Oregon Environmental Council’s mission is to advance innovative, collaborative solutions to Oregon’s environmental challenges for today and future generations.
Impact Summary from the Nonprofit - We protected more than 45,000 infants and toddlers in 44 states by endorsing more than 1,100 child care facilities as “eco-healthy”, including 300 daycares in Oregon. Eco-Healthy Child Care providers commit to reducing children's exposure to toxics and other environmental health hazards. - We safeguarded school-age children from exposure to pesticides through legislation that requires the use of safer non-toxic and least-toxic pest control in Oregon schools. - We protected school kids from future asthma attacks and long-term health threats triggered by exposure to diesel exhaust through legislation that accelerates the clean-up and replacement of dirty diesel school buses. - We helped achieve the strongest ban in the nation of the toxic flame retardant, Deca-BDE, which contaminates our bodies and our watersheds. - We ensured that oil companies will begin to do their fair share to slow global warming through passage of legislation that requires development of a low-carbon fuel standard. This standard will reduce the carbon content of Oregon’s transportation fuel by 10% by 2020. - We embedded sustainability concepts into state transportation policies, which will reduce the environmental impacts of moving people and goods by changing the way Oregon plans and builds its transportation system. - We protected Oregon’s rivers from pollution by working with local partners in Southern Oregon and the Willamette Valley to adopt water-quality friendly development practices that reduce stormwater pollution. - We supported the economic vitality of sustainably produced food by working with a group of cranberry growers on the South Coast to launch a sustainable brand – Clearwater Cranberries. - We catalyzed an initiative to build the nation’s first large-scale “living building” that will put Oregon on the map for ecological innovation. A “living building” gives back more energy and water than it takes and avoids the use of toxic materials.
