The Christmas season can be a challenge to our eco-consciousness: we pour energy into light displays, burn gas on shopping trips, wallow in packaging and wrapping paper, and spend money on gifts that cause more ecological harm than good.

The GMO (genetically modified organism) seed timeline in Hawaii goes back to the mid-90s. An outbreak of ringspot virus destroyed most of Hawaii’s rainbow papaya crops, causing production to fall 40%.
