Customers who wish to participate in OBRC’s Containers for Change Program may simply leave their bag tag sticker off their Green Bag. OBRC uses 100% of the funds from containers in those bags to support nonprofits and advocacy organizations, as well as foundations, through the Containers for Change program. A portion of these funds go to support the Oregon Community Foundation’s BottleDrop Fund, a portion of the funds are used to support one or multiple featured nonprofit(s) and/or foundation(s) through a revolving fundraiser-of-the-month partnership, and a portion of the funds may be used by OBRC for things like matching BottleDrop Give contributions to nonprofits, supporting nonprofit and advocacy organizations working in the spirit of the Bottle Bill through things like grants and sponsorships, and supporting resilient communities through the OBRC Emergency Fund. In 2020, the OBRC Emergency Fund helped support the Oregon Food Bank during the COVID-19 pandemic and assisted communities and local fire departments heavily impacted by devastating forest fires. Updates about these partnerships will be included in BottleDrop’s monthly email newsletter.
