Beyond Toxics will act responsibly and aggressively to protect the public and the environment from toxic poisoning.
Beyond Toxics works for all Oregonians to expose root causes of toxic pollution and helps communities find solutions that protect human and environmental health.
We are happy to work with Oregon non-profits, businesses or individuals to make presentations for community groups, schools and faith organizations within our program areas: air quality, environmental justice and pesticide reform.
“Beyond Toxics represents the finest culmination of hard-working individuals that produce the results we can all live by. Our industry, livelihoods and communities are dependent upon a healthy landscape, and our prospects would be very bleak indeed if we did not have the steadfast commitment of Beyond Toxics.”
- Shawn Donnille, Vice President, Mountain Rose Herbs
“…they [Beyond Toxics] serve as thought leaders in the regional conversation on toxics reform and have influenced and mobilized public opinion for change through rigorous grassroots organizing.”

On two different occasions in the last few years, Eugene Weekly has praised our work:
“OTA (now Beyond Toxics) works its rear end off to protect people, especially but not only kids and low-income and rural folks, from harmful pollutants. No cute kittens or other charismatic macrofauna can convey the depth of OTA’s commitment to cleaning up and keeping safe our land, waterways and air.”
“…we’ve been following this remarkable Eugene-based group since it formed in 2000. OTA (now Beyond Toxics) has successfully linked environmental research with advocacy and applied a social justice approach to environmental protection at the state and local levels….”
“Just want you to know I saw the excellent film about the horrible subject of chemical trespass presented by Beyond Toxics. I shared it on FB and referenced Beyond Toxics’ website so people could find out more about campaigns for environmental protection. Thank you for your wonderful presence.”
~ Carter McKenzie

your fine work and your organization’s new name. Yours is one of the few
dynamic environmental organizations that actually gets things done.”

In response to this R-G article about the legal ruling requiring the Port of Coos Bay to release records…
“…bravo to you and your organization for standing up for the people of Coos County and all citizens of Oregon. This milestone event would never have happened without you all, Sierra Club, and FLOW working tenaciously for every one’s constitutional right to know what the Coos Bay Port Authority planned to do to us and our environment. This tribesman knows full well what the dominant culture is capable of when seeking industrial growth and jobs at any cost for the benefit of a few. Let’s continue to protect the commons for the benefit of all citizens and future generations.”
~ David Petrie, Coos Waterkeeper (a member of Waterkeeper Alliance)
