Keyes told Art Threat that seeing a paper mill pollute the Puget Sound was a formative experience:

"I remember walking along the Ruston Way beach in Tacoma, Washington and seeing along the shore, thick frothy foam with many dead fish. Our family joined a group of neighbors who were also concerned about the safety of the water and organized to enforce more regulations on the industrial plants in the area. Over time they achieved success and the Tacoma waterway is now a public attraction."
