Zero Waste Guide
Zero Waste Programs
Sustainable Coastline Hawaii
Hosting a fundraiser, wedding, or school event can create tons of waste (pun intended) but it doesn't have to. Sustainable Coastlines Hawai'i helps clients plan low-waste planning events through waste diversion, pre-event consulting, training and education. All proceeds from Sustain Events proceeds go back into the Sustainable Coastlines Hawai'i program.
Zero Waste Grocery Stores
Zero Waste Restaurants
Kalapawai Market.com is inspired by home-cooked meals and the local farmers that make them possible. The café utilizes local-when-possible ingredients from Waimānalo farms and also offers rotating dishes using surplus produce from local farmers.
