Houston Environmental News Update December 20, 2017

Happy holidays from your friends at the Citizens’ Environmental Coalition!

As you know, the CEC is dedicated to protecting the fragile environment of our Houston/Gulf Coast region. But to continue our important work, we need the assistance of generous people like you.

CEC carries out a variety of crucial initiatives, such as producing our weekly e-newsletter, Houston Environmental News Update; providing our friends with a continuous listing of environmental jobs in the Houston/Gulf Coast region; hosting unique annual events like the Wild & Scenic Film Festival On Tour, our Greater Houston Environmental Summit, and–with our partners–Earth Day Houston.

Without the generous donations of friends like you, the CEC would not be able to continue these vital efforts. That’s why, as we near the end of 2017, I’m asking you to consider making a holiday gift to the CEC. To make a donation in any amount, please click here.

Let’s redouble our efforts in the new year to preserve our water, air, land, and wildlife.

Sincerely,

Rachel Powers
Executive Director

Houston Environmental News Update December 13, 2017

The newest Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi, opens on Friday. The predecessor, The Force Awakens, tells the story of a professional recycler (“scavenger”) who becomes a hero with the opportunity to save the galaxy. OK, kindof a stretch, but recyclers ARE heroes. The Star Wars message that hope and determination in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds is one that we, as an environmental community, must embrace. May the force be with you!
Speaking of movies… Tickets are now on sale for the Wild & Scenic Film Festival On Tour, which CEC is hosting at the River Oaks Theatre on January 24 & 25, 2018.
