Resource Recovery Maui 2019 Replay


Faith Chase, a 49-year resident of Maui, is a mother and grandmother who has testified at many Maui County and Hawaii State hearings. Her interest in island agriculture inspired her turn from graphic design to writing.

This event serves as a delivery mechanism for important education and awareness. Presenters spoke on subject matters relating to water, trash, energy, community organizing and cultural resources. We featured speakers that address contentious issues with vigor and resolve, environmental and social impact campaigns that boast direct action rather rhetoric and repeated failure. Bringing attention to the issues and identifying action steps help people become aware and thus begin to care and then take direct action.

Maui needs to make serious considerations on managing resources. This break in tourism gifts this county the time to stop and reconsider directions to go in.

Resource Recovery Maui works to complete important conversations and move towards solutions application. Last year the event was streamed on the internet as it will be this year. Perhaps this down time we are experiencing will garner more Resource Recovery Maui 2020 event participants.

Here are the Resource Recovery Maui 2019 featured expert speakers and presentations:

Simon Russell from Hui O Malama ‘Aina makes presentation regarding East Maui water:


Mahina Martin from Maui Electric Company speaks to Maui County’s energy status and needs:

Travis Leggitt from Reef Power Maui shares research on using limu or seaweed as a means to deal with Maui’s sewage waste. The recent Supreme Court ruling on the Lahaina sewage injection wells makes this presentation timely with solution possibilities:
