Your life

At the Oregon Environmental Council we engage Oregonians by developing and implementing projects that help them act on their environmental values in their basic roles as parents, homeowners, consumers, drivers, and citizens.

By helping individual Oregonians - as well as businesses, farmers, and other organizations - we believe we can help Oregon  thrive economically while contributing to environmental improvement.

Check out the resources below for how you can make some easy choices every day to live a little greener, and healthier too.
