We're cutting global warming pollution.

Together, we’ve made hard-won progress in the race to protect our children from the worst consequences of global warming. This past June, after more than 3 million Americans urged President Obama to act on climate, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed a rule to limit carbon pollution from power plants — the single largest sources of global warming pollution. We’ll keep tackling global warming with you at our side.

We helped ban BPA from baby bottles.

Six years after Environment California released its ground-breaking “Toxic Baby Bottles” report, California finally outlawed baby bottles and sippy cups containing bisphenol-A (BPA) in 2011.

We launched a campaign to see 1 million electric vehicles in California.

Transportation is the single largest source of global warming pollution in California, creating pollutants that harm our environment and our health. In 2013, Environment California launched a campaign to put our state in the driver’s seat to lead the transition from gasoline-powered vehicles to clean electric vehicles. The Charge Ahead California campaign has a strong coalition of allies to put a million electric cars, trucks and buses on our roads.

We banned the bag in 100 communities.

In 2013, more cities and counties stood up to protect Pacific wildlife and passed bans on single-use plastic grocery bags. Now, more than 90 communities in California, from Marin to Los Angeles, are living bag free. Thanks to citizen support, California now has a network of 124 underwater state parks that protect our coast and wildlife.

We won three critical bills to help California go solar.

Seven years after we passed the Million Solar Roofs Initiative, California is the nation’s unabashed solar energy leader. In 2013, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti joined our call to get 20 percent of our largest city’s energy from solar power by 2020. We won three bills in the Legislature that will make it easier for Californians to go solar. And our efforts helped California’s rooftop solar market grow by 25 percent in 2013, reducing air pollution, fighting global warming, and working to ensure California’s solar future is bright.
