Review for Environmental Working Group, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

this is a highly effective organization, I very much appreciate all that they do, and yet I am now disappointed to see that the CEO's salary is well about 200,000 now. This is a non-profit, and they are asking small donors to give who make a lot less than that. Environmental groups are going corporate without evening knowing it by accepting that the only reward is a high salary. That is ultimately one of the biggest reasons for environmental destruction--greed.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

pesticide awareness and sunscreen rankings

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

cut all the exec's pay in half, which would still be in the 6 figures

Role:  Donor & I have donated before, and currently work at a non-profit.
