My husband and I donate a small amount of money monthly and have for a number of years. We are giving what we can and without reservation. My peeve: they call at least five times a week! Tomorrow when they call it's going like this: stop calling us! We are doing what we can and you need to stop or I will stop the automatic withdrawal. I have had it with them. Rant done.

Door-to-door solicitor, very conscientious, sincere, recent college grad, seemed so honest and trustworthy, however, she presented material that said they are a 501c3 tax deductible organization, they are not. What their stated policy, mission, or work claims to be sound great, but if the organization is misrepresenting itself, that sends up red flags to me. After getting a call back from a representative in their Denver office (I made the donation in California for Environment CALIFORNIA, not Colorado), I was offered a refund which I expect to arrive in 2-4 weeks. I'm looking into the facts about Environment California and hope they are actually doing the right thing to help conserve our environment, protect our water, stop fracking etc. as they claim.

How are we going to effect change for the better if we are not politically involved? I have donated for a couple of years now with only one phone call from E. C. Inc. Everyone wants clean air & water but wanting doesn't make it happen. I was in Europe back in 1979 and everyone took their reusable bags shopping; no plastic bags! Why do we still have plastic bags?? Organizations like this tell the politicians we are serious which is the only way to accomplish anything constructive.

I made a mistake donating to this organization. They now call me almost every week despite being told (both on the phone and by email) multiple times to stop and giving me assurances that they have removed my name from the list.
