Friend, thank you for taking action to clean up toxic pollution from cement plants and protect our right to breathe clean air.

i read an interesting article, but I can't remember where, about the future of cement plants changing their formulas so much they might be able to create a process that would become CO2 negative...i.e. take in CO2 from our atmosphere....that would be awesome, but I can't remember where I read it unfortunately....this is signed!

The petition was closed and an update said the EPA gave them 2 years. We need to keep fighting.
