More About Hawaii

Hawaii has a strong tradition of environmental preservation. In their daily lives, the ancient Hawaiians not only recognized but also practiced sustainability. They had no choice! The ancient Hawaiians did not have the luxury of “importing” products from outside while they inhabited the islands.

They had the land beneath their feet and the ocean to rely on for sustenance, and even those resources had to last not only for their lifetimes but also for their future generations. As a result, these early inhabitants allied with the land and sea and built a complex social system that managed resources and prohibited using particular resources at certain periods of the year to allow those elements to regenerate themselves.
