In these uncertain times, it’s up to all of us to stay vigilant. COVID-19 is bringing unwelcome threats to Maui, and we’re being asked to report violations. How much do you really know about what your friends and neighbors are up to? Or, maybe they aren’t flouting the rules, but they are just nauseatingly perfect when it comes to the environment? Like always recycling, driving a hybrid car, even VOTING. How annoying. They deserve to be called out. Well, here at West Maui Kumuwai we have the perfect opportunity for you...
Of course we’re being ridiculous, we love our local environmental heroes. If you’ve been following along since April, you saw that we launched an Earth Month activity to allow people to share their ocean-friendliness. As part of that, we purchased and gave away gift cards for essential Maui businesses that were able to stay open during the earliest days of the coronavirus pandemic. We mailed them out to anyone who sent in a photo of themselves being ocean-friendly in various ways, and between April and August, we received dozens of amazing pictures and gave away hundreds of dollars in gift cards to support local Maui businesses. Thank you to everyone who participated! GOOD NEWS, we still have a lot of gift cards on hand, so we’re rebooting the concept. NOW, in an attempt to keep some positive vibes rolling during a time when we’re surrounded by anything but, we’d like to ask Maui residents to send in photos of their friends, family, and neighbors doing any of the ocean-friendly activities we have been promoting. That’s right, catch them in the act, share a photo and tell us about their ocean-friendly behavior, and we’ll send you a gift card, while they last. Each week we’ll highlight a new behavior and provide tips and resources on our website and social media feeds. To kick this off, this week we’re featuring ocean-friendly car washing. Check out our first post in the series and be on the lookout!
