Honored to speak at Lanikai Elementary school yesterday. Thanks to @trustthebum and their new nonprofit "Protect the Groms", I got to remind kids about protecting themselves under the sun and staying passionate with their work. I was really inspired by the sustainability habits they have throughout the school; they use biological waste management with thermal composting, vermicomposting and have a flourishing garden. They also serve local and #organic lunches. Makes me want to go back to elementary school!
Mahalo to Peter Labrador for filming a few waves of mine in Maui.
