Hurricane Preparedness







Its Hurricane Season in Hawai'i... & it only takes one storm to change your life & community.


Tropical cyclones are among nature’s most powerful and destructive phenomena. If you live in an area prone to tropical cyclones, you need to be prepared. Even areas well away from the coastline can be threatened by dangerous flooding, destructive winds and tornadoes from these storms. The National Hurricane Center and the Central Pacific Hurricane Center issue watches, warnings, forecasts, and analyses of hazardous tropical weather.

Below are some important steps you can take to ensure the right safety steps are being made. All efforts to protect your 'ohana & community will only help you in times of need.

Safety Information for Community Members




reef-safe sunscreen 

A huge topic in our pacific islands is the harmful chemicals found in most sunscreens. Luckily our Maui County Council are in the process of banning the harmful chemical Oxybenzone from sale, use, and distribution. We encourage local companies that take the critical steps towards a healthy lifestyle. Using reef-safe ingredients like zinc oxide, you're protecting yourself, and our reefs. Our reefs play a main role in the balance of life, and remains a main resource for our traditional families, and fishermen. 

Raw Love is made for people just like Jenna (owner, & dive instructor, ocean lover) who love to dive, surf, swim, paddle, hike and adventure in the sun with friends in tow. Sun protection is something we all use on a regular basis and we started to question what the long-term repercussions of spreading these chemical cocktails onto our skin would be. In an attempt to avoid ever having to answer that question, we designed a non-toxic sunscreen with high quality ingredients that is safe for everyday use. Raw Love is just starting on an exciting journey into educating and promoting healthy living.  We are excited for you to join us in this journey! Protect and love yourself, protect and love your environment! Spread the LOVE!!  (www.rawlovesunscreen.com)
