Description

Texas Campaign for the Environment is Texas' largest non-profit environmental organization. With over 40,000 individual members here in the state, we are at the forefront of grassroots efforts to protect our state's environment and public health.

TCE works both locally and statewide to sustain and improve environmental standards, preserve our valuable natural resources and promote democratic processes in which the voice of the people determines the policy that affects our communities and quality of life.

Some of our victories include:

- Rick Perry signed both of our Producer Take-back bills into law, which require computer & television manufacturers to offer recycling options for their old products

- We were the driving force that established Dell's computer recycling program

- We established curbside recycling programs in Houston, Dallas and Arlington.

- We passed a bag ordinance in Austin, which limits retailers from giving away single-use paper and plastic bags.

Working towards a zero waste future...

TCE is now working to expand producer takeback recycling to include other forms of household hazardous waste such as mercury-containing lightbulbs, single-use batteries and paint.

Keeping hazardous materials like these out of landfills is an important step toward protecting our water sources, because several landfills are located near waterways-and many are leaking toxins underground. In fact, 60 landfills in Texas reported leaking toxic chemicals in 2011 alone!
