Here at The Environmental Center, we get asked a lot of questions – from individuals, families, businesses, etc. – about how to live a sustainable lifestyle here in Central Oregon. And that’s what we’re here for! To educate and inspire everyone to change a behavior (or two, or three…) to live lighter on our planet. We understand that it can be confusing at times. You’re trying to do your part but there are many questions and challenges along the way. (Don’t worry, you’re not the only one!) That’s why our team has created Enviro Answers! We’re here to answer common questions, YOUR questions, about sustainability in our community. So far, we’ve released seven episodes answering questions including: “Which plastic bags can I recycle,” and “What’s a ductless heat pump?” We encourage you to check out our YouTube channel for an archive of Enviro Answer episodes. Each video is under 2 minutes! Here’s the most popular one to date, addressing which types of lids are recyclable here in Deschutes County.
We hope you find this series helpful, and we hope you share all this great info with neighbors and friends! And if you have your OWN question that needs an answer, send it our way. You can submit any questions to our staff right here. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you on your quest to be sustainable!
