EDF helps me know the most important environmental causes that I don't have time to research. It's research based with much of the latest first sources in science, agriculture and technology to help make decisions about causes to act on. I enjoy its easy to understand features and the in depth stories and resources to check into. It also allows me to act on impacting the politicians who are and are not making the causes I care about.

I am writing this review with limited experience with the EDF. In fact, I just joined the EDF, but every petition I have seen so far aligns with the most pressing global issues for future generations in preserving the precious balance of the ecosystem. As modern industrial and "postindustrial" nations, we still live in a world that exists through the natural environment's generosity in allowing us humans to inhabit its space. And we have disrupted this environment with such rapidity and ferocity that I fear for the immediate generations to follow. Now, I recognize that I have not directly addressed the EDF in its specific causes, but I believe I am addressing the importance of the kind of work that the EDF does because many people do not consider the damage we do to the balance of the environment even in terms of all biological, geological, chemical, and natural organisms and elements that are necessary for maintaining the world for future generations. The EDF, for me, is focused on these oft-ignored, crucial aspects of the environment.

EDI helps me stay connected with the single most important issue that needs attention by our politicians and society. It provides me with up to date and focused information about action I need to take, and makes it easy for my voice to be heard to my representatives. I really appreciate it.

They keep very up-to-date on the latest environmental issues and send out alerts to the public on events happening which affect the entire world around us. Climate change is real and they are doing all they can to stop the on-going pollution of our air, water, and land so that we can slow down and negate the effects of climate change.
Thank you for your great work !
Sincerely, Greg Ellsworth, Portland, Oregon
