When our founder visited Kauai for a vacation in April, 2018 he arrived 2 days after the entire North side of the island was wiped out by a flood. His visit became an outsider's view of survival, a community in action, and an intense focus on protecting what remained.
Throughout his visit, he met several residents that had their lives turned upside down by the flooding. Homes were lost, farms turned into lakes, bridges were washed away, and rescues via helicopter were ongoing. The most impactful piece, however, was the aloha that the residents carried with them.
Malama 'Aina translates as "a means to care for and nurture the land so it can give back all we need to sustain life for ourselves and future generations." This is the essence of sustainability, community, and responsibility.
