During Black History Month & throughout the year, we honor the important work of Black leadership in Oregon’s environmental movement. We sat down with @NAACPEugSpfld to talk about how their role as history keeper plays into this moment for climate. https://t.co/0LZNqnNgbx

Portland just adopted the Residential Infill Project, which will allow more density in single-dwelling zoned areas. As Portland redevelops over time, neighborhoods will be more supportive of transit, biking and walking for transportation, thus reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. It will allow more people more equitably the option to make a home in close-in neighborhoods with access to jobs, schools, services, stores, and community gathering places. OEC is proud to have supported this historic zoning reform. Thanks to @PNWelcome @1000oregon and many others! https://bit.ly/2PIYfrg

NEW STUDY: Nearly half of the food packaging tested from popular fast-food and health-conscious chains contained levels of fluorine that suggested PFAS treatment.

Read the full report, titled Packaged in Pollution, from Toxic-Free Future and the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families #MindTheStore campaign at saferchemicals.org/packaged-in-pollution
