What is the problem?
Everyday people visit the beautiful islands of Hawaii and they often buy beach toys for their children to play with during their stay. Unfortunately, when their vacation ends and they have to leave, they often leave these plastics behind. They are given away in a rush or thrown in the trash which ultimately end up in the landfill. Sometimes, these plastics are swept away by the ocean and can remain in the ocean for thousands of years, damaging the coastal reefs.
This is an image of Kamilo Point in Hawaii, one of the dirtiest places on Earth.
Our toys biodegrade in 100 days or less in compostable environment. We are raising awareness through a social initiative that addresses the waste problem in coastal areas. Partnering with hotels in Wailea, our mission is to change habits one stay at a time.
We want to provide an initiative with the hashtag #cleanbeaches to promote our product and raise awareness of biodegradable options.

|Market Retail Manager||Fairmont|
|In-room Dining Manager||Fairmont|
