Reduce pollution. Save lives. Protect the planet.

December 26, 2019

Over the past 20 years, Pure Earth has addressed toxic pollution in over 120 project locations through assessment, remediation, risk mitigation and more.  See our approach for details.  These projects have impacted approximately 5 million people – 20% of those being children under six. Families in many of these communities will live longer, have less intellectual impairment, cancer and other diseases.

Here is a countdown (in no particular order) of some of our successful projects. They are examples of the wide variety of work we do to solve pollution around the world with your continued support. Thank you for helping us do so much.
