What You Can Do

TELL CONGRESS TO STOP SHELLING OUT BILLIONS TO BIG OIL

Our leaders cannot claim to be serious about environmental justice and climate change if they continue to hand away taxpayer money to Big Polluters. TAKE ACTION

TELL LOWE’S AND HOME DEPOT: STOP SELLING BEE-KILLING ROUNDUP

A recent EPA assessment found that this pesticide is likely to harm or kill 94% of endangered plants and animals. TAKE ACTION

SAVE OUR OCEANS FROM PLASTIC POLLUTION

Plastic is polluting our entire planet, from the beaches to the deepest depths of our oceans. TAKE ACTION

SAVE OUR PUBLIC LANDS FROM OIL AND GAS DRILLING!

Nearly a quarter of our country’s emissions come from fossil fuel extraction on public lands — we can’t afford to let the fossil fuel industry drill and mine even more. TAKE ACTION

FIGHT DEFORESTATION

Over ten years ago, the world’s biggest retail companies committed to ending deforestation in their supply chains by 2020, but they have failed. We must hold them accountable. TAKE ACTION

TELL U.S. TO TERMINATE ITS INVOLVEMENT WITH A DEADLY COAL PLANT

The U.S. helped fund the Sasan coal plant in India — a project with an ash pond that burst, creating a massive flood of coal ash that led to the deaths of six people. TAKE ACTION
