In this vignette, Brody briefly introduces his research and travel in Kauai. He describes the island’s beautiful scenery and contrasts his own view of Kauai as a vacation destination with the view of the housekeepers at the Starwood hotels, who view the island as a workplace. Brody mentions the difficulty of incorporating sustainable design in the hotel industry without compromising labor conditions.
