American company to pay one lucky candidate $2,000 for taking an eco-friendly trip to the Hawaiian island of Maui.
Maui is the second largest island in Hawaii, the American state is a volcanic archipelago located in the Central Pacific. Known for rugged landscapes, clear waters, tropical foliage and sandy beaches Maui offers visitors a range of outdoor activities. The volcanic Haleakala National Park is the island’s highest peak, the Hana Highway leads to the pools and waterfalls of Ohe’o Gulch and the 30 miles of beaches offer the chance to swim, surf, snorkel or dive.
Figures from solar power company Vivent Solar stated that 2.9 million travellers visited Maui in 2018. Whilst tourism is said to be the central point of the economy in the state of Hawaii, the travel industry also has a negative impact on the diverse ecosystems within the area.
With a mission to raise awareness and highlight the ways in which travellers can make eco-friendly decisions, Vivent Solar launched the ‘Eco Adventure Challenge’.
Miranda Barnard, VP of Marketing at Vivint Solar said: “Vivint Solar is committed to helping homeowners make more environmentally responsible choices about how they power their homes, but we realise the impact of humans on the environment extends beyond the home. That’s why the goal of this challenge is to bring awareness to the potential for making more environmentally conscious decisions while travelling to destinations with diverse ecosystems like Maui.”
Until 18th November 2019, hopeful applicants over the age of 18 and with permission to work in the U.S. can apply to the board of team members at Vivint Solar as they search for one lucky applicant to complete their Maui challenge.
The team are searching for someone creative with engaging ideas and the ability to create images and videos to share their experience. An understanding of how to make environmentally conscious eco travel decisions and have an active social media presence are also required.
The selected candidate will be responsible for planning, executing and documenting an ecotourism trip in Maui. In return Vivent Solar are offering $2,000 plus an additional $4,000 for accommodation, travel expenses and eco-friendly activities.
