The Play

HTY is proud to continue our collababoration with the City and County of Honolulu Environmental Services Division.  The centerpiece of these efforts is an original 55 minute musical that travels to Oahu schools promoting messaging of Recycling, Reusing and Reducing.  The play is free to public schools and is updated every year to align with the current practices and priorities of the City and County.

The TV Shows

Our collaboration has extended to two 30 minute television episodes of our Emmy Award Winning program, The HIWay.   This is local television, designed for young people and families.  All of these are available for free and can be used by any interested teacher, school or family.  Links are included here for easy access and the episodes can also be viewed across the Hawaii News Now stations.

More Resources

Additionally, there are songs, games and many educational resources available here and on the City and County’s Website.  We encourage teachers and families to use these resources in creative ways and every resource is FREE for public use.
