Environmentalists love Portland!

With farm-to-table restaurants, local breweries, and community-based retailers, Portland sets the bar high when it comes to living sustainably.

The city also has various green initiatives to reduce negative environmental impact and improve quality of life for locals. There are 100s of ecoroofs throughout the city; the added green space helps absorb carbon dioxide, they create habitats for insects and birds, and absorb storm water. The city is also committed to green streets, planting thousands of trees along roadways and lawns in recent years.
