This past Saturday on Nov 19, Hawaii experienced it's first ever CARROT MOB! The basic concept is to BUYcott instead of boycott business to influence change. For a more in depth explanation you can check out their webpage here...

This past CARROT MOB was held at The WINE STOP.

"The Wine Stop--a Hawaiian owned and locally operated business--wants to reduce their consumption of fossil fuels to help Hawai'i become energy independent."

...and it was a huge success! From what I understand, The Wine Stop usually brings in about $1500 on a Saturday. They pledged to put 80% of the profits made above that $1500 towards retrofitting their store. From 1pm - 5pm on Nov 19th, can you guess how much money they brought in?

Almost $7000!!!

Thanks to KYA Sustainability Studio, the people of Hawaii, and other local business concerned with Hawaii's energy independence.

Next CARROT MOB will be at Kale's Natural Foods Store in the Hawaii Kai Shopping Center (next to Safeway)! Here's the FB event page.

Maybe see you there?

Still here...barely


I'm still here. I haven't abandoned the blog.

I've just been going through a...I've just been going through some things.

Stuff like my faith and what it really means to be a follower of Jesus. & am I doing that or just living an American life with a little 'Jesus' sprinkled on top?

I think about our planet and how we can't afford to ignore how irresponsible we have been with the resources we have been blessed with. I've always thought or imagined that there was an unlimited amount of things and that this planet would always be able to sustain us. But there is a lot of evidence saying otherwise. Not only regarding fuel...but water as well.

Then the greed that driving so much of this. I feel like it's a gigantic wave that can't be stopped.

There is so much that is wrong.

But what can I do to make it right?

Not much.

But recently I felt like God reminded me that, in spite of my seemingly good intentions, it can never be about me. It has to be about Him.

Who would I rather have working things out? Me? Who is just one out of what is now 7 billion people on the earth? or Him? Maker of the Heavens and the Earth?

I'd take Him, too.

And even then it's hard 'cause there's always that pull to try to figure things out on my own.

Then verse from the bible came to mind and gave me some clarity:

So Jesus explained, "I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself. He does only what he sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, the Son also does." John 5:19 NLT

I does comfort me in the sense that God doesn't want me to look at all the world's problems and fix all of them...although if that could be done, then that'd be great. But He wants me to watch Him and just do what I see Him doing.

That's seems easier.

We'll see.

Thanks for reading.
