Designated Hawaii’s state fish in 1984, Humuhumunukunukuapua’a—(“Humu” for short) or Hawaiian triggerfish—earned its moniker from ancient Hawaiians because of its pronounced snout (the word, quite literally, translates to “triggerfish with a snout like a pig”).
We have released the Humuhumunukunukuapua'a bracelet in honor of all of the hard working volunteers in Hawai’i working tirelessly every week and sometimes every day to collect and remove debris from their shores. Hawai’i has one of the worst problems with plastic pollution because of its proximity to the middle the Pacific trash gyre. And despite their problems, the people of Hawai’i remain optimistic and enthusiastic about keeping their shores debris free!
The rope used to make these bracelets was collected during beach cleanup project in Hawaii in 2018 by PLL co-founder, Melody Webster, while volunteering with the Kokua Hawaii Foundation at James Campbell National Wildlife Refuge.
Planet Love Life nautical bracelets are handcrafted from recycled marine rope debris. Each piece of salvaged rope is unique with slight variations in color and condition, caused by natural weathering. All bracelets are 100% waterproof & fastened with a custom tag featuring the Planet Love Life logo and brand name.
Every bracelet purchased helps to keep our oceans & beaches clean! Proceeds directly fund beach cleanup projects.
