The seaweed is gone from The Edition Hotel, but the rest of the beach, where the residents live, it’s still very foul.
Today I spent some time on the Collins Avenue corridor and went to survey the seaweed (click here to see my video). It’s still there — it was only removed from one hotel, and the rest of the beach remains a stinky, sticky, foul mess of seaweed mixed with trash.
We need action and we need it now!
People made fun of a presidential primary nominee who said that government should use love to conquer all, but I think she’s onto something.
I love our city, I love our beaches, I adore our residents, and the more I get to know you, the harder I fall for you.
Let’s fix this seaweed problem, and let’s do it as soon as possible.
As your commissioner, I won’t back down. I will fight always fight for you. Like Churchill said, “We will fight from the beaches!”
P.S. Please join us July 24th at the SAND Bar+Kitchen in North Beach. (see below)
As I recall from a couple years ago, the City recognized seaweed as part of the natural, living environment & a habitat for many creatures, and decided to stop raking it up it with fossil-fueled plows. The trash, styrofoam, plastic bags and straws are what is really harmful!
