Celebrate Earth!

Welcome to Earth Month! We’re so excited about Earth Day that we decided to celebrate our planet all month (though, really, we celebrate nature every day here at ECO!).

This year, we’ve joined forces with Earth Day Oregon to elevate our cause and Earth Day. Earth Day Oregon is a new statewide, volunteer collaborative between sustainably-minded businesses and earth-focused nonprofits, like ECO, teaming up to create a big impact on Earth Day.


This Earth Month, ECO is partnering with these local businesses to inspire tomorrow’s environmental stewards:

All month long, the Portland Timbers will be donating proceeds from their Team Store, temporarily located at 1967 W Burnside. Check out the progress being done to update the stadium! Stock up on your Timbers and Thorns gear!

On Earth Day, Monday, April 22, ALL Portland area Townshend’s Teahouses will be donating 100% of proceeds to ECO! Start your Earth Day with a freshly brewed chai or cup of your favorite loose leaf tea.
