Food

Start or Tend a Garden

I will tend to a garden each day, or work on starting one to keep my food local, minimize my climate carbon footprint and therefore reduce my impact to the Puget Sound and/or Pacific Ocean.

COMPLETED 18
DAILY ACTIONS

Compost Food Waste

I will avoid sending up to .69 lbs (.31 kg) of food waste to landfills per day by composting my food, which reduces my climate footprint ultimately helping salmon and orcas.

Nature

Leave No Trace

I will practice the seven principles of Leave No Trace when doing nature activities alone or with family and friends to minimize my downstream impact in my watershed.

COMPLETED 18
DAILY ACTIONS

Nature

Do Nature Activities

I will engage in nature-based activities alone, or with my friends or family, for 10 minute(s) each day to connect with the shared ecosystem in which I live and rely on. (This can be anything from going on a walk or hike, to noticing the leaves changing color, to reading a book with nature themes.)

Learn how and take steps to certify my yard or common outdoor area as a backyard wildlife habitat to improve our Puget Sound or other regional ecosystem.

Completed
One-Time Action

Transportation

Use a Carwash

When I wash my car I will always take it to a commercial car wash facility to avoid driveway drainage of toxic chemicals entering the storm drain and local waterways, poisoning fish and Orcas in Puget Sound and/or the Pacific Ocean.

COMPLETED 19
DAILY ACTIONS

Transportation

Go by Bike

I will commute by bike 2 mile(s) per day and avoid sending up to 48.09 lbs of CO2 into Earth's atmosphere AND avoid sending exhaust particles and tire pollution into stormwater that impacts Orca and salmon health.

COMPLETED 19
DAILY ACTIONS

Water

Mulch the Base of Trees and Plants

I will prevent harmful storm-water runoff to the Puget Sound and/or Pacific Ocean and increase absorbency by mulching the base of plants and trees at my home or work.

Completed
One-Time Action

Water

Stormwater Drain Marking

The single largest source of pollution that contaminates Puget Sound is polluted storm water runoff. By marking storm drains, we can educate our community by informing them that nothing but rain should go down the drain!

Completed
One-Time Action

Waste

Skip the Straw

Plastic bags and small plastic pieces like straws are most likely to get swept into our Puget Sound and/or Pacific Ocean waterways. I will keep 6 plastic straw(s) out of the landfill per day by refusing straws or using my own glass/metal straw.

COMPLETED 19

Waste

Use a Reusable Water Bottle

I will keep 10 disposable plastic bottle(s) from entering the waste stream, and downstream in Puget Sound and/or the Pacific Ocean, by using a reusable water bottle.

COMPLETED 19
DAILY ACTIONS

Education

Educate my family or friends

Spend 15 minutes educating my family/friends about Southern Resident Orca Whales and their endangered food supply.

Completed
One-Time Action

Water

Collect Rain Water

I will use rain barrels to collect water for outdoor watering needs because in summer a drop for me may be one less for salmon, which then warms streams or can impair salmon streamflows.

Completed
One-Time Action

Nature

Plant Trees

I will plant 4 tree(s) in my community, public parks, or backyard to combat climate change and reduce stormwater impacts to Puget Sound and/or Pacific Ocean.

  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use a Reusable Water Bottle
    While water bottles are needed for health and safety in certain places, we can do more to reduce the unnecessary use of them. What are the barriers to you using reusable bottles and tap water instead of bottled water? How could you make this a permanent habit?
