We’ll see you Tuesday, August 16th at Bramling Cross in Ballard, 6:30-8:30PM for a cigarette litter survey and pickup. All are welcome!
In neighborhoods like Fremont and Capitol hill it is no surprise that the bustling nightlife leads to a hefty amount of cigarette butt litter every morning. The burden of cleaning it up usually falls on business owners, who have to sweep the sidewalks day after day. However, both Red Star Taco bar in Fremont and Rockbox in Capitol Hill have teamed up with Surfrider Seattle by installing a Surfrider cigarette canister outside their business to both keep their sidewalks clean and help to prevent cigarette litter from reaching local beaches.
