    March 12, 2017,   Honolulu, Hawaii.   

    Carroll's guests are  Dean Otsuki and Suzanne Frazier from B.E.A.C.H -  Beach Environmental Awareness Campaign Hawaii.  Their mission is to reduce and remove plastic marine debris from our ocean, streams and shores.  They  are sorting debris, identifying sources, bringing awareness, and looking for solutions. They also educate school groups and work with volunteers who help them with their effort to gather and sort plastic and debris.      

    Suzanne tells us debris comes from many sources, including fishing boats, cruise ships, and individuals.  Some even comes from people throwing trash into streams and storm drains that flow into the ocean.   Much of the trash in the ocean lands on our beaches, particularly in Kahuku on Oahu's north shore.    The trash is a threat to both birds and fish.   Albatross look for their food in the ocean, and from there they feed the plastic pieces they pick up to their young.   Bottle caps and tooth brushes have been found in dead bird's stomachs, causing the birds to starve to death.   Suzanne tells us over 250,000 albatross die each year with plastic in the stomachs.   

    Dean and Suzanne also question where the millions of dollars Japan gave Hawaii to clean up tsunami debris went, and why the ban on plastic bags is not working.      For more information visit their website www.b-e-a-c-h.org   or call them at 393-2168.  


                                                                 This is one of the things we are doing every day.

    The pictures below were taken before and after a beach cleanup in Kahuku about 20 years ago.  It is much worse now.   Which way do we want our beaches to look?   





    The second hour Carroll's guests are Tommy Yarbrough and Sharon Yarbrough, President of SEH - Sisters Empowering Hawaii.    On Sunday,  March 26, 2017,  from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.,  they will be honoring six women at their 2nd Annual Women Making History Awards Luncheon.   Last year's celebration was a big success, and this year the theme is  "Redefining Standards, Making a Difference and Inspiring Others".     Sharon talks about the many projects SEH is involved in, from career development to domestic abuse.    For more information about their organization, to buy tickets for the luncheon, check a list of honorees, or provide support, please visit their facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SistersEmpowering.   There is  also information at anyflip.com,  or you can call (808) 599-2998.   Their email is sistersempoweringhawaii@gmail.com
