Green Delaware



Green Delaware is a grassroots organization concerned with environmental and public health issues in Delaware and surrounding states. We advocate policies consistent with good health, preservation of biodiversity, and long term sustainability. We believe that achieving these ends also requires progress towards human relationships based on peace, justice, and democratic forms of government.

Detailed Information:
Green Delaware is both a new organization, founded in 1995, and an old organization, in the sense that we draw on close relationships with long-established organizations such as Delaware Citizens for Clean Air and the Coalition for Nuclear Power Postponement. Activities for Green Delaware in 1999 will continue to focus on solid waste (we oppose garbage incineration and support recycling) and water quality (we want the City of Wilmington, DE, to stop discharging untreated sewage into its rivers.) Our greatest achievement of 1998 was securing the passage of Senate Bill 98 in to law and thus banning garbage incineration in Delaware's "Coastal Zone." The Coastal Zone includes the proposed Pigeon Point incinerator site between New Castle and Wilmington, and a strip along the entire Delaware coastline on the Delaware River and Bay. The previous year, 1997, we endured the State's demands for a membership list, which were withdrawn after we held a press conference about it.
