Plastic Free Hawaiʻi

June 03, 2019

Congratulations to the Hawaiʻi Tourism & Lodging Association for making their annual Oʻahu Charity Walka plastic free event! 5 Plastic Free Hawaiʻi Water Refill Stations helped to offset 17,500 single-use water bottles! Mahalo to the 7,000 participants who #BYOBottle to the event and Alaska Airlines for donating reusable water pouches. Mahalo for the opportunity to share our Plastic Free Hawaiʻi Hotel Program at the HTLA Hawai‘i Hotel & Restaurant Show at the Hawaiʻi Convention Center.

We kicked off World Oceans Day celebrations at the North Shore Ocean Fest this weekend! The annual event held at Turtle Bay Resort started with music by Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation co-founder Jack Johnson and was filled with fun, educational booths, great entertainment, and ono food!  World Oceans Day is on June 8 and the month is filled with lots of fun and educational events. Look for Plastic Free Hawaiʻi at these upcoming events:
