Hannah Shipman with Blue Planet Foundation was our speaker at our May 1 general meeting. Hannah graduated from Seabury Hall and England’s University of Canterbury. Hannah studied conservation and environment which prepared her for Blue Planet Foundation.
The Foundation is working to have Hawaii be 100% renewable energy by 2045. Currently, Hawaii is 80% dependent on coal and oil.
Blue Planet teaches awareness and advocacy. It has two programs that teach our young people on saving energy and being good stewards.
Here are some simple things you can do to start saving immediately:
✓ wash clothes with COLD water
✓ don’t peek in your oven; the temperature drops 25°F with each peek
✓ turn off lights when you leave the room
✓ watch your small appliances; they may be big energy wasters
