Campaign Earth is dedicated to building a movement for climate justice all across Maine. We organize actions and events to build a world that is just and sustainable for all who live here. Our organization provides the resources for communities to access solar energy, fight against extreme energy threats in Maine, and support youth work across the state.
Sarah Lachance founded Campaign Earth in 2001, immediately following the birth of her first child. Motivated by the overwhelming desire to protect the planet for all future generations, Campaign Earth was created. For the first decade of its work, CE focused on a monthly challenge program that allowed people from around the country to take one step each month to lower their personal carbon footprint. In addition to thousands of individuals taking the challenge, the program was implemented in schools, places of worship, and businesses around the United States.
