CAAT penned a letter to local polluter Owens-Brockway, and their parent corporation Owens-Illinois (O-I), regarding their polluting ways. Their permit for polluting Oregon is up for renewal this year. DEQ will have a public hearing on Wednesday, September 19th at NAYA (more on this later.) Thank you to Portland Clean Air, East Portland Air Coalition, Verde, Neighbors for Clean Air, and PDX North Harbor Neighbors for signing onto this letter with CAAT.
Our local Oregon State Senators and Reps decided to write their own letter as well, so the pressure is on.
Thank You Speaker Tina Kotek, Representative Barbara Smith Warner, Representative Tawna Sanchez, State Senator Lew Frederick, and State Senator Michael Dembrow for your letter to Owens-Brockway/Owens-Illinois!
O-I, cut your lead and chromium emission down to less than 1% of your current pollution emissions.
