Life’s a Beach

by Iwalani 0 Comments


Lately I’ve been thinking of ways to get the community involved in keeping our island clean, so I figured I would start with sharing my journey.

What first sparked my concern was the amount of trash that I’ve seen on hikes and on the beach lately. During my free time I love spending days at the beach. If there’s waves I’ll surf, if there’s no waves I’ll dive, and if the water sucks then I’ll take out my trash bag and clean up the beach.  There’s this huge ” adventurer” movement going on. People exploring all these places beautiful places that they have seen on Instagram. Unfortunately, what most of us don’t see if the littering epidemic that follows.

BUT, how great would it be if we could show a new perspective to these same people and get them involved with cleaning up our earth? It first starts with home. Recycling, using less waste, cleaning up our streets, touching our beaches, the places we enjoy, and then going from there. So next time you go on a hike or to the beach try and bring a trash bag. See what fills it up!  You may be surprised at how good it feels to clean up nature! It’s the simple things in life that make it so enjoyable. Let’s continue to take care of the places we enjoy the most.

Shell divers -Try diving for leads and rubbish

Beach goer’s– Bring a trash bag and clean up ( you can get a tan at the same time .. it’s a win win )

Hikers– Bring gloves and a bag for rubbish you find on your trail

Drinker’s– Remember your bottle caps… I find soooo many in the sand


Enjoy the journey.




Plants for health

Growing plants can be a stress reliever

Psychologist agree that life can be very stressful. Worrying about bills, work, and other things can lead to all sorts of health issues.

I live in Hawaii and the weather is great for growing all sorts of plants. Taking a few minutes a day to take care of a plant allows one to focus on the present time. This small act can move one away from stress.

So, buy a plant. Ask the person selling the plant the best way to care for it. Cactus and other succulents are very easy to grow and care for.

Another option is a enclosed terrarium. The system is already set up and most times takes the minimum of care. Again consult the seller on the proper say to care for it.

Just remember that focus your attention on caring for the plant and let the rest of your problems take the back seat for the moment. The idea is to let your body enjoy a time away from the stress and your body will thank you.
