All Issues

Zero Waste PA

In Pennsylvania, like all of America, we have a “stuff” problem. We are encouraged to make, use and toss at the greatest possible speed.  That includes items we use once — products such as plastic grocery bags, polystyrene takeout containers, plastic straws and disposable bottles — as well as items we rely on to keep our lives running — such as cell phones, computers and other electronics. But they all share one thing in common: when we’re done with them, there are few easy, affordable, accessible options other than just throwing them away. Only, there is no “away.”

Wildlife Over Waste

Every day, people are throwing away tons of single-use cups, containers and other plastic “stuff.” Among the worst forms of plastic pollution is polystyrene foam (the stuff most of us call Styrofoam), which never fully degrades. Nothing we use for a few minutes should be allowed to pollute our oceans and rivers and threaten wildlife for centuries.

Trouble in the Air

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