Like anything these days - there is so much information out there
- much of which one has to sift thru...
We'd like to donate to an environmental organization that fights
to more tightly regulate industry - specifically, keeping us safe
from toxic chemicals, plastics, pvc, dioxins, etc.. Europe is much
more advanced than we are on this.
Try Environmental Working Group (http://www.ewg.org)
They are a small, research-oriented group that does great work on toxics. A friend
works there and I am always impressed with their projects.
A *very* effective local group that does super, focused work on toxics (including PCBs
and dioxins) is Baykeeper. Baykeeper's mission is to stop pollution of the Bay and
Delta and over the years has been hugely successful doing policy advocacy and by suing
the worst polluters. They have taken on the refineries in the North Bay and pesticide
dumping agribusiness in the Central Valley. They are a small group but accomplish
much. A big bang for your charity buck. Their website is Baykeeper.org. Great group.
Great work. I have been supporting them for years Its our water too!
