Sustainability is carefully considered with everything we do at Wai Kai.  From water usage to our food suppliers to the products in our retail shop, we do our best to make conscientious choices that will help reduce our footprint on this earth.
sustainability intro
Water Quality
The Wai Kai Lagoon may be man-made, but its water is naturally filtered through millions of gallons of groundwater daily. Regular monitoring over the past nine years confirms the water quality meets or exceeds all state safety standards.  Here's how they keep it clean:
Natural filtration: Millions of gallons of groundwater flow through the lagoon daily
Seaweed power: Chara seaweed absorbs nutrients and prevents algae blooms.
Cleanliness measures: No direct drainage or excessive landscaping fertilizer allowed.
Ongoing monitoring: Scientists continue to monitor and develop sustainable maintenance plans.

Endangered Water birds
Keep your eyes peeled for endangered water birds while visiting Hoakalei! Look out for the ‘Alae Ke‘oke‘o (black with white beak), the Koloa Maoli (small brown duck with green wing patches), and the okinaʻ (black and white with pink legs). These birds are nesting here, so please be respectful and avoid feeding them.

Only leave your foot prints
At Wai Kai, we take our commitment to the environment seriously.  Because of our beautiful location near the lagoon and ocean, we've implemented Sustainable Event Standards for all our venues.  Here's how we're making a difference:
Ditching disposables: We say no to single-use plastics! All disposable products must be 100% BPI certified compostable.
Recycling: Aluminum and glass bottles are encouraged.  All bottled water must be aluminum or cardboard boxed packaging.
Local love: We support local farmers and vendors by encouraging the use of fresh, local ingredients in all food offerings.
Less waste, more wow: We discourage unnecessary decorations like balloons and streamers, opting for reusable and sustainable options.
