Billboards in Hawaii?

Is Hawaii better off without billboards?

In 1912, a group of women thought so and vowed to protect Hawaii’s natural beauty. When they patronized a store, they left this note:

“I will not buy anything advertised on billboards as long as I can find a substitute, or a last resort, go without.”

This was the start of The Outdoor Circle. It would fight against billboards in Hawaii for the next fifteen years.

In 1927, a billboard ban became law. Thus, billboards are banned from Hawaii today.
