Be Resourceful: Get more of the good stuff

BPS recently launched Be Resourceful, a thoughtful consumption campaign designed to inspire Portlanders to get more of the good stuff in their lives.  
Local residents are already finding creative ways to get what they need while spending their limited time, money and energy on what matters most: enjoying healthier, more satisfying lifestyles and building strong relationships. Be Resourceful highlights the new opportunities and experiences you can create when you choose local resources to borrow, share and repair the things you need, and choose to buy for value, durability and utility. Thoughtful consumption allows us to look at everyday choices and purchases that reflect our values and to consider the upstream costs of goods and services.
The campaign kicks off with a focus on actions related to the being resourceful in the kitchen and will be promoted through an interactive game and resources at community events. There is also be an opportunity for Portland residents to share their own stories of resourcefulness at events and online.
