Louisiana Bucket Brigade uses grassroots action to hold the petrochemical industry and government accountable for the true costs of pollution. They work to create an informed, healthy society that hastens the transition from fossil fuels.
"Our organization began with a clear purpose: to support communities whose health and homes are devastated by the petrochemical industry. The air sampling bucket exemplifies our commitment to putting power in the hands of people, and getting these communities in the media and elevating their work is a core part of what we do. We also generate tools to help people document pollution."
The Bucket Brigade is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, supported entirely by private donations from individuals, foundations and other like-minded organizations.
