Protect Our Children and their Families

The Coalition needs your financial donations to fund the fight to clean Laredo’s air.

The Clean Air Laredo Coalition is a grassroots campaign to remove cancer-causing Ethylene Oxide from the air that we breathe.

After months of investigating EPA and self-reported data about Ethylene Oxide emissions spewing from the Midwest Sterilization plant in the Killam Industrial Park, the news organizations ProPublica and the Texas Tribune published their findings, which were reported in the Laredo Morning Times, front page, on Dec. 28, 2021.

We will not accept this dangerous pollution in Laredo. You can make a difference. Join our effort to clean Laredo’s air for our children and their families.

“Communities such as Laredo, where the vast majority of the residents are Latino and more than a quarter live in poverty, have been left in the dark for years by regulators who had evidence of the dangers posed by ethylene oxide but never told the public about them.”

“Midwest’s Laredo plant released far more ethylene oxide on average than any other sterilizer plant in the country during the five-year period covered by the analysis, which used emissions estimates that Midwest reported to the EPA.”
