  • Give When You Shop – Planet Oregon Wines, Fred Meyer & Amazon

    For every bottle of Soter Vineyards - Planet Oregon wine you purchase, a portion of the proceeds goes to OEC! See here for more details.

    Link your Fred Meyer Rewards Card to Oregon Environment Council, or sign up for an account here. You can sign up for one at the Customer Service Desk of any Fred Meyer store. Fred Meyer stores donate $2 million a year via their Community Rewards program to non-profits in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

  • Give When You Recycle

    OEC led the way in rallying Oregonians to support 1971's Bottle Bill. Now, it's easy to "donate your dimes" (the refund of your deposit fees) to OEC via the Bottle Drop "Green Bag" program. You can direct your donations to OEC via this link.
