The biggest clean water victory in a decade.

Wisconsin's lakes, and all of our waterways, will soon be better protected than they have been in a decade, thanks to new guidelines that we helped win. Over the last decade, Supreme Court decisions left more than half of Wisconsin's streams vulnerable to pollution—the same streams that feed and filter our lakes. Along with our allies, we delivered more than 170,000 public comments in support of clean water. And thanks to our efforts, the Obama administration is moving to finalize guidelines that will restore Clean Water Act protections to many of our waterways.

Promoting local, sustainable farms.

The U.S. House recently launched an assault on sustainable agriculture, voting to eliminate programs that encourage local farming. Industrial agriculture pollutes our air and water and fills our shelves with low-quality food. That's why we're hard at work defending programs that make it easier for local farmers to produce and sell healthy food, such as Wisconsin's "Farm to School" program.

Repowering Wisconsin with solar energy.

Wisconsin has more solar potential than Germany, the world's clean energy leader. We're working to unleash that potential by removing unnecessary barriers to solar power and building a strong coalition of local businesses, citizens and community leaders who are as passionate about solar energy as we are. Solar energy is the future, and Wisconsin Environment is leading the way.

E-cycling program implemented.

Our state has long been a leader with recycling programs for cans, bottles and paper, and now we’re a leader in “e-cycling,” too. Thousands of Wisconsinites joined our call for a program to safely recycle old TVs and laptop computers—instead of letting them pile up in landfills where toxic chemicals can seep into groundwater.

You’re building support to save the bees.

Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. In 2015, we mobilized grassroots support for protecting these vital pollinators. Thanks to your support, our national team and a coalition of beekeepers, farmers and others delivered more than 4 million petitions calling on the Obama administration to declare a ban on neonicotinoids, a class of bee-killing pesticides.
