It’s Earth Month, the perfect time for us to do our part to mālama ʻāina, or care for the land. Our Kaka‘ako, Waterfront Plaza, and Surfrider Foundation invite you to join us at the Mālama ‘Āina Community Cleanup on Saturday, April 2, for a morning of fresh air, sunshine, and doing good in the neighborhood with your ‘ohana and friends. Furry family members are welcome too!

Check-in will start at 9:00 a.m. at The Barn at SALT at Our Kaka‘ako at 327 Keawe Street, where you can pick up a map, reusable gloves, and a biodegradable trash bag. A coffee, hot chocolate, and snack station will be set up for everyone to enjoy throughout the cleanup, courtesy of our friends at Starbucks at SALT at Our Kaka‘ako. After dropping off your collected trash and cleanup supplies at the designated drop-off location staffed by Surfrider Foundation and 4ocean, head back to The Barn to grab a beverage and something to eat.

For your comfort, bring water in your own reusable bottle, reef-safe sunscreen, a hat, and shades or protective eyewear.
Water stations will be set up in The Barn.
