Re SFGate Bay Pollution:
“Efforts are also under way to slash the most visible types of contamination: cigarette butts, Styrofoam packaging and plastic bags.”
One thing I’d love to see around the city, but especially North Beach, is a concerted effort to control the cigarette butts. Walking around NB on a Saturday or Sunday morning, all you see is a sea of white specs all over the ground and filling the gutters. I hope to work with the North Beach Chamber in the coming months to have bars put out ashtrays. Also, I have just started blatantly calling people out for tossing their butts (they are littering). The streets are our collective living room and we should all take care of it.
“Given the ton of bikes, it is such a travesty that between 8th St. and the Embarcadero it is a total traffic free-for-all with essentially no bike infrastructure at all (green sharrows notwithstanding).”
