The Clean Air Action Network of Glens Falls

The Clean Air Action Network was formed in March 2019 to reduce air pollution in the greater Glens Falls Area and protect public health. CAAN’s mission is to achieve a healthier environment and a more socially just, sustainable economy through grassroots organizing, public education, thoughtful analysis and strategic action. We also work to implement Zero Waste principles and practices throughout Warren County.

Glens Falls

Both the cement plant and the paper mill are major employers as well as important manufacturing facilities. It is not CAAN’s aim to shut them down, but for them to significantly reduce the amount and toxicity of pollutants that they release into the air and other media. Members of CAAN’s Pollution Watchdog Group are currently gathering information on Lehigh and Finch and studying opportunities for sustainable production and pollution prevention. Wheelabrator does not serve nearly the same purpose as these other companies, and we are invested in shutting them down completely.
