A note to our residents from our friends at Hawaii Farmers Union United:

We are now into the part of the 2017 legislative session where your participation as a citizen of the great state of Hawaii is requested and appreciated. This message is requesting you take a few minutes of your time to testify online in support of 5 bills.  The deadline is Monday morning by noon, but the sooner the better please.

In less than nine months, the Surfrider Foundation and its coalition of partners have certified more than 100 Ocean Friendly Restaurants in Hawaii. This statewide program, which kicked off on Earth Day 2016, recognizes restaurants leading the way in environmental protection by operating without foam and plastic.
