plan to drill in the Arctic!
