Bokashi Bucket Hawaii


The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that Americans waste enough food to fill the Rose Bowl stadium every day. When the end comes, use a Bokashi Bucket to compost your leftover food scraps, or start already and feel like Captain Planet as you generate nutrient-rich soil that, in turn, nourishes the food you grow. Created by Each One Teach One Farms, the Bokashi Bucket makes composting at home easy and mess-free. Harnessing the power of beneficial microbes via an anaerobic process (meaning no oxygen is involved) and fermentation, Bokashi Buckets break down compost in a way that’s completely natural and safe for people, plants, and the environment.

Purchase your textiled and fashionable expression-of-self from brands and products that integrate responsible manufacturing and design. Utilitarian with a twist, and in hues abundant, Gaye Chan’s handwoven baskets re-envision trash as usable products. Made of bright and fun colors, they are also durable and water resistant. Better yet, if you find yourself in an apocalyptic pinch and need a way to carry supplies, Chan provides a tutorial on how to make your own.

KP Studio Hawaii


Even if the world ends, that doesn’t mean you have to compromise your hygiene. All-natural body products from Keiko Hatano’s line, KH Studio, offers the perfect remedy. Hatano began experimenting with essential oils and natural ingredients to produce her simple, well-packaged sprays and lathers. A favorite is her refreshing, lemongrass-based body powder. You can find her products at fishcake design store in Kaka‘ako (which is where I work, for full disclosure).
