Volunteers comb the beach between Kahului Harbor and Paukukalo for litter Saturday morning while participating in the inaugural “Become Circular Beach Clean Up,” presented by Be Circular, Aloha Outdoors and bChill. “You don’t have to go far to fill up a bag,” said Christian Barber of Kihei. Volunteers said they were finding a wide variety of plastics, especially plastic straws, plastic bags, as well as cigarette butts and rope. Organizers said they plan to hold the cleanups in the harbor area on the first Saturday of every month, 9 a.m. to noon. Volunteers can register online at be comecircular.org/beach-clean-kahului-harbor/. Become Circular encourages people to apply circular actions like recycling and reusing to solve everyday problems.
