Earth Day Downtown Oly Cigarette Butt Cleanup

April 22, 2024 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Olympia City Hall steps
601 4th Ave E.

Join Olympia Surfrider for their monthly downtown Olympia cigarette butt focused cleanup. Cigarette butts are the top item found on beach cleanups around the world. Cigarette filters are made of plastic so these butts are very toxic in the environment for water and animals who mistake them for food. All the storm drains in downtown Oly lead to the bay, so the OlySurfrider chapter focuses on getting as many butts from entering Puget Sound as they can. The more volunteers, the more butts stopped from polluting! The chapter provides buckets, pickers, counters and gloves. However, bringing your own bucket and reusable gloves is very much appreciated! Please register for the event and sign the waiver. Bring your frineds and family too – this short one hour cleanup is strangely fun! We meet on the steps of City Hall to check in and then volunteers pick up butts for an hour and return to the steps at 6:30pm for a count and weight and fun raffle prizes.
