VegFest O‘ahu’s mission is to offer the community a fun-filled opportunity to experience the many benefits of choosing plant-based foods and lifestyle to increase and maintain good health, contribute to a solution for climate change, and encourage compassion for animal welfare.
VegFest O‘ahu offers tools and inspiration to make following a plant-based diet easier and to build a supportive and engaged local, plant-based community.
VegFest O‘ahu is intended to be a bridge builder that reaches out to all people on a journey towards improving their health and the planet. We want to show how a vegan diet is nutritious, tasty, and easy to achieve and encourages everyone wherever they may currently be in their process towards healthy living.
We use an approach called Aloha Activism that focuses on sharing our messages of compassion, health and sustainability in funny, loving, inspiring, thought provoking, inclusive, nurturing and encouraging ways. We want to create a family-friendly experience that will result in transformational change for our island community.
VegFest O‘ahu strives to be zero waste and plastic free and is complying with guidelines to be certified as a Green Event by the Hawaii State Energy Office. Hawai‘i’s island state is vulnerable to climate change and VegFest O‘ahu will increase awareness of the link between diet and climate change so that people choose to eat less animal products to minimize their environmental footprint.
VegFest O‘ahu is a place to meet caring folks who are passionate about making a better world and get to know them in a casual, friendly environment.
