We all need to eat, and our collective choices in the food we purchase can make a big impact on the health of our environment - for bad and for good. Unfortunately, it's often difficult to find sustainable products on the shelf in the first place. Clean Water Action is asking Minnesota groceries to work with the Field to Fork program to improve the products they carry for sale, with a focus on:
• Healthy and humanely raised meat products
Picture this: you’re walking outside in one of your favorite places… you’re enjoying the beautiful scenery… and then you realize that your new jacket is shedding toxic chemicals into the environment.The outdoor gear industry has a toxic secret. Many popular outdoor brands use PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) to waterproof their products—from jackets to boots. The production, use, and disposal of these products pollute people and the planet.
We need to convince REI, one of the top outdoor retailers, to stop selling PFAS polluting products. Will you join us?
Earlier this year the State Water Resources Control Board (the Board) planned to propose a final drinking water standard for Chrome 6 in the spring. That has slipped to December, but there is no guarantee that is going to happen. After all, it has taken them 4 years to get this far. We need your help now to ensure that the standard is not delayed any further and that it is the most health protective rule possible. Please tell the Board today to set the standard at 1ppb and to do it quickly.
CalGEM (the state agency that regulates oil and gas production) and the Governor’s office have proposed new oil and gas public health rules. They have proposed a 3200-foot setback from new oil and gas wells to protect frontline communities. This is huge -- but we have to make sure the proposal is finalized.
Tell WPJWA to conduct outreach and adopt policies that put residents first and better protects our water.
