Protect the Great Lakes

From Lake Michigan to Lake Superior, Michiganders care deeply about the Great Lakes. We should be able to swim at Sleeping Bear Dunes and bring our children to Sand Point Beach without worrying about beach closings or getting sick from elevated bacteria levels. But in the last decade, polluter-driven Supreme Court decisions put more than half of Michigan's streams at risk—the same waterways that feed and filter the Great Lakes.

Keep the Great Lakes Safe from Fracking

The dirty gas drilling practice known as "fracking" is spreading rapidly across Michigan, and it poses huge risks to the Great Lakes, including contamination, toxic spills and water depletion. Environment Michigan is working in communities across the state to ban fracking and stop the spread of this dirty drilling before it pollutes the Great Lakes

Program

Healthy Farms, Healthy Planet

The food we eat is one of our closest connections to the natural world. Farms should be environmentally friendly and provide food that is safe and healthy. Environment Michigan is working to make sure the rules for conventional farms are strong enough to protect our rivers and bays. At the same time, we are helping to build the market for food from local farms that grow diversified crops using sustainable practices.

Go Solar Michigan

We still get far too much of our energy from dirty, dangerous sources such as coal and oil. But it doesn’t have to be this way. We can put solar on 100,000 roofs by 2020.

Clean Air, Healthy Families

New air pollution standards will cut mercury pollution by 90%  and save 46,000 lives each year. The coal industry and their friends in Congress are trying to roll back these standards, but we’re urging Congress to let the EPA do its job and move forward with its commonsense plan to protect public health.
