Dynamic, nimble and effective, the Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF) is working to secure a world where natural habitats and environments can sustain, and be sustained by, the communities that depend upon them for their basic needs and livelihoods.
EJF is working to protect the oceans, end pirate fishing and stamp out the human rights abuses driven by this illicit activity. By doing so we aim to protect the millions of people that depend on our oceans and for the magnificent and varied wildlife that call them home.
Over two thirds of the worlds cotton is grown in developing countries and the former Soviet Union. Valued at over $32 billion every year, global cotton production should be improving lives. But this "white gold" too often brings misery.
EJF is committed to eradicating child labour and the deadliest pesticides from cotton production and promoting organic alternatives.
