We love our planet, and we know you do too. So far, 2017 has been a whirlwind of a year, and it's been a little tough for us to keep track of the latest changes to our country’s environmental policies. So, we decided to do a little research into the sometimes messy, convoluted information that is U.S. politics and summarize the changes for you. This stuff can be preeettttttty dense reading, but we think it’s important to at least understand the basics, so we’ll try to make it as easy to follow as possible.
While there have been several policy changes and reviews requested in a such a short amount of time this year, the implications of these changes are still somewhat murky. We wanted to provide as much info as possible on the water-related policy changes and issues that we care so deeply about.
Here are the most important changes affecting our waters so far.
Needless to say, the policy changes and executive orders mentioned above are some pretty big actions that could lead to drastic environmental consequences. Since this email has gotten really long really quickly, we’ll keep this short. If the issues are concerning to you, talk to people (especially those who disagree) and get involved in any way you can. For those who argue that jobs are the number 1 priority, kindly remind them that we won’t have a society (to work in) if we destroy the environment.
P.S. If we missed anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us and let us know. We’d love to hear from you!
