Go Solar

Fortunately, more Americans are going solar every day. By 2017, our country had enough solar energy capacity installed to power the equivalent of 9 million homes

Global Warming Solutions

A greener, healthier world requires each of us to do all we can to eliminate the pollution and practices that are warming the planet and changing our climate. Environment Ohio takes concrete steps to move us closer to the world we want to live in, from promoting the fossil fuel divestment movement to accelerating the transition to cars that don’t pollute.

Get the Lead Out: Back-to-school toolkit

Get the Lead Out

Get the Lead Out

Medical experts estimate that more than 24 million American kids will lose IQ points due to lead exposure. Our research finds many of these kids will be exposed to lead in their schools’ drinking water. That’s why we’re working to Get the Lead Out.

Environmental Defense: The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

One of the most spectacular wildlife migrations in the world takes place each spring and summer on the coastal plain of America's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. Some 200,000 caribou migrate hundreds of miles annually to give birth there. Millions of migratory birds flock there to nest. Polar bears and cubs den on the coastal plain over the winter. And, due to this abundance of wildlife, for thousands of years the native Gwich’in people have depended on this biological jewel for survival, with a culture centered around the caribou herd.

Environmental Defense: Our Water

Decades ago, some people thought polluted rivers and streams were the price we had to pay for progress. That’s not a world we have to live in anymore. Nor is it the future our children deserve. Yet President Trump and his allies in Congress are pushing for changes that would turn back the clock to when environmental protection was an afterthought—not the foundation for a better quality of life and a brighter future.

Environmental Defense: Our Public Lands

From the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters, America is a beautiful country. Since Teddy Roosevelt, 15 presidents have protected some of our most special places as national monuments. Yet President Trump wants to erase protections for many of them. Together with our national network, we're doing all we can to protect and preserve these places.

Environmental Defense: Our Climate

We all want a safe, healthy future for our children and grandchildren. That’s why we need to do all we can on global warming. Yet President Trump wants to dismantle protections that limit global warming pollution from power plants, cars and trucks, and other sources. We’re working to defend and strengthen climate protections.

Environmental Defense

The price of a clean and healthy environment is, to paraphrase Thomas Jefferson, eternal vigilance—especially now as President Trump and his allies in Congress push to dismantle protections for our rivers, our public lands, and our climate. We’re building a green firewall in defense of America's environmental protections.
