This summer I’m skipping the straw! As many as 170 million straws are used every day in the US. Join me to waste less – take the pledge at http://cityofkirklandblogs.com/environmentalservices/green-summer-pledge/ #skipthestraw

Bring Your Own Mug

This summer, I’m cutting my waste by bringing my own mug when I get a drink to go! Reuse is even better than recycling. Join me to waste less – take the pledge at http://cityofkirklandblogs.com/environmentalservices/green-summer-pledge/ #reusefirst

Use Natural Yard Care

This summer, I’m protecting Puget Sound by using natural yard care methods in my garden! That means I won’t use harmful pesticides. Join me to help our local wildlife – take the pledge at http://cityofkirklandblogs.com/environmentalservices/green-summer-pledge/ #pugetsoundstartshere

Use a Pro Car Wash

This summer, I’m taking my car to a professional car wash instead of washing at home. Even “biodegradable” soap hurts wildlife when it gets into our streams or Lake Washington!
