Help Clean Seattle's Dirty Beach!!

Posted by on Wed, Feb 27, 2013 at 2:23 PM

Slog tipper Guy has asked us to "PLEASE spread the word" about the cleanup of Seattle's Constellation Park this Saturday, March 2, at noon. Volunteers will bag and remove styrofoam, plastic, and the rest of the unholy detritus sullying this West Seattle beach. A bunch of dumb seagulls, who will pretty much eat anything, will love you for it.

Coffee will be provided by Pioneer Coffee, and local shops like The Alki Mail and Dispatch and Meander's Kitchen have posted incentives on the group's Facebook page: Dirtbags with Trash Bags. The event is sponsored by the Alki Beach Creeps Bicycle Club.

Those cycling will leave El Chupacabra (the one on Alki) at 11:30 a.m. Otherwise, meet at Constellation Park at noon.

Check out all of the other incredible opportunities for community engagement (and drinking!) on our News Calendar.

They've been doing all these clean ups here on Kent East Hill for the new "Revitalization Project"...and while, I applaud the effort, I keep thinking..don't we pay people to keep these areas -- parks, streets -- clean? I also wonder where it comes from, since, ever since, oh, 1987, I have never seen a person willfully toss a paper wrapper on the ground.

I do notice that a lot of times, there are dumpsters that are above the fill line, and which, when loaded or transported by truck, leave a trail of loose debris like bottles, boxes, ...

Am I supposed to clean that up?

1 seagull + 1 plastic bag = 1 less seagull and 1 less plastic bag.

Sounds like a perfect win win situation.

Nature truly is a beautiful and miraculous machine!

Deepest thanks and bravo to this wonderful effort to keep the supreme natural beauty of this area in order, but know what I really want to do? I want to catch the people who drop styrofoam, plastic, and the rest of the unholy detritus there, and pop the holy shit out of them.
