The Earth Day Every Day fair at "Shoreline Place" by Central Market Saturday was blessed with sunny skies and many exhibitors with information and giveaways. The event is sponsored by the City of Shoreline.

There was a choice of three giveaway packages
at the City of Shoreline booth

The City of Shoreline had a choice of three giveaway packages designed to reduce waste and prevent water pollution:
  • Sustainable Living Package: Liberty Bottleworks 24-oz recycled aluminum water bottle and a Simply Straws reusable glass straw kit,
  • Natural Yard Care Package: Walt’s Organic worm castings fertilizer in a 10-lb bag and a 2-oz jar of MicraCulture’s Plant Probiotics fertilizer,
  • Puget Hound Pet Care Package: LED Pet Collar light, an LED flashlight, and a bag dispenser tool with Bio-Buddy recycled-content pet waste bag refills.

Each one came in a reusable flexible plastic carrying bag with the logo "I used to be a water bottle." The pretty design on the sides was multi-colored water bottles.

City staff get a breather after the line goes down

The line was very long early in the morning, because supplies have run out in previous years. No one seemed to mind the wait. It started at 9am and the supplies lasted until 1pm.

You may not know the names of the culprits
but you may recognize them

King County had a booth full of photos of "noxious weeds" - plants they would like you root up and throw in the garbage.

NW SolarFest's Maryn Wynne was there, with a solar cooker - and tea kettle at the ready. The water got to 165 degrees, even after the clouds came in.
