Clean Water Action protects water and health, from watershed to water tap. Clean Water Action's programs reach tens of thousands of Rhode Islanders every year, building a clean water and clean energy future through outreach, education, organizing, advocacy and policy action at the state and national levels.


Rhode Island Bottle Bill

Plastic bottles and other beverage containers are littering our neighborhoods, clogging storm drains, polluting our waterways, and piling up in the landfill. There is a solution: a container deposit law, or "bottle bill".


Zero Waste in RI

Single-use plastics are polluting our environment, littering our waterways, and piling up nationwide. The Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation (RIRRC) estimates that the landfill in Rhode Island will reach capacity by 2040. To extend its lifespan and protect our environment, we have to reduce the volume of waste that we create.

Climate Resilience in Rhode Island

Rhode Island’s coastal communities are vulnerable to rising seas. We're partnering with cities and towns throughout Rhode Island to make sure they are prepared for the impacts of climate change.

Energize Rhode Island

Clean Water Action, as a member of the Energize Rhode Island coalition, is fighting for a solution that can ease the environmental impact, while helping residents and businesses adapt to changes intensified by the burning of fossil fuels.

A Safe and Healthy Rhode Island

Clean Water is working to reduce and eliminate toxic chemical exposures in our everyday lives- in buildings, schools, and workplaces, air, water and food, and in consumer products.
