Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii
About Our Booth
The Sustainable Coastlines Hawai’i (SCH) team will be hosting an interactive booth to share how plastic pollution in Hawai'i is directly connected to other parts of the world, including California. Through education and a proactive, solutions-based approach SCH will provide attendees with knowledge and actions for a future free of plastic pollution. During the contest, SCH will also be turning waste into a resource through their waste diversion bins – receptacles set up to divert recyclables, compostables, and food scraps away from the landfill. Through both of these initiatives, they hope US Open attendees will walk away feeling empowered to take action, and with the tools to do so.
