List Sotheby's International Realty Hawaii

Hawaii is known for its pristine landscapes, gorgeous beaches, and breathtaking mountain ranges. In an effort to reduce the negative impacts of pollution, littering, and ultimately– climate change on our island home, Hawaii has instituted one of the strictest bans on plastics in the nation, making significant strides in the quest to protect the land.

The new ban, which officially took effect on January 1, 2020, prohibits Oahu’s stores from distributing any form of plastic bag, even compostable ones. Over the next couple of years, Bill 40 will begin to take effect, which is a comprehensive prohibition bill that will eliminate all plastic utensils by January 1, 2021, and all plastic containers by January 1, 2022.

There are many ways to adapt to the new and upcoming bans while reducing your carbon footprint and impact on the land. The next time you’re out shopping for groceries, remember to bring your reusable tote or produce bag to store your purchases. You can also opt for reusable bottles or mugs for your beverages, and avoid using plastic straws whenever possible. A few small changes can go a long way in our efforts to protect and preserve the land around us!

Aloha and welcome to one of the nation’s premiere tax and wealth transfer conferences. Practitioners interested in keeping abreast of the latest developments in tax and wealth transfer education are certain to welcome the opportunity to participate in the 56th Annual Hawaii Tax Institute sponsored by the Hawaii Tax Institute Foundation and Chaminade University of Honolulu. This year’s program provides unparalleled education and professional development opportunities delivered by a diverse and distinguished faculty of recognized tax and wealth transfer authorities with a positive approach to current and practical subjects. While the Institute is designed primarily to serve as a forum where tax and wealth transfer oriented people may freely exchange ideas on practical problems, professional status is not a prerequisite for registration. This program is designed for attorneys, accountants, financial planners, planned giving professionals, bank and trust administrators, insurance agents, elder law specialists, non-profit administrators, wealth management professionals, enrolled agents, educators, and others who would benefit from high quality continuing education. The highest level of learning has been the hallmark of prior Institutes and we shall endeavor to again maintain this standard.

27. June 2019 · Comments Off on List Gives Back: Beach Clean Up with Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii · Categories: Hawaii Real Estate, Oahu Community, What's Happening on Oahu

On Saturday, June, 22, our company supported a good cause that hits very close to home. An island in the middle of the ocean, we all love our home for different reasons— but one thing that almost everyone can agree on is the unique beauty of the nature found on the Hawaiian Islands, especially its renowned coastlines. However, in order to preserve the incredible nature in Hawaii, we must care for our earth, beaches, and oceans. “Caring” for our environment not only means cleaning up the environment by picking up trash, plastic, and other non-biodegradable materials, but by reducing the amount of trash and waste we create in the first place.

List Sotheby’s International Realty Hawaii’s agents and staff came together to support this cause by volunteering for Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii. Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii is a grassroots, local nonprofit organization run by a small team of dedicated staff and supported by passionate volunteers. They make their impact on the world by inspiring local communities to care for their coastlines through fun hands-on beach cleanups, coordinated educational programs, team building corporate cleanups, waste diversion services, and public awareness campaigns. They taught us that cleanups can only do so much, so they now utilize their cleanups to inspire better consumer behavior and continued coastal stewardship through cleanups, education, social media, and more.

We hope that this inspires you to put a little effort into reducing your trash and waste, and being conscious of picking up litter when you see it. We all love our home, and it’s time to give a little love back. Together, let’s care for our land. E Malama Ka ‘Aina.
