Seattle wa cleanup

Seattle wa cleanup

Jul 29, 2019

Seattle | Washington   

Date
July 27th, 2019

Haul:
608 lbs.

On Saturday, July 27th 2019, United By Blue, Washington Coast Savers, Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuaries Foundation, Pacwesty & Seattle Parks and Rec. and 171 volunteers came out to contribute towards our Waterway Cleanup Tour as we took on our first West Coast city of the year. We pulled 608 lbs of small trash and debris that washed up along the rocky shoreline of Elliott Bay, an inlet of the Puget Sound. Volunteers cleaned the shoreline from Myrtle Edwards Park, with the help of the Seattle Parks and Rec Dept., and pulled debris like plastic bags, straws, and lost-at-sea fishing line out of the rocks and park coastline. Volunteers even saved a bay crab trapped in fishing line and released it back into the Sound, showing firsthand the impacts that marine debris can have on wildlife. 

 

Following the cleanup, Be Luminous and Seattle Cider provided two amazing ways for volunteers to relax. With Yoga and Cider, volunteers were able to spend the day soaking up the great work accomplished. We couldn't have done it without all our friends, but we owe a special thanks to Washington CoastSavers, Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, and PacWesty. Check out the great work these organizations do in the area and how you can get involved year round.
