In cases where current laws inhibit the ability of sustainable communities to function to any degree, we look into either amending the current law in question or having new legislation introduced and passed. This legislative process may be done on either on a county or state level.
Currently we are looking at building codes and the issues of using recycled materials, bamboo, other native sustainable building material, as well as things like compost toilets, et. al.
This section has posts related to our findings, including examples of laws in other states or locally that support our goals, new ideas, and reports of our progress working with the County of Hawaii.
