Young Hawaiians take viewers on a visual tour of their stunning beaches that are now tarnished by plastic garbage from around the world. However, these students are also helping redefine the future of their State through stewardship activities like supporting a ban against single-use food items. This inspiring video demonstrates how youth can be a powerful force in creating a new future that embraces the traditions of “MÄlama Honua” or “to care for our Earth”.
This video supports science and sustainability outcomes exploring marine ecosystems and the links between healthy environments and human health. The film also offers opportunities for discussions about the traditional ecological knowledge that defines aboriginal respect for the Earth.
The convenience of take-out food is a key component of human culture that has become commonplace in modern society. This resource could support a classroom action project where students identify economical and easily sourced non-plastic food items such as recyclable cardboard containers, then work with local restaurants to implement changes. A class could also collect and distribute new refillable containers to patrons of a local farmer's market to promote the benefits of reducing single-use products.
