In our continued effort to reduce waste wherever possible, Choice Health Bar charges 50¢ for each made-to-order item ‘to-go’. We encourage customers to utilize our dishes and cutlery for dine in meals, to BYO reusable cutlery and containers, and to participate in the Hui Zero reusable takeout container program.
Funds collected from the to-go charge are used to offset the cost of takeaway containers and help us to invest in innovative waste diversion solutions. Choice is proud to be the first food service provider on Maui to effectively return our takeaway containers to soil through a pilot project with West Maui Green Cycle.
We seek to alter the norm of throw-away culture, to inspire conscious consumerism and invest in responsible landfill diversion for our community. Mahalo for your support.
Reducing our impact wherever possible
We are constantly evaluating our environmental influence, seeking alternatives to reduce waste and connecting with the eco conscious community. Zero-waste practices are an integral part of who we are. We know there are always ways to improve, so we aim to be environmental leaders. As a business and community gathering place, it is our kuleana (responsibility) to do everything that we can to help protect our island home, the land, and the ocean that surrounds us.
Individual superfood packages are (thankfully) a thing of the past as our açaí now arrives in the form of frozen cubes. Our managers even reuse the large bag that holds the cubes!

Bottle Buy Back Program
The cost of our fresh, cold pressed juices includes a bottle deposit. Customers are asked to rinse and return the bottle for a $1 Choice token, which is redeemable for anything on the menu. These bottles are then sanitized and reused for more delicious juice!
Keeping it Fresh, Keeping it Local
Sourcing produce from local farms allows for the freshest, organic ingredients to be served to our customers. It also reduces our footprint and supports our local economy. We love knowing our farmers by name and having personable interactions with suppliers.
Repurposing Organic Waste
As a plant-based operation, we make a lot of compost. All of the juice pulp and organic bi product of our menu preparation is separated and donated to local farms where it feeds happy animals and regenerates soil for more fresh produce.
Choice has been selected as first restaurant on Maui to work with West Maui Green Cycle to compost PLA to-go containers. Separated through our Malama Pono station, these items are mixed with organic compost, returning to fertile soil to nourish more local produce.
