the size of the environmental footprint of their entire business from their daily business process, eco-packaging to shipping methods. I chatted with the owner Randee Disraeli, who earned her degree in Geographic Information Systems at UCSB and researched the migratory patterns of tuna at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography. She and Don Disraeli, who holds a Ph.D. in Coastal Ecology and Ecosystems Management, had a dream and vision back in 1983 to create something “That was the right thing, at the right time, for the right reasons” (which Kinaole, their mission statement, roughly translates into).
