What is the name of your business or organization?
Waste-Free Advocates (formerly Recycling Advocates)
What does your business/organization do?
We empower and connect Oregon communities to minimize overconsumption and waste.
Tell us about your business/organization's recycling/sustainability practices.
We envision a waste-free Oregon with a thriving circular economy with access to zero-waste resources and education for all.
Our 4 goals/priorities for the coming year are:
- Be ambassadors for zero-waste.
- Engage new communities and voices.
- Support statewide composting.

How would you describe your work culture?
We are an all-volunteer-based board and our efforts are driven from individuals' passions to see Oregon become a more sustainable state.
What motivates your employees to meet your recycling/sustainability goals?
We do not currently have employees. However, every board member is personally dedicated to living a sustainable lifestyle.
If your business or organization was an animal, which one would it be and why?
A bee. We approach problems and solutions with a hive mentality and look to educate individuals and arm them with the resources to make positive sustainable changes. Kind of like a bee pollinating flowers, we want to spread our knowledge far and wide.
How did you learn about AOR?
Through board members.
