We're working to increase our fundraising success and outreach into the community. At this stage in Re-use Hawaii's development, a database such as this will help us get to the next level and make a bigger impact in our community. Since we have been in operation for over a decade, we have a lot of contacts and a clear picture about the ways that we would like to further our connectedness to stakeholders.
Our current database is not complete however, we do have our Lightspeed point of sale system that could also be migrated to Salesforce. We envision populating some of the data using staff and volunteers after the Catchafire project's process of setting up our Salesforce structure.
We love waste! In Hawaii, 30% of our waste comes from construction and demolition debris. We work to transform this debris into a community resource. So far, we've kept 9 million pounds of material out of the landfill.
The mission of Re-use Hawai'i is to preserve our natural resources, provide an affordable building material source through alternatives to demolition, and to sustain Hawaii's fragile island ecosystem.
