Clean Water

Ohio is enriched by its vast water resources, flowing from Lake Erie all the way to the Ohio River. The health and condition of Ohio’s waterways impact our quality of life, as we rely on them for safe drinking water, wildlife habitat, consumable fish, recreation, and shipping. Challenges stem from polluting industries, agricultural and stormwater runoff, urban development, sewer overflows, and more. The campaign advocates for solutions to prevent waterway pollution – working locally to protect our rivers, streams, tributaries, and wetlands across the state. Lake Erie protection is also critical for Ohio and includes efforts by both the Sierra Club Western Lake Erie and Northeast Ohio local groups.

pastplasticMy name is Myra Morehart and I am in my fifth year at the University of Cincinnati studying English. I have lived in Cincinnati my entire life and love this city. I want to do everything I can to make Cincinnati a cleaner and greener place. Johnna Jackson and I have been working together on a campaign called Cincinnati Past Plastic hoping to educate the community on plastic waste and to push the city to place a small fee on single-use plastic bags. This year we hope to host more screenings of the film Bag-It, educate folks on plastic waste at more community events, get as many postcards signed as possible, and to introduce our proposed legislation to City Council.

3Ever since Alexis was a child she always had a passion for the woods. In the small town of Chagrin Falls, Ohio she would always run into the local woods and always find interest in tiny critters. From tadpoles to toads, salamanders, and crawfish Alexis would always bring these creepy crawlers home as her new friends. Her mother; who didn’t understand why she would bring them home disliked it, but always supported her.
