Innovative Policies

Many of the issues that the Ecology Center work on go beyond the scope of individual’s choices and into the realm of policy. By tackling these issues at the policy level, we are not only able to provide individuals with more and better healthy choices, but we’re able to ensure that companies operate at a higher standard.

Everything we do is in pursuit of healthier people and a healthier planet.
