PFK goes guerilla with a HI-5 bin making workshop on 11/11

At our next Monthly Meeting on the evening of Thursday Nov. 11 (Yes! Veteran's Day!), we'll feature a HI-5 recycle bin making workshop and presentation by artist and UH Professor Gaye Chan of and Get your pliers and gloves ready!

Thursday 11/11 6:30pm-8:30pm
Castle Room (Next to Ohana Karaoke)
131 Hekili Street, Suite 131 in Kailua

EATING IN PUBLIC can be reached at and is supported by Hawaii People's Fund. Sick and tired of the "sad" recycling program in Hawaii, Gaye Chan and Nandita Sharma designed some "Anarchist Bins" (hint: they are anarchist because they are not public nor private, belonging to no one AND everyone). They are putting them everywhere and now WE can too.  Check out the group's Facebook page and photos too @Eating in Public HI-5 Recycling Bins. I love this video of their presentation on "Remaking the Commons."

If you have them, please BRING some extra pliers like those pictured as well as some work/gardening gloves.

Also, remember to BRING a filled and refillable drink bottle and, if you can, any snack you want to share.

Hope to see you there! Please take a moment to RSVP at our Facebook page.

Come watch "Tapped" Oct. 14th 6:00pm

We are pleased to announce a FREE screening of the documentary "Tapped" on Thursday evening, Oct. 14th, hosted in part by our supporters Mu'umu'u Heaven and Kanu Hawai'i.

Where: Mu'umu'u Heaven, 767 Kailua Road
When: 10/14/2010 6:00-8:30pm 
The film (75 min) will begin at 6:30pm and will be followed by a brief discussion.

"The high cost -- to both the environment and our health -- of bottled water is the subject of this documentary that enlists activists, environmentalists, community leaders and others to expose the dark side of the bottled water industry. Americans may rethink their obsession with bottled H20 when they learn of the unregulated industry's willingness to ignore environmental and health concerns, and the problems that arise as a result.

"From the plastic production to the ocean in which so many of these bottles end up, this inspiring documentary trails the path of the bottled water industry and the communities which were the unwitting chips on the table. A powerful portrait of the lives affected by the bottled water industry, this revelatory film features those caught at the intersection of big business and the public's right to water."

This film will change your relationship with the water you drink.
We invite you to meet and greet with your neighbors, gain awareness and knowledge, and get passionate about going plastic free. Refreshments will be provided. Reusable water bottles welcome. We'll also detail the latest Plastic Free Kailua developments before the movie begins.
