Kimber Carhart, Kihei, Maui: "Since we cant afford to change the cars we drive right now I ride my bike to work a minimum of 2 days per week. Not bad for a 43 year old female with a 17 mile commute round trip from Kihei into Wailuku. We also have a monthly energy contest in our family to see if we can reduce our consumption of both water and electricity each month. We buy organic first and local whenever it is available organic."
James Lincoln IV, Wai‘anae, O‘ahu: "Will turn off the lights every time when I go to school."
