"The Barn" at SALT @ our Kaka‘ako
Did you know that in Hawai’i we create double the amount of trash per person than anywhere on the mainland?! With the momentum of Hōkūleʻa’s message to Mālama Honua to care for our island earth and with statewide goals to reduce our waste footprint by 70% by 2030 we are poised to change this!
Interested in being a part of the change? Come join Zero Waste O’ahu in a fun-filled and engaging afternoon at the Moana Lani Festival for Oʻahu’s first ever Zero Waste Summit! The Summit will focus on understanding of Zero Waste philosophy and how it is possible for Hawai’i. We’ll also carve out time to take tangible steps towards shaping Zero Waste Policy for our County!
12:30-3:00pm: Speakers and Workshops!
Learn about Zero Waste through inspiring speakers and hands-on workshops that will offer you skills to reduce your waste in your business, home or workplace.
3:30-5:50pm: Diving Deep into Zero Waste for Honolulu
Honolulu is in the process of updating the County’s 10-year waste management plan. Let’s help our leaders plan for a more sustainable tomorrow by creating a vision for a Zero Waste O’ahu during this facilitated input session!
