2023.02.07 The BNA Clean & Green Team's focus has helped to keep our neighborhood litter free, pretty by organizing professional landscaping for the triangle entry at Gantenbein and by promoting, advocating for a healthy environment in the Bridgeton neighborhood.
In 2020, we started working with Cascadia Action mostly to partner with surrounding neighborhood associations support in asking industries to maintain the highest quality standards for clean emissions.
Last year, in 2022, we started partnering with the City of Portland's Adopt One Block program. Volunteers choose a block near their residence and spend a few hours each month keeping it litter free. We're getting to the point of full coverage of our whole neighborhood!
This year, 2023 we are helping to collect air samples, then advocating for ways to reduce diesel pollution in our neighborhood. This report from Portland Clean Air describes how our own immune system deals with the deleterious effects of diesel pollution. It tells us that we better focus even more now.
