The 2nd Annual Hawaiʻi Zero Waste Summit will take place virtually on May 28.

In partnership with the conservation group Zero Waste Hawaiʻi Island, Hawaiʻi Island Sen. Laura Acasio (District 1) is sponsoring the 2nd Annual Hawaiʻi Zero Waste Summit on Friday, May 28 from 8 am to 3:30 pm.

The virtual event will feature several panel discussions focused on reducing waste; creating pathways to community composting; and building efficient reuse systems in Hawaiʻi. The summit also will feature opening remarks from Lt. Governor Josh Green and include guest speakers Dr. Kamanamaikalani Beamer and Rep. Nicole Lowen.
