Simplify the Holidays

December 20, 2018

ʻĀINA Schools Hauʻula and Sunset Beach Elementary hosted Simplify the Holidays workshops with Master Food Preserver Terri Langley of Bliss Healthy Foods where families learned how to make their own Herbal Seasoned Salt. Together with the Education Incubator, we hosted another Simplify the Holidays event for the general public. Families also got to enjoy a variety of Simplify the Holidays activities and ideas
 to inspire a greener holiday season that’s more about meaning than “stuff.” A highlight at SBES was the marine debris printing and stamp art activity led by Ethan Estess, artist/scientist, and creator of the Plastic Free Wave art installation that was recently displayed at ʻEhukai Beach Park.

Want your holidays wrapped in more meaning — and less stuff? This year, you don’t have to rack up credit card debt or get swept up in the season’s commercialism. Instead, consider creating holidays that encourage more sharing, laughter, creativity, and personal renewal. With our Simplify the Holidays campaign, inspired by the Center for a New American Dream, we are here to help you get started. We hope our tips and resources will help you reduce stress and increase personal fulfillment during this holiday season.
