Trevor Tanaka

Sustainable Hawaii Toolkit is the result of a 16-year old Hawaiian youth’s quest to answer the question:

What is Sustainability?

This question sparked Trevor Tanaka’s six-year sustainability journey. Through his efforts, the Hawaii Senate and House of Representatives passed a Sustainability Resolution (in just six months). The Resolution requires every public school student to have access to sustainable education so they can be part of the solution, get green jobs and help build a sustainable Hawaii.
