Maui is a wonderful place to live, work, and play. In fact, we think that Maui might be the best place to live, work, and play. Of course, there is the fantastic weather, the beautiful scenery, the aloha, but there is also a fantastic network of nonprofit organizations working to keep our island and its communities healthy and beautiful.
Maui’s Habitat for Humanity runs this fantastic little store. Half Goodwill and half Home Depot, if you’ve got a project around the house, check this store first. The prices are low and all the profits go towards reducing homelessness on Maui. Their new location at 970 Lower Main Street is open from 9am to 4pm Monday through Saturday and is full of new and slightly used construction materials at major discounts. For information on how to donate your extra construction materials, call 986-8050.
More and more, our lives revolve around electronics and these electronics are becoming more and more disposable. Keep your old computers, TVs, cell phones, and other gadgets out of our landfill by dropping them off with this nonprofit recycling center. E-cycling accepts drop offs every Tuesday and Saturday morning in Wailuku at 901 Lower Main Street. In addition to recycling broken electronics, e-cycling also refurbishes computers and other equipment and donates them to schools and non-profit agencies.
