I just got my Environmental Defense Fund bumper sticker in the mail!
I voted in their Earth Day bumper sticker challenge and for doing so, I was sent the winning slogan:
They get more profits, you get more cancer.
Wondering what this means? According to EDF:
- America’s coal-fired power plants produce billions in profits every year for corporate polluters, but release hundreds of thousands of tons of mercury, arsenic, acid gases and other toxic air pollution.
- 1 out of every 10 American women of childbearing age have potentially dangerous levels of mercury in their blood stream that could cause brain damage in their babies.
- For every $1 invested in pollution control technologies, $30 in broader economic benefits are generated in the form of technological innovation, energy efficiency, more productive and healthy workers, and avoided illnesses and hospitalizations.
Support EDF in their fight to hold corporate polluters accountable.
