In February, to promote environmental awareness, the State Department of Transportation partnered with the Waikiki Aquarium for our first Rainworks campaign.
What is Rainworks? Rainworks are positive messages and art that appear when it rains! More on Rainworks here.
The campaign incorporates the use of Rainworks to educate the public the importance of trash reduction and preventing storm water pollution. At the installation event, a few of our ETC members sprayed the Rainworks hidden message clues around the Aquarium at two locations.
Want to see them for yourself? Here are some clues as to where you can find the hidden messages:
Location #1: We go by the names “Maka onaona” and “Ho’aliona”, and we are an endangered species. You can find us resting and sleeping on shore when we’re not underwater.
Location #2: At the strike of 9:00AM, below the “AQUARIUM” sign is where the glass doors open and the exhibits come alive!
In addition to the Rainworks reveal, ETC’s SWMP booth was there to promote the Trash Free Hawaii message and educate attendees on how Hawaii’s storm drain system works.
Check out one of our team members as he reveals the hidden Trash Free Hawaii message in the video below!
