For the second year, Tukwila recyclers have a chance to help a local non-profit help local children.

The Tukwila ‘Recycle Often Recycle Right’ campaign aims to collect 500 recycling pledges from community members before June 30.

Every ‘Recycle Often Recycle Right’ promise will help the Tukwila Children’s Foundation earn a $5,000 grant from Waste Management. The Foundation helps meet the basic needs of children in the Tukwila community. The recycling promise supports Tukwila’s recycling goals and helps build community connections in Tukwila.

There are three basic rules for the Recycle Often Recycle Right campaign:

  1. Recycle all empty bottles, cans and paper
  2. Keep food and liquids out of the recycling
  3. Keep loose plastic bags out of the recycling

Why focus on recycling basics?
New plastic-packaging technologies and evolving environmental standards make it difficult to know what can be recycled. As a result, it has become more important than ever to make recycling guidelines and systems as easy and efficient as possible.

To pledge now and help the Tukwila Children’s Foundation, go to

http://recycleoftenrecycleright.com/tukwila/

Another way to help is to encourage others via social media, using the campaign hashtag #RORR.

Story & Photos courtesy resident Elston Hill:

The Museum of Flight previewed its new, 3-acre Aviation Pavilion on Thursday (June 23) for the media.

The 9-story high, roofed outdoor gallery doubles the Museum’s exhibit space with the biggest expansion in its 51-year history, establishing a new Seattle landmark and one of the world’s grandest displays of historic aircraft.

The Museum of Flight’s Aviation Pavilion is a covered, outside gallery with 15 rare and unique commercial and military airplanes. The Museum’s Boeing 747 prototype, Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Concorde will be open to the public daily. The building covers more area than two football fields, and is 90 ft. high. The original Boeing 727 and the first presidential jet plane (Air Force One) will move across the street to the new facility in October, but are also available to view next to the museum.

For us, the most impressive airplane was the original Boeing 747 test aircraft. Even though I have flown on 747s, walking up to this 747 was just incredible – it is HUGE when seen up close from the ground.

The new facility opens to the public this Saturday, June 25 (more info here).

The Seattle Southside Regional Tourism Authority (RTA) and the Southwest King County Chamber of Commerce announced a partnership on Tuesday (April 26) with the intent “to better promote the regional destination, bolster tourism and drive economic vitality” of the region.

What was known as the Southwest King County Chamber of Commerce will become the Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce.

The partnership is made effective through a memorandum of understanding, in which both organizations will leverage the Seattle Southside name.

“There is an increasing understanding of the value of a singular place brand,” said Katherine Kertzman, president and CEO of the Seattle Southside RTA. “The more we can all rally around the Seattle Southside region, the more we will all benefit.”

Both organizations will remain independent of the other, while realizing the benefits of co-branding the Seattle Southside area. This will create a uniform voice in the destination brand of Seattle Southside, while also increasing efficiencies through joint marketing efforts and maximizing available funds, including shared collateral materials.

“There is strength in numbers and we’re all working toward the same goals,” said Dena Guttridge, CEO of the Chamber. “Increasing our collaboration is a big win for the entire community. Our Chamber mission remains the same but this allows us to reduce costs for our members while greatly increasing our exposure with amplified marketing efforts.”

About Seattle Southside Regional Tourism Authority

The organization is responsible for competitively marketing the area as an ideal travel destination for leisure and business travelers who wish to explore Western Washington and an idyllic place for meeting and event planners to hold their events. The Seattle Southside RTA is funded by a self-assessed hotel fund and supported by a lodging tax from the cities of SeaTac, Tukwila and Des Moines.
