Protecting our Health from Toxic Chemicals

From before we are born until the time we die, every one of us is repeatedly and regularly exposed to toxic chemicals that can seriously harm our health. Clean Water Action is working to protect families and workers by phasing out harmful chemicals in our products.

Boston Recycling Coalition

Boston’s recycling rate has risen from abysmal levels in recent years, but still lags far behind the national average. Boston incinerates 80% of its residential waste and pays tens of millions annually for the privilege.

Massachusetts Power Forward

Massachusetts has emerged as a national leader on energy, making substantial progress in transitioning away from polluting sources of power to renewable energy and energy efficiency.

Green Justice Coalition

Clean Water Action has served since 2008 on the Steering Committee of the Green Justice Coalition (GJC), a partnership between labor and grassroots justice groups across Massachusetts, convened by our good friends at Community Labor United.  Over the years, GJC has won a string of victories by growing the collective people power of community-based organizations, organized labor and environmental justice groups.
