It Ain’t Easy Being Green!

recycle-symbolHere at CACTUS, we make every effort to be as green as possible.  We use bio-degradable trash bags, to-go bags, to-go boxes, to-go silverware, recyclable to-go containers, coreless toilet paper, recycled paper hand towels, eco-friendly degreasers, and even bamboo picks for cocktail garnishes.  We have our waste cooking oil picked up for use in bio-diesel production.  Our bottles and cans picked up for recycling.  Even our cardboard boxes have a separate dumpster for recycling pick up.  Our employees make a conscious effort to bring their own water bottles, or we have employee reusable cups for them to use.  It’s never easy, but it’s worth it!  If you have any suggestions for products we can use, never hesitate to tell us about them!  We may be a small business, but every decision counts.

 

MahaloBIG MAHALOS!

June was an amazing month at CACTUS!  We welcomed our new neighbors, The Bike Shop and NoaNoa, into the Davis Building.  We had a great day with all the dads on Father’s Day.  We were honored to participate in two wonderful charity events for the Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii at Mid-Pac Country Club, and Ke Kani O Ke Kai concert for the Friends of the Waikiki Aquarium.  Mahalo to everyone!

 

In The Works…

We are planning another special Farmer’s Dinner with an August date to be determined.  Please let us know if you would be interested in doing a tour of Poamoho Organic Farm on the North Shore.  You get to pick the food on a Sunday, then Chef Thomas will prepare it for dinner that Thursday following.  Please email Kristen (you can use the Contact Us form) to express interest.

Also, the artists at the Hawaii Watercolor Society are already busy working on the next installment at CACTUS.  Their theme of “The Aina” will tie together our upcoming Green Drinks event, farm tour, and Farmer’s Dinner.
