These days, there’s a lot of talk about zero waste, but what does it really mean? When we envision our average Joe going zero waste we think of mason jars, composting bins, and the elimination of single use products. But how about when a whole city goes zero waste?
Boston’s Building Emissions Reduction and Disclosure Ordinance and the Path Towards Equity in Environmental Law
Good news! Last week, the Boston City Council unanimously voted for the Building Emissions Reduction and Disclosure Ordinance to become law.
The latest report from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says we are terrifyingly close to the point of no return in terms of stemming the worst impact of the climate crisis. The world’s on fire and it's only going to get worse unless we act.
My name is Erin Dracup and I’ve spent the summer as a field canvasser for Clean Water Action working on the campaigns to ban toxic PFAS in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
I grew up in Ithaca, NY and currently live in Boston where I attend Boston University and study Health Sciences with the intent of pursuing a Masters in Public Health. I’m most passionate about plastic pollution as well as how low-income communities and communities of color are disproportionately impacted by water quality issues.
We did it! Our top priority bill—to ban PFAS in food packaging, firefighting foam, require the state to implement a take-back program and shift to a safe, fluorine-free foam was signed into law!
97% of Americans already have traces of PFAS in their blood, making it clear that this is an issue that everyone has a stake in. Drinking clean water is a basic human right. Whether it is you, or someone you love that is in the 97%, we must all take action today.
Every year in May, World Asthma Day is held to raise awareness about asthma around the globe.
