Q2 2022 No Ka Oi Highway Hui Recipient: Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club

The Adopt-A-Highway program recognized Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club as the second No Ka Oi Highway Hui Award recipient of 2022!

Located in Kaanapali Resort on Nohea Kai Drive, Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club began participating in the Adopt-A-Highway Program about a decade ago. During each cleanup event, their volunteers have typically picked up about 20 bags of trash along Honoapiilani Highway between Kahana and Kapalua. Removing roadway litter helps to prevent pollutants from entering and contaminating Maui’s ocean and other sensitive ecosystems.

“Giving back to the community is very important to us as a company,” said Justin Paki, safety and security manager at Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club. “It’s also a great activity to get our managers out of the office and we always conduct our scheduled cleanup events, rain or shine.”
In addition to its volunteerism for the Adopt-A-Highway program, Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club works to incorporate eco-friendly practices in its daily operations, including participation in the Audubon Society Green Lodging Program and carrying out other community service projects, such as food distributions during the pandemic.

Mahalo to Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club and keep up the great work!
