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 oil and gas industry has leased 84,000 acres of national forest along the Great Lakes—putting our lakes and the waterways that flow into them in harm’s way. Environment Michigan is working to protect the Great Lakes by putting the forests and lands near and along the Great Lakes off-limits to fracking.

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.

Global Warming Solutions

Nobody wants our kids to inherit a world where floods in Genesee County and devastating drought—or worse—are the new normal. That’s why it’s so important we reduce the pollution fueling global warming. The less we pollute now, the safer our climate will be for future generations. We’ve launched a campaign to get information to more than 1 million Americans about the local impacts of global warming, the threats of power plant pollution, and the impact President Obama’s Clean Power Plan will have on our children’s future.
