About Environment Maryland
Environment Maryland is a policy and action group with tens of thousands of supporters across the state. Our mission is to protect clean air, clean water and open space. Environment Maryland has been a leader in reducing plastic pollution by passing local bans on single use plastic bans and the first-in-the-nation ban on foam food packaging. We have helped ban fracking in the state, expand wind and solar power, and commit Maryland to some of the nation’s most aggressive climate goals.
Environment Maryland is part of Environment America. We work to tackle the most profound problem of our time: a way of living that is destroying the natural world.
We’re advocates for energy conservation and renewable power, so we can keep oil in the ground and stop burning fossil fuels. We’re champions of plastic reduction, so nothing we use for a few minutes is allowed to pollute our oceans for centuries. And we’re defenders of wildlife and wild places, both for their own sake as well as the awe and wonder they bring to our lives.
Environment America’s national network of 30 state environmental groups work to improve our quality of life by reducing the pollution and other harms of how we produce, consume and dispose of more and more stuff. And we do it one step at a time, by winning results for clean air, clean water, clean energy, wildlife, open spaces, and a livable climate that make a tangible difference in people's lives and our environment.
