HONOLULU – Outrigger Hotels and Resorts is helping both its guests and local kama‘āina to enjoy a Sustainable Summer by offering a wide variety of on-property activations, sponsorships and/or collaborations with local events, as well as retail and restaurant specials – all in some way linked to preserving and protecting our precious environment.

Outrigger’s Sustainable Summer commenced on June 8 for World Ocean Day and runs through Aug. 31. This platform is an extension of Outrigger’s ZONE (OZONE), the hospitality brand’s global conservation initiative that provides enriching experiences for Outrigger guests, hosts and local communities with an emphasis on healthy oceans and coral reefs.

A key activation in this campaign is OZONE Day at Waikiki Aquarium, which returned for its sixth year today, June 25. An oasis of ocean-minded organizations came together with educational booths, and family friendly offerings including, Surfrider Foundation, NOAA, Friends of Hōkūle‘a and Hawai‘iloa, UH Sea Grant, The Coral Conservancy, Board of Water Supply, Parley for the Oceans, Raw Elements sunscreen, Sustainable Coastlines Hawai‘i, Bishop Museum and Waikiki Aquarium.

“As owners and operators of premier beach resorts in Hawai‘i, Fiji, Thailand, Mauritius and the Maldives, Outrigger has a front-row seat to the link between healthy oceans and healthy communities,” said Monica Salter, VP of global communications and social responsibility. “The goal for Sustainable Summer and OZONE Day is to help inspire both guests and hosts to take individual action towards a sustainable lifestyle, which collectively makes a positive impact on the future of our planet and lives far beyond this summer season.”
