The Hawaii Convention Center joins AEG1Earth in recognizing World Water Day on March 22nd.
Some of our Water Conservation Efforts include:
- Automatic dispensers for sink faucets, hand towels, hand soap and hand sanitizer in all restrooms save on water, towels and cleansing product.
- Low-flush toilets and urinals and low-flow aerators in sinks and showers are used throughout the building to reduce water use.
- Installed artificial turf on 25% of lawn space to reduce need for watering
- Xeriscaping and drip irrigation in the landscaping minimize water use.

What is World Water Day?
Sustainable Development Goal 6 is crystal clear: water for all by 2030. By definition, this means leaving no one behind. But today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive.
Marginalized groups – women, children, refugees, indigenous peoples, disabled people and many others – are often overlooked, and sometimes face discrimination, as they try to access and manage the safe water they need.
This World Water Day, 22nd March, is about tackling the water crisis by addressing the reasons why so many people are being left behind.
