Founded in 1968 by concerned Oregonians across the state, the Oregon Environmental Council (OEC) is a membership-based, nonpartisan nonprofit. OEC is the first multi-issue, statewide environmental group in Oregon. Look at any “green” idea that put Oregon on the map over the last 50 years—the Bottle Bill, landmark land-use planning laws, curbside recycling—and you’ll find that OEC was integrally involved as a key collaborator behind these critical protections. OEC advocates for impactful, lasting solutions that get at the source of Oregon’s environmental problems and have real benefits for people’s health and quality of life.
