Downtown Retail Council Hosts SOLVE Earth Day Cleanup

Downtown Portland Clean & Safe and the Downtown Retail Council took to the streets on Earth Day to pick up litter in the downtown area.

On Earth Day, the Downtown Retail Council and Downtown Portland Clean & Safe hosted a SOLVE clean-up event to give back to our downtown community! The council gathered at Pioneer Place and within two hours volunteers picked up over 300 pounds of garbage. Several businesses were represented including: Apple, Brookfield Properties, Yin Yang Naturals, Minute Man Press, Portland Business Alliance, and SouthPark. Check out some snapshots of the volunteers who joined us downtown!

If your organization has been looking for an opportunity to aid the downtown community, hosting a SOLVE cleanup or joining one of SOLVE’s upcoming cleanups is a great way to do so! SOLVE’s volunteer projects are community-led and are available throughout the city. View their calendar of events, here:
