(HONOLULU) – Nine employees of the Coca-Cola Company based in Hawai‘i played hooky from work today.  They volunteered on behalf of the Ko‘olau Mountains Watershed Partnership (KMWP) by hiking up a trail on the west side of the mountain range in order to plant native koa.  This was a continuation of The Coca-Cola Company’s nationwide commitment to replenish all water it uses in its bottling operations.
