On February 24, 2021, Columbia Riverkeeper hosted Homebodies & Waterbodies, a webinar with Dr. Arlene Blum. She shared her inspirational story and how she uses strong science to fight for healthier products, healthier homes, and a healthier environment. She helped us understand how the chemicals found in household products make their way to the Columbia River and what we can do about it.

We’re all spending a lot more time at home these days, but guess what? You can fight pollution without even leaving your house! Check out our tips (en Español) on how to keep the Columbia safe from household pollutants.

Thanks for helping to keep the Columbia clean!
