My friend Chloe just published an zero waste guide to Portland, Oregon, where she lives. You already knew this, but Portland is pretty much a zero waster's dream. Compost, co-ops, community - so much good stuff is happening there for people interested in living more sustainably. You can check out her tips for where to shop package-free and secondhand in Portland, ideas for places to eat and hang out, and sign on to get involved in the PDX zero waste community. If you're interested, you can find her city guide here.
