Don’t forget collapsible shopping bags
Plastic bags are being phased out in the Seattle area. Consider traveling with a lightweight collapsible tote — most can fold down smaller than the size of a fist.
Catch a Swift Bus
Swift is a different kind of bus service that is designed to get where you need to go, and fast. With Swift Green and Blue Lines, traveling within the Coastal Communities and Urban Basecamp is a breeze. The Green Line connects the Boeing Future of Flight to the north, Paine Field, and the shopping center at the Mill Creek Town Center, while the Blue Line connects Everett, Lynnwood and the arts community of Edmonds.
Tone down energy use
Remember to turn off lights and electronic devices when you leave your hotel. You may not be directly paying for the light bill, but conservation counts.
Choose souvenirs intentionally
Some souvenirs may represent Seattle NorthCountry but were made in factories overseas and shipped from other parts of the world. Find that special something to remember your visit here by perusing a farmer’s market or supporting a small local business.
Enjoy the Pacific Northwest responsibly while looking forward. Seattle NorthCountry is truly a gift we can give back to.
