Stop fracking waste

Horizontal hydraulic fracturing, or ‘fracking,’ is fast proving to be a disaster for Ohio’s environment and public health. Toxic waste dumped into our drinking water, explosions near homes, and even earthquakes – these are just a few of the problems fracking has already caused in Ohio.

Stand Up For Lake Erie

More than 10 billion gallons of sewage flow into Lake Erie every year, leading to dangerous bacteria levels that caused more than 1,200 beach closings and advisories in 2010 alone. The EPA can fix this problem by updating clean water standards, but polluters and their allies are threatening to block them. To protect Lake Erie, we need to show massive public support for clean water.

Protect Our Parks

Ohio's parks like Cuyahoga Valley or Hocking Hills are our state’s hidden treasures—and it’s up to us to safeguard them for future generations. These iconic places should get the best level of protection we can afford.

Preserve Our Local Parks

Every Ohio kid deserves a favorite place to explore nature or play in a creek. Yet we’ve already lost too many of our of our woods and waterways to development. We’re working to make sure Ohio’s most important conservation program, the Clean Ohio Fund, gets the resources it needs to preserve and maintain our parks for generations to come.

Ohio's Clean Energy Future

Too much of our energy comes from dirty sources that harm our environment. But by tapping the power of the sun and wind, we can repower Ohio with clean energy that doesn’t pollute and never runs out. Environment Ohio is calling on mayors and city councils across the state to strengthen their commitment to renewable energy and lead the way to Ohio’s clean energy future.

Global Warming Solutions

Nobody wants our kids to inherit a world where storms like Superstorm Sandy—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.
