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.

We helped win the single biggest action our country has ever taken on climate

Under the newly announced Clean Power Plan, gas and coal power plants will pollute 32 percent less and clean energy sources such as wind and solar will meet much more of the nation’s electricity needs. Environment America is proud of the role we’ve played to galvanize public support for this historic plan. With continued commitment from President Obama and state leaders, and strong backing from the American people, this will mark a giant shift toward the 100 percent clean energy reality that the climate crisis demands and future generations deserve.
