A Surfrider Portland specific program alongside the City of Portland, where we clean up various bioswales, streets, and sidewalks to help keep our City of Roses clean.
The Surfrider Foundation’s Ocean Friendly Restaurants program tackles plastic pollution at its source. One restaurant, one customer at a time, it increases awareness, drives behavior change, and ultimately creates scalable impact to reduce our plastic footprint.
Rise Above Plastics is designed to eliminate the impacts of plastics in the marine environment by raising awareness about the dangers of plastic pollution and by advocating for a reduction of single-use plastics and the recycling of all plastics.
Let's keep those nasty chemicals (and plastic!) from cigarette butts out of our storm drains, rivers, and environment as a whole.
The Blue Water Task Force (BWTF), is the Surfrider Foundations volunteer-run, water testing, education and advocacy program. Our chapters use this program to alert the public and officials in their communities about water quality problems and to work toward solutions. The Portland Chapter funds BWTF for the North Coast Chapter.
