Emerald city for a reason

Seattle is the cleanest big city I have ever visited.
Sure, some trash here and there but nothing on the scale seen in Charlotte, New York, Atlanta, Dallas, et al. Recycle bins everywhere, signage sand other reminders.
It is a pervasive mindset; significant use of hybrid vehicles, bikes and public transit. There is a lesson here. It all depends if others are willing to pay attention.

About Dave Bradley (264 Articles)
I'm the one behind two totally unrelated blogs; the first on 17 years of writing weekly letters to my kids (plus other recipients), the other on my localized environmental responsibility (pickupyourpath.com). I'm a writer by trade and both endeavors are accepted practice for me. As for the letters, my adult children Ellen and Reid may have seen these single pagers as corny at one point, but it's accepted practice for them, too, to find something in their mailbox other than bills and junk mail. Email and texting don't do a lot for me for a lot of different reasons. Snail mail has its place in the communicative world and so as long as they keep selling stamps, I'm buying. As for pickupyourpath.com and the environment, I advocate what citizens can do themselves to take a direct hand in their neighborhood environment. But Pick Up Your Path is also a general environmental blog. It may be largely about litter and trash, but both of those are just one element of the total environmental picture.
