The Coconut Traveler is proud to participate again this year in Giving Tuesday. Our company ethos is to support organizations that protect Hawaii and the people who live here. Through our Responsible Tourism Fee, which is added to every customer itinerary, to date we have raised close to $20,000 all of which will be donated today!
The Coconut Traveler’s Responsible Tourism Fee directly benefits local organizations by providing needed financial resources to those that don’t, or can’t, access tourism resources. As a result, we offset the negative impacts of our clients traveling to and throughout the Hawaiian Islands.
We have partnered with three grassroots, all volunteer organizations, which will benefit equally from our Responsible Tourism Fee this year; they are:
Hawaii Association of Watershed Partnerships, because we rely on healthy watersheds for our drinking water and its benefits to our community and environment are endless
Malama Na Honu, a group committed to the health and well-being of the honu, Hawaiian sea turtle
ReTree Hawaii, a local organization that is planting trees on the major islands, and beyond shade and beauty, native tree planting is essential to a healthy climate
The Responsible Tourism Fee is voluntary, an invitation to do better that we extend to all of our guests. And while a very few guests have declined to participate, our commitment to paying it forward is such that The Coconut Traveler will pay the fee for those guests.
We look forward to planning a journey for you that celebrates the Hawaiian Islands and lifts up your generosity to sustain, restore, and preserve this special place.
Visit. Experience. Give and Restore.
