The Environmental Law Alliance Worldwide is a global alliance of attorneys, scientists and other advocates collaborating across borders to promote grassroots efforts to build a sustainable, just future.

ELAW advocates, working in their home countries, know best how to protect the environment. By giving their partners the legal and scientific support they need, ELAW helps challenge environmental abuses and builds a worldwide corps of skilled, committed advocates working to protect ecosystems and communities for generations to come.


ELAW advocates play key roles in helping communities pursue environmental justice. They help citizens participate effectively in decisions about the environment, challenge environmental abuses, and enforce environmental laws. They publish guides to citizen participation, train community "paralegals" to represent community interests, and bring legal action to stop the worst offenders.


In 2019 they helped ensure single-use plastic bans passed, and enforcement ordered. In 2020, the Thabametsi coal plant was defeated, protecting communities, water, and the climate.

If you also want to give back to The Environmental Law Alliance Worldwide here is how you can donate to them.

Every month we’ll continue to highlight and donate to non-profit organizations that are in service to DOB’s three core principles; sustainable, inclusive, local.
