PORTLAND, OR . (April 25, 2017) Portland Brewing Company made a positive contribution to the environment this Earth Day by volunteering with the Hoyt Arboretum Visitor Center. Brewery employees removed ivy and other debris from the Rhododendron collection, improving trails, maintaining the integrity of the trees and sustaining arbor collections. Portland Brewing had 38 employees participate with the cleanup at Hoyt Arboretum Visitor Center, donating a total of 114 hours.

This effort marks the second consecutive year that employees used Earth Day to help compensate for the Brewery’s use of natural resources by creating positive environmental value in the community.

“We’re always looking to measure and reduce the environmental impacts we have on our community,” said Robert Rentsch, general manager for Portland Brewing. “Volunteerism is another way we can protect and steward our natural resources and improve our footprint. Through our volunteer time off program, we pay our employees to help keep our shorelines clean, maintain our nature trails and keep litter and waste out of our neighborhoods.”

Portland Brewing’s parent company North American Breweries plans to invest a minimum of 6,000 volunteer hours this year to impact communities all over the United States. Employees are asked to volunteer between 8 to 16 hours each, with emphasis on environmental projects.

“As a brewery, we are measured by our ability to not only brew and sell beer but to also contribute to issues that are important to our communities and connect back to our footprints,” said Rentsch. “Our employees look forward to partnering with organizations that preserve our environment through our volunteer time off program.”
