RI President Holger Knaack’s theme for 2020-21 is Rotary Opens Opportunities. Rotarians create opportunities that strengthen their leadership, help put service ideas into action, and improve the lives of those in need. The world needs Rotary now more than ever. It is up to us to make sure that Rotary Opens Opportunities for generations to come.

Eco Tip of the Month
Kick Gas and Go Electric
You can enjoy a zippy ride, save money on fuel (yes, even with Hawaii’s electricity prices), and dramatically reduce your transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions when you trade in your gas-powered car for an electric model.
 
EVs in Hawaii already reduce emissions by 2/3 compared to their gas counterparts, and as we move to 100% renewable electricity, those same cars get cleaner every year. New EVs have ranges of 150-300 miles. With Hawaii ‘s short driving distances, if you can plug into a 120V outlet where you park you can top off each night and avoid ever relying on public chargers.
 
Learn more about the benefits of EVs in Hawaii or find an EV Expert near you for your next EV purchase.  This tip was facilitated by Lauren Reichelt, Clean Transportation Director at  Blue Planet Foundation and Member of Eco Rotary Club of Kaka’ako.  Website: www.ecorotary.org
