"Make it a Straight Flush"

Location: Washington


Seattle Public Utilities chose Cascadia to help them decrease the amount of trash flushed down the toilet. The resulting Make It a Straight Flush outreach campaign was designed to reach businesses and residents in the University Village and Seward Park neighborhoods, where sewer facilities have been consistently plagued by trash-related bockages.

Our team began by developing an outreach plan with tailored messaging and communication strategies for the chosen pump station areas.We also developed a campaign theme and a toolkit for outreach staff to use with target businesses and residents. With outreach tools in hand, a team of Cascadians conducted onsite visits to educate nearly 100 businesses in both neighborhoods; they will continue to visit businesses and residents through 2015 and adjust engagement strategies and materials for new audiences as needed. 

Cascadia brought some very innovative, original thinking to the project and to the issue that we were dealing with. They bring their own unique experiences and skills and a willingness to apply them to your needs and your issues.
