We seek to create a system that benefits everyone. Whether we’re stopping destructive corporate boondoggles or pushing for stronger government pollution standards, we aim to make it possible for all people to enjoy the planet’s bounty.
Our work focuses on the economic drivers of environmental degradation — from government subsidies and permits to societal issues like the externalized costs of pollution — to limit and eventually end the destruction of the planet.
To continue this work, we must join together to stop the Trump agenda. He has appointed climate deniers, corporate lobbyists, and Big Oil cronies to his administration. They have the power to unravel decades of hard-fought victories for people and the planet. Now more than ever, we must combine our strength and stand proud to protect our precious Earth and all the life it supports.

Bees are in trouble largely thanks to neonicotinoid pesticides. But Kroger could stop this. It could stop selling food produced with neonics.
