Beach Cleanup with Seed.World

story-thumbnail
It was a beautiful day at Waimanalo Beach Park until we looked more closely at the sand and saw countless tiny pieces of plastic. Using screens and a special Buoyancy Separation Device from our partner for this project, Seed.World, we sifted and sifted until we separated out a plethora of plastic in every shape, size and color you could imagine.

We saw firsthand the impact micro-plastic pollution has on our island and why we need to take action. Helping with this cleanup project educated us on how much harm plastics are causing all of our beaches and oceans, and we now hope to raise awareness about this problem in other concerned individuals.

Palolo Elementary School Cleanup

With the Palolo Elementary School keiki coming back to campus this month, we worked hard to beautify their playground and basketball area. We spent the day weed whacking, weed pulling, tree cutting, sweeping and more, so now they have much more room to play and run around!

Christmas Shoebox Wrapping

On Saturday, November 9th, RCEH kicked off the holiday season with our annual Christmas Shoebox Project Part I: Shoebox Wrapping.
 
Members, family and friends gathered at our club house, the home of member Janice Kim, and wrapped about 170 empty shoeboxes, remaining boxes were wrapped on Saturday, November 16.  While we worked, John Strandberg was busy in the kitchen roasting us a turkey.  And like any potluck in Hawaii, we had more than an abundance of food....and fun!  
 
Stay tuned for Part II: Shoebox Stuffing, where we stuff each shoebox with gifts for the nearly 300 students at Palolo Elementary.
