This cleanup was in preparation for Sunday’s Ocean Day Mālama Kanaloa event. In only one hour, 10 students and 5 adults managed to remove 1,082 pieces of trash from the bayfront – approximately 55 lbs in 2 bags. The crew mostly picked up land-based trash including lots of cigarette butts along with some more interesting finds like a cow bell, a shaving razor, and several small bundles of derelict fishing nets.

This mosaic will be filmed in time lapse fashion and posted on YouTube.

La Quinta is offering to support the Kohala Chamber of Commerce by providing $15 for each person who signs up through the Chamber. Minimum age to participate is ten years old. This is a unique opportunity that will showcase our island and provide marketing exposure on a global scale.

The last Guinness World Record was achieved by La Quinta in 2011.

This was the Human Mattress Dominoes where they donated 850 mattresses to local charities in New Orleans. This event is still getting exposure today as it is getting close to 2 million viewers.
