This year, we’re celebrating Clean Water Action’s 50th birthday and the 50th anniversary of the Clean Water Act - our nation’s bedrock environmental law passed in 1972 with the help of our founder David Zwick. This law ensures that our rivers, streams, lakes and other surface waters are protected.
I just gotta say, I've been shopping at REI for about six years, I love your equipment and the folks who work at your stores are extremely helpful.
I'm writing about PFAS chemicals used in outdoor gear. This stuff is... well, to call it crap would be polite. And the ironic thing is I've used your gear to go to places of amazing beauty and purity.
Hello Rhode Island Clean Water Action members, allies, and friends!
We are very excited to introduce our new State Director, Jed Thorp! Jed is returning to Clean Water Action after, most recently, working as the Advocacy Coordinator for Save the Bay. He has a long career as an organizer and is very familiar with Clean Water Action and our local campaigns, so he is ready to hit the ground running.
I am SO EXCITED to meet you! Wait, don’t run away! I’m not dangerous! I want to talk to you about something that IS dangerous: toxic PFAS in my humans’ clothes!
Last week the U.S. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a memo detailing how the agency will use its water pollution permitting program to limit discharges of PFAS to rivers, streams, lakes, and other water bodies.
The work we do here at Clean Water Action is about bringing people together, and we love partnering with other folks who share our values and mission.
In honor of Clean Water Action's 50th birthday, we’re sharing our history and stories of the people who have helped us protect clean water along the way through #CleanWater50Stories.
