About the event
Back to the windward side of Kauaʻi for this motnhs's Hoʻomalu Ke Kai & Kauaʻi Ocean Awareness 'Last Saturday of the Month Cleanup'. This side of the island always could use some mālama. It experiences the most marine debris of any side of Kauaʻi because of its open facing direction to prevailing tradwind winds and ocean currents that move marine debris from the great pacific plastic gryres to beautiful remote pacific islands throughout Oceania. These cleanups may never actually, within themselves, "solve" the marine debris issues; nevertheless they do help to create more tangibility and personal connections to some of the waste management issues our world is facing , which hopefully create sort of small changes in personal interactions with the World around us. Remember, if you can't join us on an organized cleanup, you can always still cleanup when you DO have the time. Even just 5 minutes goes a long way as our friends at the 5 minute foundation would say :)
Look forward to seeing you all Saturday, May 27th for this month's community coastline cleanup! Meet at ʻAliomanu / Papaʻa Bay Beach Parking at 10am. All cleanup materials, refreshments, and snacks provided; but we do recommend bringing water in a reusable container and wearing reef safe sunscreen.
