A New Shade of Green

Cleaning up our environment

Everything in Hawai'i is brought to the island via boat on Wooden Pallets.

The Wooden Pallets are not collected and sent back, the Wooden Pallets remain on the island.

The Tiny Home Sisterhood has collected many Wooden Pallets that currently fill landfills, or worse yet, taken out to the sea and dumped. With our unique Pallet Bracing System we are constructing Tiny Homes from the Wooden Pallets. We are using the Wooden Pallets and Pallet Bracing System for the Framing. The exterior walls that cover the wooden pallet framing is selected from a variety of salvaged materials. Similarly, the material selected for the interior walls that cover the wooden pallet framing is decided upon during the Design Consultation.
