With all the rapturous New York Times articles, rampant global warming, and our excellent selection of JELL-O shots, there’s never been a better time to say you’re from Portland. But, let’s be honest, Nike or Intel just moved you here, and while you’re super excited to take public transportation every day and eat at all our good restaurants, there are at least 28 things you've got to do before you can say you're from the PDX...

3. Start composting
