Every Komo Koa Jewelry purchase from this website benefits the Mahalo ‘Āina Initiative.
We sincerely thank you for your support!
MAHALO ‘ĀINA Give Back to the Forest is a new initiative of the Hawai‘i Forest Institute. In partnership with the Hawai‘i Forest Industry Association (HFIA), the goals of MAHALO ‘ĀINA are to expand our public and private partnerships in order to gain support for the protection and perpetuation of Hawaii’s forest ecosystems.
MAHALO ‘ĀINA is not simply a tree planting program. In addition to planting trees, it is helping to support total ecosystem management and provide forest stewardship opportunities and educational programs at project sites throughout the State. Funds raised through MAHALO ‘ĀINA help support propagation, outplanting, and long-term care of plantings; site maintenance; cultural and environmental education programs; coordination and promotional activities.
