Hawaiian Telcom Think Yellow Go Green

Posted in Environment on February 7th, 2010

Its that time of year again to think about what to do with last years telephone directories and how to do it the GREEN way! With just a week left in the Think Yellow Go Green program, we wanted to remind you that those outdated telephone directories can still be recycled up until Feb. 14, 2010. Drop off locations and times are detailed below.

If you lined up last year’s total recycled directories, end to end, it would stretch the total distance from Honolulu to Maui! Hawaiian Telcom Yellow Pages wants to exceed last year’s total of 90 tons to ensure all outdated directories are recycled into usable goods.

The neat thing about this project is that Hawaiian Telcom Yellow Pages has partnered with wonderful people to make the result a lasting impression on Oahu. All recycled directories will be processed at Island Shell, a local recycling plant, and converted into environmentally safe products including materials for vehicle oil change kits, mulch and wall insulation products which will then be sold and used locally. Think Yellow Go Green will ensure its mission is supported on each island from start to finish.

This program only runs through Feb. 14, so be sure and spread the word about the Think Yellow Go Green recycling program to your friends, family and coworkers.

Oahu Think Yellow, Go Green Recycling Program Schedule:

Final Weekend:
Friday, Feb. 12 – Sunday, Feb. 14

Time:
10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Drop off locations:
Ward Centers
Windward Mall
Waikele Premium Outlets
Kahala Mall

Honolulu Joins In Twestival Global 2010

Posted in Music on February 7th, 2010

Once again Honolulu joins in the global charity event called Twestival which uses social media to bring together people in support of global good. Last year we took place in the first ever global Twestival and in continuing with the annual event we have jumped onboard again to bring our love and aloha to those less fortunate. This year’s charity is Concern Worldwide who not only helps those in extreme poverty in Africa and Asia but is also helping those in need in Haiti who were hit hard by a recent devastating earthquake.

What is Twestival?

On Thursday 25 March 2010, people in hundreds of cities around the world will come together offline to rally around the important cause of Education by hosting local events to have fun and create awareness. Twestival (or Twitter Festival) uses social media for social good. All of the local events are organized 100% by volunteers and 100% of all ticket sales and donations go direct to projects. Follow @twestival for global updates or @hitwestival for local Honolulu updates.


What Is Twestival?

If you’d like to help out and volunteer with Honolulu Twestival you can join in the conversation or send a blank email to: hitwestival@googlegroups.com and receive updates direct in your inbox. We are seeking sponsors and individuals who can help obtain sponsors, special giveaways and also volunteers who can help at the event with setup and other tasks throughout the night.

For more information please contact me or post a reply and I’ll get back to you shortly. This years event is on the evening of Thursday, March 25th with the venue still to be determined.

Meet the 2010 Honolulu Twestival team on Twitter: HiTwestival/Team

Let’s all come together and show Concern for the world in which we live.
