As You Sow’s toxic enforcement cases often result in settlement agreements that include monetary restitution. As You Sow ensures that the citizens of California benefit from these monies by utilizing them for investigation, research, and enforcement of environmental laws.
These monies also fund our grant program which strengthens the excellent work of numerous non-profit organizations with similar goals related to toxics reduction, environmental education, protection of communities, and enforcement.
Since 1992, As You Sow has granted out over $2.1 million to over 100 organizations doing work related to toxics reduction, environmental education, and environmental justice.
