Woo Hooo Al Ahmadi

Great sign, Al Ahmadi!


I would love to see a Keep Kuwait Clean sign, maybe a series of them. The one I see features one of the beautiful, pristine beaches, and then the green green of the gulf. That contrast always takes my breath away, and it breaks my heart to see them filthy with fast-food wrappers, and detritus washed up from the boats.

Nicole B / Rainmountain, who has a photography and blog site has a one woman campaign to keep her segment of the beach clean in Mahboula. God bless you, Nicole!I think many of the schools also have beach clean-up days, and some clubs, too.

What would your sign feature? I’m not very artistic – those of you who are, would you do a sign, link to this blog entry so we can come visit?

  1. back in the day ahmadi used to be such a nice place, and one of the greenest and cleanest in kuwait. its such a shame what’s happened to it.

    i’m resisting the urge to make fun of the term “our domestic waste” as its definately not talking about ahmadi’s inhabitants of course 😛

  2. I am guessing they recycle water and human waste by-products, but it sure makes for beautiful lawns and gardens, eh, Skunk? I love visiting there, it’s like a little US suburb!

  4. There are a lot of ways to recycle, including cleaning out your closets and bookcases, etc. and donating your things to the poor, the used bookshop, expats setting up house for a couple years (that’s NOT a hint!) etc.

    Bottles of urine??? Too much information! Too much information! Aaaaacckkk!
