Regional Climate Action

To slow global warming, we need to ultimately eliminate carbon pollution from power plants. But we know that our leaders in Washington, D.C., are moving in the wrong direction. That’s why the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative might be the most important climate program you’ve never heard of.

Protecting Forests

To protect species and biodiversity, we must protect the world’s forests. Doing so will help stabilize our climate. We’re doing our part by engaging the American public and urging U.S. companies to choose sustainability. For instance, we’re urging Cargill and other U.S. agricultural companies operating in the tropics to adopt zero-deforestation plans, and we’re urging U.S. tissue companies to include recycled paper products in their paper towels, toilet paper and tissues.

Philly Healthy Schools Initiative

 

Schools are places where our kids go to learn, achieve, build lifelong friendships and grow up to be productive citizens in society. School buildings are also the place where our kids spend most of their waking hours.

Unfortunately, there’s growing evidence that our school buildings are plagued with environmental health threats, from potential exposure to lead paint and lead in drinking water, to asbestos, to common asthma triggers like mold.

No Bees, No Food

Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. We rely on bees to pollinate everything from almonds to strawberries to the alfalfa used to feed dairy cows. What happens if the bees disappear? It’s simple: No bees, no food.

New Life for the Ocean

More Nature

Every minute, America is losing two football fields worth of forest, meadow, grassland, desert, beachfront, riverside or wetland. Today, just 13 percent of oceans worldwide can be classified as "wilderness" relatively unaffected by human activity.

This continuous loss of nature diminishes not only the richness of our natural world, but also of our own lives and that of our children’s future.

Go Solar

Fortunately, more Americans are going solar every day. By 2017, our country had enough solar energy capacity installed to power the equivalent of more than 10 million homes.
