The staff of the Oregon Environmental Council are passionate about the topics they share with the public. The handouts give the audience information to refer back to as needed. Jen Coleman holds the attention of her audience and is always listed as one of the top speakers when the evaluations come in from the Yamhill County Master Recycler Program.

I recently worked with the Oregon Environmental Council to help Multnomah County move ahead on a hazardous chemical reduction strategy we call our Healthy Purchasing Initiative. Support from OEC's outstanding staff--including policy research and stakeholder coordination--was instrumental in moving the project forward. It has been great for me and for the county to have their help over the last several years on a whole range of issues. OEC is a partner we know we can count on and I highly recommend them.

OEC staff Jen Coleman has given very informative presentations to the Master Composter/Recyclers at our annual training sessions. Jen's presentation style is dynamic, enjoyable and informative. Some comments from the class evaluations attest to this quality:
“informative, easy to understand, well organized”
“great energy and passion”
“very interesting”

Thanks Jen and OEC!

I teach environmental science at a community college in Portland. Jen Coleman from OEC has given several fantastic presentations to my classes about the chemicals and other toxins found in personal care products. Her presentations are fantastic and inspirational, and give us the 'cold hard truth' a in straightforward and easy to understand way. These presentations are spreading a very important message into the hands of the community.
