In the Hawai’ian language, there are few words with more embodied love and appreciation than the word for thank you: Mahalo.

From the early game testers….






To the folks who helped us raise startup funds through a Kickstarter campaign…

To those who helped us make it go viral…

…GBO Hawai’i would never have become a reality without our wonderful friends, who we like to call Green Economy Superstars!

A very special mahalo to:
