Stop the Tar Sands Smokestacks

Against incredible odds, we took on Big Oil and won to block a tar sands terminal on the shores of Casco Bay. But the oil industry has vowed to do everything in its power to overturn the ordinance.

Solar for All

Millions of Americans are ready to go solar so we can power our lives and our communities with clean, renewable, local energy. Yet some utilities and other special interests want to throw new obstacles in the way. Our Solar for All campaign is working to knock those barriers out of the way.

Save the Monarch

As the monarchs begin their 3,000-mile fall migration, we need to make sure this migration isn't their last. That's why we're calling on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to declare the monarch butterfly a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act.

No Bees, No Food

Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. We rely on bees to pollinate everything from almonds to strawberries to the alfalfa used to feed dairy cows. What happens if the bees disappear? It’s simple: No bees, no food. Let's give bees a chance.

Local, Sustainable Maine Food

Maine is on the cusp of an agricultural revival -- one in which local, sustainable farms, not factory farms, feed our state and beyond. That's why we're working to bring the local foods movement to scale.

Go Solar

Global Warming Solutions

Get the Lead Out

Our children need safe drinking water — especially at school where they go to learn and play each day. Unfortunately, lead is contaminating drinking water at schools and pre-schools across the country. That’s why we’re working to Get the Lead Out.

Defend the places we love

If Washington, D.C. dismantles our environmental protections, Americans will be left with dirtier air to breathe, dirtier water to drink and swim in, a more rapidly changing climate, and more degraded public lands. We’re working to defend the places we love and the environmental values we share. Take action now.

Program

Climate Can't Wait

Our country needs to do more to fight climate change. Unfortunately, the decisions being made in Washington, D.C., right now are moving us in the wrong direction. Luckily, Maine is part of the best regional clean air and climate program you’ve never heard of: the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. Our governor needs to lead, because climate can’t wait.
