Read Dominique Browning’s testimony in support of EPA’s new standards to limit carbon pollution from power plants.
The Packaging Reduction and Recycling Infrastructure Act will cut single-use packaging in half, as well as to remove toxic chemicals such as PFAS, benzene, toluene, phthalates, bisphenols, and heavy metals from plastic packaging.
Earlier this month, EPA Administrator Michael Regan announced new standards to limit carbon pollution from power plants. These new standards are vital to protecting all families and communities from the climate crisis and dangerous air pollution.
For more than a decade, we’ve worked to eliminate mercury and other toxic pollutants from coal plants. Mercury is poison, especially for babies, and children. Moms from across the country are speaking at an EPA mercury hearing. Here’s how you can help.
EPA proposed new rules for pollution from plastics and chemical manufacturing, tailpipe pollution from cars and trucks, and mercury and other air toxins from coal-fired power plants. Here’s how to help EPA pass the strongest clean air standards.
From fish to rice, many foods are contaminated with mercury. But there is no safe level of mercury consumption. It’s critical that we strengthen the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards.
EPA’s proposals for new tailpipe pollution protections—one for cars and one for heavy-duty trucks—mark a moment of transformation in the transition to zero-emission vehicles.
Last week, EPA proposed strong standards to protect people from the hazardous air pollution emitted by more than 200 of the largest, most toxic petrochemical manufacturing facilities in the country. These polluting facilities make chemicals that become plastics. Join us in thanking EPA for taking this critical step to safeguard people—especially children—from plastics and petrochemical manufacturing facilities.
EPA Administrator Regan just announced important new mercury and air toxics (MATS) protections. The science is clear: No amount of mercury is safe for pregnant moms and children because it endangers developing fetal brains and the brains of children.
Administrator Regan has begun to address petrochemical toxicity. Biden’s Department of Justice has taken some steps to hold petrochemical companies accountable. None of it is enough. Yet. Petrochemical disasters and pollution must end.
EPA needs to hold the petrochemical polluters and the companies that run “train bombs” through our neighborhoods accountable. These companies should be paying the entire cost of cleanup and providing future support and health care for those who have been exposed to their carcinogenic chemicals.
