With films like Seaspiracy and 2040 doing the rounds on social media, environmental issues are, quite rightly, at the front of our screens on a daily basis.
Working alongside these big budget documentaries are individuals who are quietly dedicating their lives to the fight against plastic waste and climate change. One of these individuals is Kahi Pacarro – founder of Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii and director of Parley Tv.
If you’re unaware, Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii are sort of like the #2MinuteBeachClean of Hawaii. Part of the international Sustainable Coastlines project, they look to inspire local Hawaiian communities to care for their coastline.
Frequently called the “catcher’s mitt for marine debris” because of where they sit in the Pacific, the Hawaiian islands are in frequent need of beach cleanups, and are at the sharp end of mass plastic production.

One company that’s taking the plastic fight to major corporations, and the other half of Kahi’s professional work, is Parley Tv. Working as the director of Parley, Kahi and the team aim to “synchronize the economic system of humankind with the ecosystem of nature” by shaping consumer mindset through the use of creative design.
The team over at Surfdome are coming together with Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii and Parley for a live Q&A with Kahi this evening.
So, if you’ve got any questions that you’d like to throw Kahi’s way, then drop a comment on the Instagram post below to make sure they’re aired during the live stream. Otherwise, we’ll see you over on the Surfdome Instagram account @ 19:00 (GMT) this evening.
