Artist/marine scientist Ethan Estess partnered with Sustainable Coastlines Hawai’i and the Center for Marine Debris Research to create Coming Home to inspire individuals to reduce their reliance on single-use plastics, choose sustainably-sourced seafood and to promote stewardship of Hawai’i’s environment. This project was made possible due to the support of Outrigger Hotels and Resorts as part of its global conservation initiative called The Outrigger ZONE (OZONE).
