UNTONNE offers subscriptions for emission reduction and reforestation solutions. Nearly 3 billion people worldwide lack the resources to afford a safe and efficient cookstove that gets smoke out of the home and keeps kids from getting burned. Untonne members help pay down the cost of these stoves, and, in the process reduce emissions equal to some or all of their members’ carbon footprint
MAMA & HAPA’S ZERO-WASTE SHOP will have a selection of their wonderful products for purchase. Ross Ching and his wife, Nadia Takla, are owners of Mama & Hapa’s Zero Waste Shop. It’s a store where you can refill a lot of non-edible household goods from shampoo to laundry liquid to floor cleaner. The term “Hapa” is popular in Hawaii to signify someone who is of mixed race so it fit perfectly with Ross’ Chinese and Caucasian descent. Inspired by other zero waste shops, they set out to make the customer experience more fluid, quicker, and cater to average people with 4 goals; provide free containers, eliminate weighing, be affordable, and be nearby. With the goal of many shops across the Portland metro area to change consumption habits!
PLEASE SORT ALL RECYCLING – WE WILL NOT ACCEPT UNSORTED RECYCLING. ITEMS WITH RECYCLING NUMBERS MUST BE SORTED BY THAT NUMBER
