Our Green Gifts to Others

Over 10,000 soaps, lotions and other products are donated to local Maui schools, shelters and first-responders.

In a 2020 partnership with Clean the World, Grand Wailea recycles its soap and bathroom amenities as part of the #soapsaveslives movement, participating in wash programs that prevent diseases through handwashing to improve global health.

Grand Wailea has invested more than $4M in smart energy saving measures, enabling the resort to save more than 6 million kilowatt hours every month, enough power for about 12,000 homes on Maui, assuming the average home uses 500 kilowatt hours each month.
