The Earth is Happy

by Kahi

What a day, that rain out there, yeah those are Earths tears of joy. The combined work of over 500 volunteers on April 19th resulted in 700 native plants given life into the land (aina), 260 buckets of coral weighing in at a total of 7,800 pounds added to fortify the fishponds walls, an uncountable amount of weeds removed to their demise, and 3,739 pounds of debris removed from the coastlines of which 3oo pounds was recycled. As a thank you to the volunteers for their hard and muddy work, SCH hosted a concert at Kualoa Ranch featuring The Late One (TLO) and Dread Ashanti. Volunteers were also educated by other non-profits and local vendors who provided interactive booths that kept the volunteers engaged. A potato sack race using reused horse feed bags had the kids stoked and a wheel barrow race luckily left all unscathed.

The Earth Day Mauka to Makai Day sponsored by Hurley, Kualoa Ranch, Hawaiian Electric, and Whole Foods went off without a hitch. Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii (SCH) organized the opportunity for over 500 dedicated Earth loving locals to clean and take care (malama) where they wanted. You had the option to clean beaches (over 5 to choose from), work in the mountains planting native species with Hui o Ko’olaupoko, take care of the lo’i (native planting technique and one of the original aquaponics) with Kako’o Oiwi, or work on restoring the states second largest fish pond with Paepae o He’eia.
Special thanks go out to all our vendors and beach cleanup partners like Hawaiian Electric, Kailua Sailboards and Kayaks, Ocean Devotion, Surfrider Foundation Oahu Chapter, and KUPU.
Join us for the next beach cleanup happening on June 21st in Kaka’ako at Point Panics. For more info check out www.sustainablecoastlineshawaii.org, Facebook, or Instagram @sustainablecoastlineshawaii.
