Healthy Homes Master Class

If you’re already using green cleaning products, buying recycled and saving energy,  you care about how your home makes a difference for the health of Oregon’s environment. But is your home also a healthy environment for you and your family? Join us to discover the finer points of healthy homes in this workshop presented by Oregon Environmental Council at the Pringle Creek Community on January 26.

This class will dive deeper into the concept of an “eco-healthy home,” asking questions about the origin of hazardous chemicals in the history of science and the economy. If there are 55 toxics typically found in household dust, where do they come from? How do we know whether these toxics are harming health, and how can we stop the toxic treadmill?

Care about a healthy Oregon? Join us!

It is impossible to separate your health from the health of your environment.  Whether it’s the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, or the products we use in our daily lives, our exposure to toxics and pollution is shaping our future. These exposures are linked to lifelong chronic health issues, and Oregon’s most vulnerable–children, elderly and communities of color–are most at risk. Add an uncertain climate future to the mix–and action is dire.

Healthy Soil, Healthy Oregon

Plants need nutrients in order to provide us with the food and fiber we need to survive. And while farmers are cost-conscious, over 50% of the fertilizer applied to major U.S. crops washes out as runoff or leaches into our water supply. The result is wasted money for farmers, contaminated drinking water and increased incidence of toxic algae blooms in our rivers, lakes and streams. Unused nitrogen fertilizer that leaches into groundwater or washes into streams can lead to nitrate pollution
