Since guests bring their own food to Shearwater Cove, most people hit the Safeway or Seward Marketplace for groceries before getting on our boat. Most people don't travel with re-usable grocery bags, so a lot of plastic bags end up making their way to the yurts.
This year, the Sustainable Seward organization is working to shift Seward away from plastic bag use in preparation for the city-wide ban on single use plastic bags which will take effect in October. Sustainable Seward members are hastily sewing t-shirt bags that will be available for shoppers to borrow and return in case they forget to bring their own bags. Keep an eye out for these re-usable options as you shop for your stay at Shearwater Cove!
