Hint: This organization was voted "Best Activist Organization" in The Coast for 8 consecutive years. It was also voted one of the Globe and Mail's 10 best run charities in 2000. WOW.
The Basics: The Ecology Action Centre or EAC, is a "society in Nova Scotia that respects and protects nature and provides environmentally and economically sustainable solutions for its citizens."
Its purpose is threefold. It is to:
- Provide up-to-date environmental information;
- Pursue researched solutions; and
- Act as a watch-dog for the Nova Scotia environment.
The EAC does its work by operating through 7 major committees...

- Their values are clear and its grassroots approach is simple
