This year’s Rise Above Plastic Pollution Day takes place at noon on March 15th.  Join the Surfrider Foundation and other groups to celebrate and rally around solutions to the plastic crisis. Hear from key Oregon leaders like U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley on why we need to take action now.

In 2019, when Governor Kate Brown first proclaimed Rise Above Plastic Pollution Day, the Governor also pledged to “be a smart shopper” by purchasing fruits and veggies that are not wrapped in plastic.

This third annual event is an occasion for all citizens to contemplate what action they can take to reduce use of plastics.

Surfrider, Environment Oregon, Oceana, and some special guests will share information on what we can do as a state to protect our environment and communities from plastic pollution.
