 U.S. PIRG Education Fund and PIRG’s affiliated mutual fund company Green Century Capital Management, have been pressuring McDonald’s about environmental and public health issues for several years. Now, we’re working to hold McDonald’s accountable to its promises to improve factory farming conditions and reduce antibiotic use in the beef it buys.

The 2022 Colorado legislative session was a productive one. Here at CoPIRG, we’re celebrating a lot. Bills to ban PFAS from many consumer products, and develop a producer responsibility waste system to cut unnecessary packaging and expand curbside recycling. The nation’s first non-vehicular Right to Repair bill and a nation-leading bill on consumer protections around predatory towing. We also saw new protections from toxic air pollutants and major investments in electric school buses, e-bikes, fare-free transit, Bustang, and cleaner buildings. 

News Release | CoPIRG

With a $68 million investment, the Colorado Legislature approved a bill to provide at least a month of statewide fare-free transit this summer, a near doubling of the Bustang bus service for the next three years and an additional investment in a successful program that improves the safety and comfort of main streets. The bill is based on a November proposal by Gov. Jared Polis aimed at tackling ozone pollution. The bill now heads to the governor’s desk for signature into law.
