As one of the most isolated archipelagos in the world, Hawai‘i must work hard to protect and preserve its fragile ecosystems and limited natural resources. However, as today’s consumer society continues to place emphasis on convenience, our Islands’ environment and communities are becoming more and more at-risk.

 

On Monday, Jan. 29, from 6 to 9 p.m. at The Modern Honolulu, EAT THINK DRINK: Healthy People, Healthy Planet presented by Hawaiian Airlines will gather innovative minds to lead a conversation on the symbiotic relationship between wellness and sustainability.

A panel of experts including Kim Johnson of the Kokua Hawai‘i Foundation and Noelani Kalipi of the Kohala Institute will dissect the critical role that consumer actions play in growing an eco-conscious future. The conversation will focus on key questions such as: Where can we identify intersections between wellness and sustainability initiatives and encourage systemic change? In what ways can these two industries work together to act as catalysts for a healthier, greener Hawai‘i? How can global leaders leverage their power to influence a shift towards sustainable consumerism?

 

Featured chefs include Keith Pajinag of Ravish Honolulu at The Modern Honolulu, Eric Oto of Hoku’s at The Kahala Hotel & Resort, Lawrence Nakamoto of Mariposa’s at Neiman Marcus and Troy Terorotua of BREW'd. Unwrap flavorful treats handmade by OnoPops and enjoy a variety of refreshing libations shaken and stirred by Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits.
