Stop Marine Plastic Pollution -- Ask Producers to Help Save our Seas and $8 billion per year!
Plastic that pollutes our oceans and waterways has severe impacts on our environment and our economy. Seabirds, whales, sea turtles and other marine life are eating marine plastic pollution and dying from choking, intestinal blockage and starvation. Scientists are investigating the long-term impacts of toxic pollutants absorbed, transported, and consumed by fish and other marine life, including the potential effects on human health. This pollution also has huge costs for taxpayers and local governments that must clean this trash off of beaches and streets to protect public health, prevent flooding from trash-blocked storm drains, and avoid lost tourism revenue from filthy beaches. So who's responsible? We all need to do our fair share to stop plastic pollution: individuals need to recycle and never litter, but producers of single use plastic packaging need to do more too. We need producers to design packaging so that it is fully recyclable, and so there is less waste. We also need producers to help cover the costs of keeping their products out of the ocean. Join NRDC and a growing coalition of business, community, and environmental groups to support producer responsibility for marine plastic pollution: www.stopplasticpollution.org

NRDC Report on Chemicals in Food: Too Often Their Safety is Secret
Congress created an unsettling loophole in The Food Additives Amendment of 1958, which has allowed food ingredients to bypass U.S. Food and Drug Administration review as long as they are "Generally Recognized as Safe." A half century later, hundreds, even thousands, of uncommon chemicals with unpronounceable names have been added to our food without FDA oversight. The loophole would be better known as "Generally Recognized as Secret."

Energy Efficiency in 90 seconds
When most people talk about "clean energy," they often mean wind or solar power, and when they're discussing "energy conservation," they're usually talking about doing things like remembering to turn off the lights. But energy conservation, sometimes called energy efficiency, IS clean energy just like solar and wind. It's also cheaper than fossil fuels and doesn't create pollution.
