Keeping awesome beaches like Alki free of cigarette waste was the presiding theme this year with the Seattle Chapter. The Chapter [http://westseattleblog.com/2014/08/hold-on-to-your-butt-surfrider-foundation-campaign-saturday/ installed two cigarette canisters at Alki] with the hopes of finding fewer cigarette butts on the beach, the most frequently collected item during beach cleanups. Additionally, the chapter took part in several SUP events, hosted films, and saw its ranks grow with a expanded number of passionate supporters.
The Seattle chapter is steadily getting more cigarette butts off the ground and into ash cans in West Seattle through their HOTYB program. Inspired by an article he read about Surfrider ash cans going up at Alki Beach, Jon from The Grove Inn, West Seattle, sponsored two new ash cans around the property to eliminate cigarette butts from the streets and eventually our waters.
