Cut Climate Change by Eating Your Veggies

by Down to Earth

With the upcoming Earth Day celebration on April 22nd, it is fitting that we take a moment to reflect on how we’re treating our planet and what we can do about it. We’ve compiled a few thoughts mainly from the information gathered by the United Nations, which has been studying this issue for some time.

Down to Earth to Open New Kaka’ako Store in Fall, 2017

Our newest Down to Earth store will be a 13,000 square foot location just a few blocks mauka of the SALT at Our Kaka’ako cultural center.  Down to Earth will be on the ground floor of a mid-rise development called Keauhou Lane at the corner of Keawe and Pohukaina Streets. 

Kaka’ako is part of the urban core of Honolulu that is experiencing explosive growth.  The development itself will have 209 residential units and other retailers.  It is on the same block as another development that will be 40 stories high and have 388 units and a rail transit station. 

Gratitude Awakens Compassion and Wisdom

This upcoming Thanksgiving holiday is a great reminder to count our blessings. One way to do this is to take 15 minutes out of the year and meditate on Gratitude. This is becoming an increasingly important topic in the mainstream healthcare and yoga communities. For good reason. Feeling and expressing gratitude can have a profound effect on your life—especially if you do it on a daily basis, all year round.
