"Friends of the Earth" is great because it stays on top of many issues that relate to the health and livability of the planet. They sponsor many petitions which deal with environmental health.
Friends of the Earth gives voice to people who care about our environment. They closely monitor the environmental policies of our government and of corporations. They create petitions for people to sign which oppose bad environmental policies. Then Friends of the Earth submits those petitions to the source of the bad policies. They are tireless in their efforts to defend and protect our environment. They also provide a vehicle for people to support pro-environmental political candidates. They are an excellent nonprofit organization!
Friends of the Earth make my heart-felt passion of trying to do something about our environment, our beautiful water and land and animals and life within nature, which we all share, a daily reminder, a daily dose of Do Something! I have small donations automatically taken out monthly, and sign petitions almost daily, and contribute more when I have the funds to do so. I feel better knowing they are taking action for me, because I am disabled and unable to march and protest, when I actually want to. I want to help, because without water, clean air, wildlife, safety for our children, and their children, what is left? anishinaabe-bimaadizi vai s/he lives the Indian way
I am a supporter of FoE. I believe that Global Warming will be the death of most of us if continued. Most Governments do too little to stave this off. I want more to understand this. The majority of folk seem not to understand their own role in reducing their own carbon footprint eg reducing meat consumption, recycling all they can do, Using the other side of a discarded sheet for printing things that have no reason to object to rubbish on the back for example, Giving to others such paper waste for reuse. A significant number of us put every bit of rubbish in their black bin because they cannot bother to re-cycle. Many do not have a compost heap that keeps carbon from becoming CO2. Do not burn rubbish again keeping carbon bound
Having solar and heat panels on the roof to reduce fossil fuel based electricity down.
I support FoE for such reasons
I had a pollution monitor at my roadside tree for two weeks to urge pollution reduction.
With so many environmental and civil rights issues needing urgent attention its hard to know where to turn and what to do. Friends of the Earth puts it all together for me. I know any support I offer is put to the best use and that FOE staff will be doing the hard work of protecting all that I love and cherish.
Friends of the Earth stands for and fights for all the things I hold dear to my heart - the Earth, her waters, her four-legged people, standing people, flying people, the air that surrounds her, and the ground that rests upon her mantle.
I have trusted Friends of the Earth for years to fight for my heart's interests. And I will continue to do so.
i have been involved since I first heard of this group, Friends of the Earth. Their daily updates and petitions to try and save our planet is so very commendable
As a result of the Friends of the Earth very effective campaign to save bees, I planted a large pollinator garden last year. This had many side effects in addition to hosting bees and butterflies. Another effect was that I became a dedicated gardener, and I must say that gardening is a very effective stress reducer and a wonderful way to exercise my 83 year old body. Weeding and planting and digging and lugging soil around and composting and shredding beat any exercise class I've ever been in. Yet another effect was noticing how climate change has had an effect on plants. In this, my second year of the garden, nearly every plant bloomed later than was expected, thus the pollinators had less time this summer to pollinate. I checked with a master gardener who said that the blooming season was indeed later than usual this year. Gardeners notice changes and this can be useful all around. I am grateful to Friends of the Earth for bringing attention to the plight of bees and all of their other good work at a time when we need it most.
I have been involved with Friends of the Earth for years. Our shared commitment to respecting the Sacredness of All Life assists my Heart in remaining peace filled. We are all in this together. Let us rise and Be the open Heart our sweet, sweet Earth longs for.
When Friends of the Earth (FoE) endorsed Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Presidential Primary Election, I was convinced of FoE's steadfast advocacy for our health and the environment. As a member, I have appreciated the opportunities to participate in online activism and contribute to some of the many victories and continuing campaigns. However, I would like to meet other members in person, but haven't had an opportunity to do so.
Sure it's easy to click on stars but the thing that matters the most is of course the ability to make a true effect on this planet. Friends of the Earth is a perfect amalgam of environment vs politics and treats them equally as important. And the reason I fund them is due to the fact that they are genuine they move and shake things to get a positive objective and they really care about people and this planet. They are not afraid to step up to and ask to step off big oil, and of course the train wreck that is trump. They are valuable assets to the preservation of this life and the people who exist here. They are worth so much more but speaking personally I give as much as I can to movements that I have tangible evidence make a difference. This is a very deserving and empathic group. It 's my honor to help them.
Friends of the Earth alerts me with important information on vital environmental issues and their political factors that enable me to confidently take action with my legislators. I admire and have supported their essential work without reservation -- until my ability to donate to them and other related caused recently became exhausted -- but I hope to renew donations before long.

I really like the work Friends of the Earth does to try to save this planet. I did not realize until recently that they were part of/connected with the Democratic party. For that reason, they fall below expectations. If they were an independent environmental action group I would have more faith in them.
Both parties in this Country take money from the fossil fuel industry, which puts us in a sad state of affairs. If the Democratic party divested from and did not accept money from the fossil fuel industry, I would have a better view of this organization.
What can I say? This group is working to protect our precious Mother Earth and doing a good job of it. The current government administration is trying to destroy this planet for profit and Friends of the Earth are fighting back. Thank you for your care.
I receive emails from Friends of the Earth regularly. I'm happy to sign their petitions aimed at protecting the planet. They keep track of current issues around the world that could impact the environment, pollinators like bees, our air & water. They are an organization doing good & deserve recognition for their efforts while the Trump administration seeks to destroy it all. I'm happy to donate & support them.
I am so grateful to Friends of the Earth for bringing the diminishing honey bee (and other pollinators) to the forefront! In MD we are fighting to have neonicinotides (sp) banned. ME Friends of the Earth helped with this campaign. We did not get this Bee Killer banned, but we did get plants using this pesticide labeled. The fight to ban it completely continues...
I support Friends of the Earth because they stand up to the wrong and detrimental policies of this current administration. Bees are what provide us with food, clean air and energy programs help keep our lungs clean and all their programs are to assist our environment to allow us better lives.
Friends of the Earth work hard to keep citizens informed about ecological and social problems by using social media. Friends of the Earth also collect signatures of concern people to help protect the environment and go after perpetrators.
