Description

The environment has never been in more danger.

TEXAS CAMPAIGN FOR THE ENVIRONMENT (TCE) envisions a Texas free from pollution. As the largest environmental group in Texas organizing support through door-to-door canvassing, grassroots is both who we are and what we do.

Amongst other landmark victories, we've recently accomplished:
- Fort Worth-based Pier 1 Imports phasing out out toxic flame retardants in their furniture
- Houston Mayor Annise Parker bringing curbside recycling to all Houston households
- Rayovac publicly announcing its support for manufacturer-led battery recycling programs

Our dedicated year-round presence in our community (no matter who is in office!), and the crucial grassroots organizing that we do every day, has resulted in monumental changes in our state and local environmental policies, and we've held corporate polluters accountable for their actions! TCE has truly pioneered a community-based structure of organizing. Now we need your help to tackle our most recent problems:

• Improving battery recycling to stop toxins leaching out of our leaking landfills.
• Fighting to protect communities' rights to act on polluting industries, such as fracking in neighborhoods.
• Actively working to expand recycling to the 50% of DFW residents who currently do not have access.
• Strengthening enforcement on oil and gas companies choosing the break the law rather than clean up their act.

If you're looking for a way to make an impact in the community, earn a living, and to create tangible change for the planet this is the right job for you!
