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.

These toxic chemicals can migrate to the food inside. Once packaging with #PFAS is discarded, these #ForeverChemicals can pollute the environment—and even end up in food crops.
