Here is a list of our current campaigns, to support our mission of engaging citizens to reduce, reuse and recycle
|Single-Use Coffee Cup Reduction (BYOC)|
Our campaign began in 2016, and has worked with over 20 coffee shops to educate customers on coffee cups, and encourage ways to reduce cups going to the landfill or contaminating the recycling stream.
Campaign Leader: Brion Hurley
With all the plastic in the world, there is a strong need to reduce our use of plastic. Until then, what do we do with the existing plastic, to make it valuable and prevent use of other materials? Upcycling plastic can be done in many different ways, and we will be tackling a few of these methods, such as road filling, conversion to fuel and re-purposing at home.
Campaign Leader: Scott Rosin
In 2018, we held our inaugural Zero Waste Conference. Look for more events and initiative in 2020!
Campaign Leader: Brittney Wendell and Evelyn Ferreira
For most of our history, we have had a focus on legislation at the state level, with efforts focus in Portland. This campaign will be working to take best practices from the Westside Master Recycler group (among others) to engage local communities around the state in being more sustainable.
Campaign Leader: Roberta Sommer
