About Us

Quiet Clean PDX

We are a volunteer-powered effort working to eliminate the use of gas powered leaf blowers in order to stop the harm that these tools cause to workers, the public and the environment. We are working to raise awareness of this issue, educate the public about healthier alternatives and practices and establish common sense regulation in the Portland area and across Oregon.

Taking care of our green spaces and outdoor areas shouldn’t put our health or environment at risk. Unfortunately, the equipment and practices used today expose us to toxic air pollutants, dangerous dust, deafening noise, and harm our soil, water, plants, and wildlife habitat.

We believe that a combination of working with nature, choosing gas-free tools, shifting expectations about aesthetics, and establishing common sense regulation will help protect workers, the public, and our environment.

We know that to bring about an effective and equitable transition away from gas equipment requires a collaboration of many perspectives. Since 2018 we have been meeting with concerned residents, landscapers, contractors, public health and air quality experts, nature experts, and local city and county leaders. We look forward to continuing and expanding these discussions to build a just solution.
