Volunteer Opportunity! Don’t Drip and Drive event
August 2, 2018 @ 5:30 am - 10:00 amFree
Every year, more than 7 million quarts of motor oil drip out of vehicles
onto streets and parking lots and makes its way to lakes, rivers,
streams and the Puget Sound. Most of this toxic pollution comes from
small drips from cars and trucks. And that’s just motor oil.
Puget Sound Starts Here’s “Don’t Drip and Drive” program was
designed to build awareness and educate people throughout the
Puget Sound region that it is important to check for vehicle leaks
regularly to keep their car on the road and protect local waters.
Studies show that 67 percent of drivers who find a leak will fix it within three months. This summer WSU Snohomish County Extension Sustainable Community Stewards, WSU Snohomish County Beach Watchers volunteers, among other community members, will be testing cars for leaks at two events in Everett. In order to make these events a success and to test the highest number of cars, we need all hands on deck. So, we welcome the help from all interested in participating!
Volunteers will be frequently bending down to place drip sheets, walking good distances, and
speaking with the public. Extension will provide orange safety vests, ice water, and light snacks for
