Defend Clean Car Standards
EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is re-opening the review of clean car standards to get a chance at slashing fuel efficiency standards and slamming the brakes on clean car progress. We need to tell the EPA that Mainers support clean car standards because they protect our public health and our environment while saving consumers money. Tell the EPA that you want cleaner car standards.

Join NRCM and friends in Portland on Monday, October 16th at 4:00 p.m. to be among the first to see Anthony Bourdain’s new film, “Wasted: The Story of Food Waste.” This is a free event, but space is limited, so be sure to reserve your seat today.

NRCM is partnering with Save Passamaquoddy Bay to sell handmade Passamaquoddy baskets.
You can own a piece of Down East history and help Save Passamaquoddy Bay by ordering one today. We are selling the baskets for $200 each, with an additional $11 for tax and $25 for shipping and handling. A portion stays with NRCM to fund our work protecting Maine’s environment, but the majority of each sale supports Save Passamaquoddy Bay’s work. This is a rare opportunity to support two groups, own a piece of Native American history, and be part of saving glorious and abundant Passamaquoddy Bay.
