Earth Week events in and around Ballard

Next Monday is Earth Day (April 22), which means there will be several events this weekend and next week to celebrate.

Here’s a rundown of things happening around Ballard:

Friday, April 19:

Saturday, April 20:

  • Earth Day Celebration at Shilshole Marina. 9am – 1pm, free. Learn about supporting marine life, sustainable living, pollution prevention, clean up, and waste management.
  • Free E-Cycling Event with Living Green Technology. 12pm – 4pm at Lucky Envelope Brewing. Safely dispose of electronics, software, batteries, ink and toner (no large appliances or light bulbs).
  • Earth Day Plogging. 9am – noon at Fjällräven, Downtown. This one’s not in Ballard, but it may as well be: “Plogging” is the “mash up of jogging and the Swedish ‘plocka upp’ or pick up.” Essentially: picking up trash while spending time outside. They’ll meet at the store at 9am and will head out around downtown from there, with a “special surprise” back at the store after the heavy plogging.

Friday, April 26

  • Protect Our Winters! Earth Week Bash. 5pm – 11pm at Peddler Brewing. A collaboration between Wonderland Gear Exchange and Peddler, the bash will include a raffle fundraiser for Protect our Winters with prizes including gear from Wonderland, lift tickets to Snoqualmie and Crystal, art from local photographers, gear from evo, and POW swag. $1 of every beer will be donated to POW.

Saturday, April 27:

Sunday, April 28:

  • Ballard Bridge Sidewalk Clean-up. hosted by Peddler Brewing. Meet at Peddler at 11:30am, with clean-up starting at 12pm. At 2pm, they’ll head back to Peddler to rehydrate with beer.

Good of you to step up and create an event to clean up! That’s what we need, more people willing to step up and gather others to do what needs to be done rather than just complaining about it. Nice!

Stop enabling litterers, rapists, junkies, and other assorted criminals, Freja.
We’ll stop complaining when you stop making your neighbors SUBSIDIZE the filth and crime.

See, not only do you have to PAY for the junkies you must CLEAN UP after the libs’ favorite pets.
Get more woke!

What do you expect from people who make everyone else put up with their annoying dog babies?

Pretty much. The Social Justice Cult makes their money off the idiots paying/voting for this hobo invasion, then get all their idiots to go out and clean up after them. It works because they all hate Trump or something. Never mind the fact that all the plastic trash that ends up in the ocean is making them tech people rich from selling that garbage online. And then there is the massive fleet of giant freighters that spew more pollution than all the cars in the world.

Only bigots, racists, and Russian Nazis notice these things, btw. Get more woke!

Love this, I’ll continue my lifestyle transition to less single use items and making clean up contributions to the areas around me.

Let’s all share needles.
In case I’m not around when you want to use it, I will leave it just inside the porta-potty in Ballard Commons.
We can save the earth if we all work together!

The Ballard bridge could sure use some safety improvements. This sidewalk is dangerous. One morning I was driving on the bridge and a guy was riding a bike, a pedestrian coming the other way climbed on top of the curb and was balancing themselves with their briefcase to let the biker go by. I was driving by as he was doing this, I’m glad he didn’t lose his balance.

Fun Fact:
Seattle is so rich and so up its own ass that it has successfully created – through carefully planned blunders over 2 decades – its very own permanent criminal underclass. This hobo plantation also happens to leave huge trash piles everywhere, so of course all you Jane/John Q Publics are required by the social justice schoolmarms to clean up after all the drifters and junkies. Think of it as summer camp for sheltered trust fund kids who earn their social justice merit badges by scolding the rest of us for noticing the pattern. Get woke, Peasants!

You misspelled “Thank you all for your service to the community!”

You misspelled “I hate the working taxpayers and use passive aggressive snark as a form of elitism to establish social dominance, disguised by my so-called progressive political signalling”.

Affluent white lady snark is peak privilege, Comrade. Get more woke!

I am a working tax payer and I support communities coming together to improve the neighborhood.

I am sorry that you are feeling so threatened, frightened, and sad. I hope you can find peace within yourself one day.

Parasites are parasites. They can kill you, but nobody fears fleas until the plague hits.

Yes, and you are a parasite in which we all hope goes away.

I don’t technically have a zodiac sign, but I’m probably Cancer.
