BLUESMITHS & HCC partner to protect shoreline

BLUESMITHS at a glance is an ocean-oriented clothing company.  Hawaiian Canoe Club at a glance is a canoe club.  But if you dig a little deeper you’ll find two organizations that are committed to our ocean and natural environment.

That’s why they’ve teamed up to install fencing and plant native plants at Kahului Harbor to control erosion and build back the natural sand dune.
