There are many ways you can be a part of Malama Maui Nui’s mission. We believe the health of individuals, communities, nations and people all around the world is intrinsically tied to a healthy environment. Everything comes from the environment- what we eat, what we wear, what we breath. That’s why it’s important to malama our lands and focus on how we, as individuals, can come together collectively and can create a better world for tomorrow. 

Community Cleanups are the most basic, hands-on way for one, two, twenty, or one hundred people to make a difference by removing rubbish from our public spaces. We invite everyone in Maui County–resident or visitor–to organize their own cleanup in an area of Maui they love. Want to plan a cleanup? We can help!

The annual Litter Index and Community Appearance surveys as outlined by our national affiliate, Keep America Beautiful is another way by which staff and volunteers can visually estimate the presence of litter within our communities, identify littering hot spots, and help determine whether littering behaviors are changing over time. Sound like a cool Citizen Science opportunity to you? That’s because it is! Let us know if you want to get involved.
