About Us


Investigating problems and crafting solutions.

All Mainers should be able to breathe clean air. But smog pollution from power plants and vehicles puts the health of children and families at risk. Our new report, Danger in the Air, revealed that air pollution exceeded health standards in six Maine counties, and recommended solutions for cleaning up our air.


Educating the public and making our voices heard.

In 2010, after we alerted the public to the threats, the Board of Environmental Protection voted unanimously to ban toxic bisphenol-A (BPA) from children’s products like baby bottles and sippy cups — a critical step toward reducing our families’ exposure to this dangerous and pervasive chemical, which has been linked to cancer, heart disease and the early onset of puberty.
