As our earth and societies become increasingly imbalanced, businesses around the world will be forced to respond to more and more disruption, putting at further risk “business as usual.” Our opportunity as a global Sustainable Brands community is to see the devastation happening all around us as a catalyst for demonstrating the role of business as a support for the communities we are part of and serve, and also for imagining how we might collectively participate in Regenerating Local as we assist in helping imagine what rebuilding for a healthy future might look like.
At SB’23, join us for a special benefit on Tuesday night, in partnership with the Hawai’i Community Foundation. One of the largest community foundations, As we come together in unity, our aim is to provide immediate assistance to the resilient community of Lahaina, Maui. Additionally, we aspire to serve as a source of inspiration and unwavering support as the arduous process of rebuilding commences. Just as we have collectively achieved countless times in the past, our combined efforts have the potential to create a profound and lasting impact.

Support local businesses as Maui recovers.
Following Hawai‘i Governor Josh Green’s announcement that West Maui (excluding Lahaina) will reopen for visitors as of October 8, we are lowering fares to help you get to Maui and support the island’s local businesses. These local businesses are an important part of the community and many of these small business owners are ready to welcome mindful travelers back to the island. Please have compassion and mālama(care for) the island during your stay and support local Maui businesses while giving Lahaina the space it needs to heal and recover.
Co-host the SB Connect For Maui Benefit
Sponsorship support is sought to help defray the costs of this benefit. Sustainable Brands will be donating $5,000 from every Connect for Maui Benefit sponsor directly to the Hawaiian Community Foundation. Micah Kāne, CEO and President, of the Hawaii Community Foundation will join to share more about the current situation on the ground, convey current needs and potential use of proceeds in the near and long term, and talk with attendees about how we might help them contemplate strategies for rebuilding regeneratively.
