I receive mail from an organization called Earth Justice. I went to their website and found excellent photos, such as the one above, and on their Home Page was this statement:
Earthjustice is a non-profit public interest law firm dedicated to protecting the magnificent places, natural resources, and wildlife of this earth, and to defending the right of all people to a healthy environment.
A healthy environment is consistent with my Earth Day, Every Day philosophy, so this is my offering #27.

These statements are also from their website, www.earthjustice.org, whose motto is: “Because the earth needs a good lawyer”:
- Earthjustice is the largest public interest environmental law firm in the world, and has represented more than 1,000 public interest clients free of charge.
- Earthjustice cases have reduced logging in Northwest national forests, cleaned up the air across the nation, and protected more endangered species than any other environmental agency.
- Earthjustice is working for the public good. They sue to strengthen and enforce the laws that protect us.
- Earthjustice’s policy experts in Washington, DC, work to advance legislative solutions, and to protect environmental laws such as the Clean Air Act and the Endangered Species Act.
- Earthjustice’s clients are community-based organizations, national environmental organizations (e.g. NRDC) and public health groups (e.g. American Lung Association)
- Major long-term issues Earthjustice works on include: preserving our national heritage, promoting a clean energy future, and protecting human health.
- Earthjustice takes environmental polluters to court and wins. They average more than 40major victories a year, which set far-reaching precedents.
- A gift to Earthjustice does double-duty, supporting their work and adding clout to many environmental and community organizations that they represent.
