HOLD THE FOAM!
Single-use, non-recyclable packaging like polystyrene food
containers (EPS or Sytrofoam) are
unsustainable for an island community.
So Hawaii Wildlife Fund
has joined other groups in endorsing the 131 food vendors and restaurants that have
elected to use foam alternatives for their to-go containers.
HWF also urges support for
the proposed Styrofoam Ban legislation
Bill 140, which was introduced by
Kohala Councilwoman Margaret Willie on Hawaii Island Oct 18.
Earlier in 2016, our team signed and supported the
Change.org Petition banning
single-use EPS containers in Hawaii County, which garnered 5,124
STYROFOAM BAN PRESS RELEASE
This year, Hawaii Wildlife Fund celebrates 20 years of conservation, research
and education in Hawaii nei!
We are honored by the abundant
support Hawaii Wildlife Fund received through our 20th anniversary celebration
held on Oct 15 on Hawaii Island.
Thanks to the sponsors who donated gifts and discounts, to those
who made donations and volunteered their time to help, and to
community members who attended our ho'olaule'a.
A special shout out goes to three of our sponsors who helped with
Ke Ola Magazine,
Hilo Burger Joint.
We are grateful for the extensive network that has formed around
HWF over the past two decades and are jazzed as we launch into the next 20 years.
Me ka mahalo,
Hannah Bernard, Executive Director
