WE STRIVE FOR SUSTAINABILITY
THE RESPONSIBLE TRAVELER
The Wild Traveler is committed to demonstrating sustainable travel on our teen adventure tours. Sustainable travel is conscientious travel. It means being careful with the environments we explore and respecting the communities we visit. Whether leading tours or out on our own personal adventures, The Wild Traveler strives to travel sustainably.
SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY
Hawaii imports 90% of all goods to the islands. The Wild Traveler buys local, organic, and fresh foods from farmers markets whenever possible to support the local people and community, and to lower our carbon footprint by reducing the amount of imported goods and packaging.
The Wild Traveler has cultivated relationships with trusted locally owned businesses and local guides that share the same commitment to sustainable practices.
VOLUNTEER WITH LOCAL NON PROFITS
The Wild Traveler works directly with several non-profit organizations in an effort to preserve the places we travel. Each of our tours includes a service component that focuses on restoration, preservation or conservation of the native environment.
CULTURAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION
The Wild Traveler’s teen adventure tours promote environmental and cultural awareness and respect.
