National Resource Defense Council
National Resource Defense Council (NRDC) is one of the most effective environmental action group in the USA. Active members like Robert Redford and Robert F. Kennedy add panache to what many consider a "ho-hum" topic--the environment. Over one million online activist members bring the power of the Internet to bear on recalcitrant companies, politicians and agencies.
