A Texas Free From Pollution
Texas Campaign for the Environment (TCE) has been organizing around its vision for a “Texas free from pollution” since 1991. In its early years, TCE helped get recycling and household waste in major Texas cities. In 2001, TCE helped close a grandfather loophole in the Texas Clean Air Act, which exempted all existing air polluters when the law was passed in 1971. In the 2000s, TCE helped pass state-level legislation that required producers to take back TVs and computers after identifying electronics laden with toxic metals as one of the fastest growing waste streams in the country.
