Did you know?—There’s over a thousand locally owned maker-producer businesses on Hawaiʻi Island making everything from paddleboards to nut butters, ukuleles to vitamins, and boats to beer! Supporting our local businesses means more diverse, living-wage jobs, opportunities for entrepreneurs, reduced environmental impact, less reliance on imported goods and tourism, and a more resilient economy.
