Mariners' Kitchen Catcher Day


Fans attending Saturday’s baseball game at Safeco Field will get a chance to hit a home run for the environment, thanks to a partnership between Seattle Public Utilities (SPU), BASF, EcoSafe and the Seattle Mariners.

To celebrate Earth Day, the first 10,000 attendees of the April 21st game between the Seattle Mariners and the Chicago White Sox will receive a “kitchen catcher” – featuring a container and compostable bags to collect and carry their household food scraps to their curbside food and yard waste carts. The kitchen catchers will also feature tips on how to compost at home as well as coupons for compostable bags and bags of garden compost.
