Led by Founding Director Anne Rolfes, The Louisiana Bucket Brigade uses grassroots action to create an informed, healthy society that holds the petrochemical industry and government accountable for the true costs of pollution. Among Bucket Brigade’s many initiatives is the implementation of the EPA-approved “bucket", a simple, easy-to-use tool fenceline neighbors can operate to take air samples. The data produced from these samples is just as good as monitoring data from the EPA or LDEQ and captures emissions from within the communities most affected.
