Advocacy

Advocacy

BRING’s board and staff engage in advocacy for causes, ideas, and public policies that support our mission and strategic goals. Our advocacy centers on developing Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) policies and programs. EPR reduces waste by making producers responsible for the treatment or disposal of post-consumer products. Currently BRING is advocating for a safe and responsible drug take-back policy for Oregon.

BRING’s supporters represent a broad cross-section of the political spectrum. We do not support one candidate over another candidate and do not support any political parties. BRING seeks to work with all political parties in legislative efforts.
