In an effort to inspire mindful travel, industry partners and volunteer organizations across the state have come together with an initiative that encourages visitors to leave Hawaii better than when they arrived. Volunteer projects range from reforestation and tree planting to self-directed beach cleanups, ocean reef preservation, and creating Hawaiian quilts for our Kupuna (elders). By making a positive impact, you’ll have a more enriching travel experience and can even enjoy a free extra night from participating hotels.
By following best public health practices. By forming a deeper connection with our culture. By helping us perpetuate the beauty of the land. And leaving with a trip that truly stays with you, too.
