Cleaning our world up one block at a time!
Bottom Line for Portland
Portland is starting to become cleaner thanks to our 4700+ Block Ambassador volunteers. Cleaning up Portland isn't a spectator sport. It takes all of us, participating and contributing where we can to change the trajectory of the city we love. Your contribution directly supports providing cleanup tools for your neighbors and friends who are doing their fair share and a little bit extra to make our blocks, neighborhood and city cleaner and happier.
"This is vital and we should do everything we can to support it." Chuck M, Block Ambassador
“Not only does our work make for a cleaner block, it has also given me the opportunity to connect with my neighbors.” Jericho K, Block Ambassador
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
We believe that EVERYONE, in all neighborhoods, regardless of socioeconomics should live in a clean, safe and inviting community. Our program aims to remove the many barriers in place with other cleanup models and to ensure that we all have an equal opportunity to care for the blocks, neighborhoods, and communities we all call home.

Nysa Vinyards: Great Oregon Pinot noir is made in the vineyard. Through the grace of nature, from soil to vine, barrel to bottle, we offer Dionysus’ gift to your table. Nysa Vineyard sits at 600-720 feet elevation in the Dundee Hills of Oregon’s northern Willamette Valley. The vineyard spans 40 acres of volcanic Jory soil with basalt bedrock 8 to 12 feet below the surface.
Von Ebert Brewing: Local Independent Craft Brewery where tradition meets evolution in our beer, pub food that has been elevated, and always quality over quantity. Von Ebert Brewing’s Volatile Substance IPA, The Oregonian/OregonLive’s 2019 Beer of the Year, was named the top American IPA at the Great American Beer Festival September 2021!
Salt & Straw: A Portland favorite. We make ice cream about the ingredients we use and the farms and artisans they come from. About how we cook and freeze and candy and sort and burn and smash and hand-drizzle and ribbon and spoon and sprinkle all of our ingredients in intriguing and unexpected ways.
Pizza Schmizza: Get ready for fun and great New York pizza when you enter the door of a “Schmizza”! Each store is different and yet you’ll always know you’re in a Schmizza. You may be greeted by a looming Tyrannosaurus Rex, or sit at a table showcasing a zany array of Pez dispensers.
