Hawaii Sustainability Blog Launched

October 21, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
The Kauaian Institute, a boutique consulting and research firm, has launched a blog on sustainability in Hawai`i called SusHI at kauaian.net/blog. This blog provides daily coverage of "green" island issues, with topics that range from research on island ecosystems to updates on community initiatives.

SusHI is designed especially for islanders, focusing closely on the science and practice of sustainability to provide readers with a quick, informal, pull-no-punches style that permits readers to easily join in. It is hosted by experienced "green" economist and sustainability consultant Ken Stokes, author of Tending the Garden Island.

"A lot of business and community leaders donít have time to read news or science reports on island sustainability topics," says Stokes, company owner. "But they want to learn, in order to deepen their own understanding of our island challenges. My goal is to provide useful tips in small quantities that can be quickly scanned and absorbed by busy leaders."

The Kauaian Institute opened its doors in June of 2003, and has assisted clients on all islands, including a leading Kaua`i community group, a major Maui corporation and a large O`ahu landowner.

About TKI: The Kauaian Institute is a full-service boutique research and consulting firm specializing in island economies and ecosystems. TKIís focus on sustainability issues from both a corporate and community perspective makes it unique in all of Hawai`i.
