We abide by the “Aloha Spirit Law,” which is a real law that exists in Hawaii

It is encoded in the Hawaii Revised Statutes, Section 5 - 7.5: “The Aloha Spirit is the coordination of mind and heart within each person,” the law declares. “It brings each person to the Self. Each person must think and emote good feelings to others."
