The Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum in Honolulu has announced the elimination of the sale of all single-use plastics on its campus.

The campaign is part of the museum's larger initiative to serve as a positive example of sustainable practices and conservation in Hawaii.

"Sustainability is one of our core values, and we're committed to demonstrating change by taking action and instituting sustainable practices throughout our organization," Melanie Ide, Bishop Museum president and CEO, said in a statement. "In addition to eliminating the sale of all single-use plastics, we've also installed water bottle filling stations throughout our campus. New signage helps teach visitors about the impact of reducing single-use plastics, and our educators are incorporating a waste-free lunch curriculum into the museum's field trip materials."

The museum partnered with Kokua Hawaii Foundation's Plastic Free Hawaii and the Surfrider Foundation on the initiative.

Additionally, the Plastic Free Pipeline by artist-scientist Ethan Estess, an interactive sculpture made from 2,000 feet of derelict fishing nets and marine debris collected from Kahuku Beach on Oahu's North Shore, is installed on the museum's campus.
