“The SoCon chocolate tour was fantastic! I really appreciated the opportunity to network with likeminded professionals who are passionate about sustainability and to learn how our local Portland businesses are incorporating sustainability into their practices.”

Dan Cronin

I was so inspired when I met others in the growing, socially conscious Portland community who believed and strived for many of the same things I did. We’re now working on some exciting community collaborations!”
