Are you thinking about traveling to Hawaii? Well, you are not alone. Last year, more than 2.9 million travelers visited Maui. You may think that is a good thing for the state, but even though Hawaii's economy really depends on tourism, the travel industry can have a negative impact on the state's diverse ecosystems.
Enter Vivint Solar.
The solar company has launched its Eco Adventure Challenge. They want to actually PAY one of you green living enthusiasts $2,000 to plan, execute, and document an ecotourism trip in Maui. That is not all. Vivint will also provide the challenge recipient with a $4,000 travel stipend. They can use that to book eco-friendly transportation, lodging, and activities. Vivint's goal with this challenge is to bring awareness to the importance of making eco-friendly choices while traveling to eco-rich destinations like Maui.
"Vivint Solar is committed to helping homeowners make more environmentally responsible choices about how they power their homes, but we realize the impact of humans on the environment extends beyond the home," said Miranda Barnard, VP of Marketing at Vivint Solar. "That's why the goal of this challenge is to bring awareness to the potential for making more environmentally-conscious decisions while traveling to destinations with diverse ecosystems like Maui."
Applications are open now through November 18th. Following November 18th, a board of Vivint Solar team members will carefully review each application and select one candidate to carry out the challenge. Applicants must be over the age of 18 and authorized to work in the United States in order to be considered. We will evaluate applications and select a candidate based on the following criteria:
- Creative and engaging ideas for documenting the trip. We're looking for someone with interesting ideas for videos, photos, and other assets that could help share their experience.
- A basic understanding of how they could make environmentally-conscious choices during their travels.
- An active social media presence.
