Sustainability Spotlight: Hiking Hawaii Cafe

Many businesses throughout Hawaii are making the switch of using recyclable takeout boxes instead of polystyrene food service containers, which for years have have littered our oceans, parks and outdoor spaces, while creating hazardous impacts to our environment and ecosystem. This is why community members, local organizations and businesses are stepping up to support alternative options and adopt practices that are sustainable for our earth. I recently sat down with Crystal Evans of Hiking Hawaii​ Café to learn more about how her business is committed to practicing sustainability. Her café offers a variety of delicious & healthy sandwiches, pizzas, salads and smoothies, also offering gluten-free options. Join us as we learn more about how Hiking Hawaii Cafe​ is committed to being environmentally conscious and sustainable by using reusable dishware and compostable takeout containers.

Kahumana Organic Farm & Cafe

How do we build more sustainable communities through Oahu? Here is one organization that is leading by example! Kahumana Organic Farm & Cafe (Waianae) is a diverse community & farm with a goal to use recyclable goods, biodynamics, composting, natural farming and permaculture to promote sustainable living. The farm is also a place of learning and vocational training for those transitioning from homelessness, people with disabilities, and youth, who eventually become farmers and help manage the daily operations of the café.

Re-Use Hawaii

Did you know that more than 1/3 of Oʻahu’s waste comes from unnecessary construction and demolition debris? Join me as I visit Re-use Hawaii (Kakaako) and sit down with their Executive Director Quinn Flint to learn more about how this organization is committed to conserving energy, reducing waste, creating jobs, and transforming waste into a resource!

Mouna Farm Arts & Cultural Village

There is a special place in Waiʻanae that many don’t know about but I highly encourage you to visit. World-renowned copper artist Sooriya Kumar is the owner of Mouna Farm Arts & Cultural Village, a 4 1/2 acre organic farm which raises fruits and vegetables to feed the needy, and serves as a place for refuge for people of all walks of life. For more than 30 years, Sooriya has committed to giving back to the Waiʻanae community.
