May 15th: Sip craft cocktails and raise funds for a thriving Seattle!
Bringing a new twist to our annual fundraiser, Sustainable Seattle has teamed up with The Seattle Spirits Society to find the most amazing craft cocktails Seattle has to offer. It'll be a night of exploration- to meet Seattle-based micro distilleries, hear of their sustainable practices, enjoy spirits tastings, specially selected craft cocktails, locally sourced food, sweets and so much more (including art to be created live on-site, dinner at Pan Pacific Seattle, and an outdoor adventure- all to be raffled off during the evening)! Guests are invited to sip and roam hubs around the venue to learn about Sustainable Seattle's work and find out what we're up to this coming year. Register
April 26: Vist our stop on the NW Green Home Tour!
The annual NW Green Home Tour is back! This year, we will host a sustainability stop to highlight our work at Highland Park Improvement Club (HPIC). Join Sustainable Seattle, Rainwise, and Highland Park members to tour this illustrative demonstration of innovative green infrastructure, with a cistern (a super-sized rain barrels), multiple rain gardens and a brand new permeable paver community courtyard. These features were envisioned and designed by the community and installed with the help of neighbor power - including a work day at the first ever King County DePave Day in partnership with Stewardship Partners! Visitors can interact with the new features, design their own rain garden, talk to RainWise contractors, and more. Tours highlighting how the features are spreading into the neighborhood will also be available. Visit to enjoy food, drinks, fun learning activities for kids and adults, and the chance to talk to the community, non-profits and contractors that brought this project from vision to reality. Learn more about the project here.

On April 21, we launched a pilot project with the Port of Seattle called "Moving Green Infrastructure Forward"!
The Port of Seattle kicks off a pilot project on April 21 to reduce the amount of polluted runoff reaching Puget Sound. The Port is hosting a two-year study site for two Splash Boxxes, unique metal boxes which will bloom into rain gardens and help reduce pollutants. This project is in partnership with King Conservation District, Sustainable Seattle, Gealogica LLC, and Splash Boxx LLC. Learn more about the "Rolling Gardens at Port of Seattle" from King 5 News.
