With Oregon's green reputation, you might think the transition away from toxic chemicals was well underway. But the state faces a number of challenges, not the least of which is the lack of coordination and communication among agencies, nonprofits, researchers and the need for more robust and accessible information about the chemicals we use. By taking the right steps, Oregon can draw upon its "green" talent and industry to become a national leader in the transition to safer chemicals.
