                                           Don’t Buy the Hype!

                      We all know what hype is. Hype is convincing you that some thing, some one or some idea that
may or may not be worth anything is the greatest ever. It is designed to convince you to buy, vote for, or invest in
whatever because you can’t live and/or solve all of your problems without buying it, believing it, or voting for it. It
is the sales marketing tool most designed to convince you that you haven’t come close to having everything you
  Here in the islands we call it “shibai,” or “ho‘omalimali,” but another name for it is “perception management,”
and perception is everything. You don’t believe that? Think about it!
  When was the last time you bought something pricey which was more than you could afford or had intended to
pay but you JUST HAD TO HAVE IT because it made you feel better about yourself, made you feel more attractive,
more desirable, more everything you want to be. The truth is that it didn’t do any of those things. You were still
the same person but, be honest, didn’t you walk taller, feel better about yourself, more attractive, more womanly
or manly? Not because you actually were different but because you perceived yourself as different and therefore
felt differently, acted differently, were different. You were, for a time, Cinderella or Prince Charming. There is noth-
ing wrong with dreaming as long as we also, even if it is subconsciously, realize that even in fairy tales the clock
must strike midnight and we must turn back into ourselves and face reality. It’s when we deny reality that we get

                   Caring For Our Land
                         By René Siracusa, Malama O Puna

              Tips for Life Without Plastic Shopping Bags:
   Whether or not the County Council passes Bill 17, the Plastic Shopping
 Bag Ban, we should all recognize that it would be a good idea to take per-
 sonal responsibility and, at the very least, reduce our personal depend-
 ency on these items. There are many good reasons to do this, starting with
 the pollution created by their manufacture: they are a petroleum-based
 product (think oil spills) and the oil refineries produce massive amounts of
 air pollution. At the consumer end of the cycle, as we all know, there is
 the (too often) ‘mis-disposal’ along our roadsides and in our oceans, as
 well as the failure of the plastics to break down and biodegrade.
   Unfortunately, many of us have become so used to the convenience of
 these bags that we can’t image life without them. But it wasn’t really all
 that long ago when there was no such thing as a plastic shopping bag
 (here is where I date myself) and people managed just fine. We had fabric
 shopping bags as well as cardboard boxes and paper bags - both made
 from recycled paper - to carry home our groceries. These are still available
 today. As a matter of fact, there is a larger variety of cloth and recycled
 shopping bags, in many sizes and colors, than ever before, and they are
 washable and can hold more weight than plastic. Shoppers at Island
 Naturals and Cost-U-Less are used to providing their own bags or using
 the boxes that delivered the merchandise to the store. These stores do a
 brisk business and have saved money on purchase of plastic shopping
 bags. In addition, they do not have the problem of disposing of all those
 boxes. And they can pass the savings on to their customers, because,
 make no mistake, those bags you are given at the register ARE NOT
 FREE - their cost is included in your grocery bill.
   But so many people have testified that they re-use their plastic bags for
 other things, such as their garbage, and would have to actually purchase
 trash bags if the ban goes into effect. The good news is that there are al-
 ternatives: if you have an animal, the bag the feed comes in is serviceable      To report Drug
 for garbage. And if you recycle and compost, you will have less garbage           Activity call:
 and won’t ‘need’ so many plastic bags. I use the boxes from the grocery
 store to sort my recyclables, and it is really easy. They are all lined up in
 one area and as I need to dispose of something I just toss it into the ap-
 propriate box! When the box is full, I pick it up and carry it to the car and
 take it to the recycle center. Usually I can even re-use these boxes. But
 once they have gotten too old and funky, they can be recycled too - or
 used as a mulch around my plants.
   A representative of the senior center’s nutrition program testified against
 the bag ban, claiming that the seniors take their leftovers home in the
 plastic bags, without which they would experience a hardship. Hello. Why
 can’t they bring a lidded container with them and transfer their leftovers           The s
 to that? This is not rocket science.                                                No ifsafest rule
                                                                                       drive or buts
   I believe that we can all be creative and find alternatives to plastic shop-
 ping bags, enjoy less pollution, ease the strain on the landfill, protect our
