Spend Earth Day with us, at the beach!

Earth Day 2016 is FRIDAY, April 22, and we’ll be setting up shop at Golden Gardens in Ballard! Come on out between 2-4pm,and look out for the blue Surfrider flag. We’ll have garbage bags, gloves and snacks for you! Last year it was a gorgeous day, and we had volunteers of all ages, families, co-workers, and community groups working together to remove piles of garbage from our beaches.

And hey, it’s Friday, what better way to start a fine spring weekend than cleaning our beautiful beach, and then sticking around and enjoying the benefits of digging your toes in the trash-free sand!

Call to action: comment on King County stormwater plan

King County wants public input by March 31 on their 2016 stormwater management plan. As we’ve cleaned up thousands of cigarette butts off the ground at local streets, beaches, and parks, we want the County to start taking cigarette litter seriously. As of March 2016, there are no local stormwater documents that acknowledge cigarette litter as a toxic, plastic waste product that is fatal to fish and other marine life.

New research shows prevalence of cigarette litter at UW

A team of UW student volunteers- Annalee Capellano, Rebeca Zhu Cao, and Corina Yballa have been documenting cigarette litter on campus as part of the Seattle Surfrider’s Hold On To Your Butts program. Their research shows how designated smoking areas lack signs and lack effective cigarette receptacles that could greatly reduce the amount of toxic litter currently piling up around campus. Check it out here: http://cigarette-litter-of-seattle.silk.co/

HOTYB successes in 2015

Seattle Surfrider had a great 2015, and we just want to send a shout out and THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to the awesome successes of the Hold On To Your Butt program! In 2014, we donated 2 cigarette cans to Alki Beach through Seattle Parks, and sold only 1 cigarette can, so the numbers below show significant growth.
