Clean Water Action is joining the national effort by Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families’ Mind the Store Campaign to challenge the country’s top retailers to restrict the Hazardous 100 chemicals. The Hazardous 100 is a list of the most hazardous chemicals, such as triclosan, flame retardants and BPA, used in consumer products.
Clean Water Action is a proud member of the Minnesota Clean Energy & Jobs Campaign, which mobilizes more than 50 energy, labor, youth, faith, environment, and conservation groups, as well as clean energy businesses to advance groundbreaking state policies that create jobs for Minnesotans and generate clean, local, renewable energy, while protecting our health.
The campaign answers Governor Dayton’s call to establish Minnesota’s sustainable energy future this year and beyond — and promotes economic, energy and climate solutions supported by the majority of Minnesota voters.
Six years ago, our state took a big bipartisan step to cleaner energy and a stronger economy, proving that we can create thousands of jobs. But our work is not done — and we cannot afford to wait.
We must take the next step to promote clean, renewable energy; reduce costs and red tape for these industries; and promote energy efficiency to ensure family-supporting jobs, clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and a protected natural environment for future generations.
Take Action Tell your legislators to support clean energy and jobs for Minnesota's future.

The energy we use in Minnesota is directly connected to the quantity and quality of our water. Energy production is the largest consumer of water in the state and the old ways of generating power which rely on burning fossil fuels or nuclear fission harm our health and our environment.
Aquatic invasive species (AIS) are not just a nuisance when they reach Minnesota’s water but are a significant economic, safety and water quality threat. The most effective and feasible approach is to prevent their introduction. Clean Water Action is working on multiple fronts to prevent the next invaders from reaching our waters.
