WE ARE COMMITTED TO GIVING BACK
Hike Maui is committed to providing memorable experiences, educating visitors, and giving back to the place we call home. Maui has provided so much to this company for more than 40 years, and with that comes a willingness and an obligation to take care of and protect this land.
While educating visitors has been a core part of the company since its inception, the company took a big step forward in its commitment to the community by joining 1% for the Planet in 2023.
1% for the Planet is a group of businesses across the world committed to giving 1% of all revenues back to environmental causes. The organization was started by Yvonne Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Matthews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, in 2002 and has been grown ever since to now include nearly 6000 businesses who have given over $500M.
In a conversation about 1% for the Planet, Yvonne commented, “Sometimes the best thing to do is dig into your pockets and give the money away to the people doing the good work.” At Hike Maui, we have taken the step to do just that.
