MEET OUR TEAM
Meet our GR3EN 'Ohana.
We’re Hawaii organic farmers who believe in empowering people with positive energy from a handful of ingredients that you can pronounce. We firmly believe that energy is not the enemy if it's clean energy from organic ingredients. No cutting corners or compromising quality by using artificial fillers, sweeteners, fake flavors or stimulants. We think you deserve better. Energy should be a good thing.
CEO “Chief Energy Officer”
Sociopreneur/Rooftop farmer/Action Sports enthusiast
Alan has made a career out of challenging the status quo. When he was 15, he took out a $1500 loan and built a successful landscaping business with a hydromulch machine that he designed. In 2010, he set his sights higher. Alan created and installed the world's first certified organic FarmRoof on top of a restaurant in his hometown of Waimanalo. That organic farm planted the seeds for his new "baby", GR3EN Organic Energy. It's the first organic energy drink, powered by kale. Or as Alan likes to say, “Kale just grew a pair.”

Kalei is a local girl, born and raised in Hawaii who loves to travel. Kalei is passionately obsessed with food and spirits and seeing what amazing flavor combinations this world has to offer. Her passion is also fueled by a belief that food is medicine. Her motivation is personal. "Seeing many members in my family deal with health concerns like cancer, diabetes, and high blood pressure, my goal in life is to empower people to educate themselves about what they're putting in their body and where their food really comes from; to make people realize that they're worth it, and they too can make a difference.”

Tannya loves telling stories. It's been a lifelong passion that started with radio shows in her bedroom when she was 5. She’s been blessed to report on the biggest stories in news, sports, and entertainment for 20 years. Highlights include interviews with U.S. Presidents and a one on one with Rihanna (she even gave her an action figure of herself, but that's a whole different story.) Tannya’s favorite stories are about ordinary people doing extraordinary things. She's always scouting for opportunities to spotlight positive, inspiring athletes for GR3EN.
