Action in the states

Environment America, with state environment groups as affiliates in 29 states, advocates for protection of our air, water and open spaces. In 2011, Environment New Jersey, Environment Maine and Environment New Hampshire defended the progress we’ve made on clean energy and global warming; PennEnvironment, Environment New York and Environment Ohio stood up to industry’s push to expand fracking; Environment Arizona, Environment Texas, Environment Ohio and Environment Missouri fought to spare state parks from funding cuts and closures; and Environment California, Environment Oregon and Environment Washington helped persuade communities to ban the disposable plastic bags that are polluting the Pacific and harming ocean wildlife.
