The Ecology Center is a Michigan‐based, nonprofit, environmental organization that works at the local, state and national levels for clean production, healthy communities, environmental justice, and a sustainable future.
Founded in 1970, the Ecology Center is the largest environmental organization in southeast Michigan, and has earned national recognition for its efforts to get toxics out of everyday products and help curb climate change in the Midwest. We conduct programs in Environmental Health & Green Chemistry, Climate & Energy, Sustainable Local Communities, and Green Business & Jobs.
Over the last few years, the Ecology Center:
• Helped persuade nearly 100 Michigan hospitals, including St. Joseph Mercy Health System, to use healthy, locally grown food in their operations..
• Created the nationally renowned HealthyStuff.org website, with results of more than 10,000 everyday products we tested for toxic substances, helping citizens convince manufacturers to provide safer, healthier products.
• Helped lead the 2010 campaign to renew the Washtenaw County Natural Areas and Farmland preservation program. Over the past 10 years, this program, along with related land preservation programs, has permanently protected more than 10,000 acres from development.
• Reached over 200 teachers (representing thousands of Michigan students) with professional development workshops in cutting‐edge K‐12 energy efficiency and renewable energy curricula.
Going forward, the Ecology Center is:
• Building support for a regional transit initiative that will provide thousands of low‐income, elderly, and widely dispersed Washtenaw County citizens access to improved and expanded public transportation.
• Expanding the www.AA350.org Project we lead to enhance understanding and participation in sound energy saving practices in homes and businesses throughout the City and beyond.
• Helping secure enough signatures to put the 25% by 2025 Renewable Energy Standard on the November 6 statewide ballot, positioning Michigan for thousands of new clean energy jobs.
• Helping Michigan manufacturers source components for their products made from safe, bio‐based materials, preventing Great Lakes pollution and harm to our state’s citizens.
