Recycling Advocates Year End Appeal

December 2018 | |

Our thanks to everyone who supported Recycling Advocates' work this year, we couldn't have done it without you! 

In 2018:
  • We took our "Bring Your Own Cup" message to street fairs, Eco-fairs, Fix-it fairs and environmental conferences, as well as to local coffee shops and cafes.
  • Our monthly e-newsletter kept readers informed about environmental issues and local events, and highlighted success stories from around the world.
  • We worked with coffee shops to help them improve processes to reduce waste, especially their dependence on single-use products. 
  • We were a part of producing Portland's first Zero Waste Conference.
  • We served on numerous panels, committees and teams, representing our members' perspectives on environmental issues.  
As a part of the global "Single-Use Movement" our BYOC campaign has real momentum, and we look forward to continuing the work in 2019 - but we need your help! With your financial support we will be able to spread the "BYOC" message further, raising consciousness of how our habits and behaviors can impact the environment.

Since 1987 our members' contributions and membership dues have supported our advocacy, outreach and campaign activities; past campaigns helped to promote and shape Oregon's bottle bill expansion, the E-Cycles program, Portland's plastic bag ban, and even the original Master Recycler program. 

If you've contributed recently thank you very much; but it you haven't contributed yet please support RA's important work with a tax-deductible contribution as 2018 draws to a close. 

Many thanks from Recycling Advocates' Board of Directors!
