Clean Water Action is building on our strengths in energy, water, and public health to advance state climate policy and help communities build strength in the face of climate stresses.
We’re mapping a path to 100% renewable energy for Connecticut including expanded access to solar by allowing co-op style development - while being careful that clean power infrastructure does not threaten open space, habitat, or natural resources. We continue to support Connecticut’s amazing Clean Energy Task Forces in their work.
We’re bringing our advocacy skills to Connecticut’s water planning process by addressing toxic pollution in our waterways and advocating for stronger water conservation through sustainable landscape design and efficient technologies.
We’re drawing out the connection between climate change and public health risks like asthma and vector-borne diseases, and reaching out widely to involve the public health community in climate policy.
And we’re getting toxic chemicals out of more and more products through negotiation with major corporations and recent legislative wins to ban plastic microbeads in cosmetics and personal care products and to regulate pesticide application at schools and playgrounds.

Clean Up On All Aisles! Mind the Store Campaigns Mounting Victories
Clean Water Action and Mind the Store campaign partners are celebrating some big victories made possible in part by Clean Water Action members — thank you!
The campaign was launched to secure commitments from the nation’s largest retailers to replace toxic chemicals with safer alternatives in every day products such as couch cushions, cosmetics and children’s toys. The targets include the top 10 largest retailers in the country like Walmart, CVS, Home Depot, Target and Walgreens — all companies whose decisions can lead product manufacturers and the chemical industry to shift to safer chemicals.
Throughout New England, Clean Water Action hosted events with local volunteers, delivered letters to store managers, organized call-in days, and conducted in-store research on toxic chemicals in products on store shelves. Read more
Featuring an hors d’oeuvres reception, an awards ceremony, silent auction and celebration of victories and progress towards a healthy and sustainable world!

We have a great opportunity to create momentum to ban the sale of a big group of toxic flame retardants in consumer products but we need your help! Together with our allies Earthjustice and Consumer Federation of America, Clean Water is working to get comments submitted in support of a petition asking the Consumer Product Safety Commission to ban children’s products, furniture, mattresses and electronic containing toxic organohalogen chemicals.
Connecticut residents want to protect ourselves and those we love, preventing harm especially to babies and young children. Our homes and our bodies should be safe from unwanted and dangerous intrusion. But there's a toxic problem putting our health at risk.
