LEHI, Utah, Oct. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Vivint Solar (NYSE: VSLR) 2.9 million travelers flocked to Maui in 2018, and while Hawaii's economy centers on tourism, the travel industry can have a negative impact on the state's diverse ecosystems. That's why Vivint Solar today launched its "Eco Adventure Challenge" that seeks to pay one green living enthusiast $2,000 to plan, execute, and document an ecotourism trip in Maui. In addition to the payment, the company will provide the challenge recipient with a $4,000 travel stipend which they can use to book eco-friendly transportation, lodging, and activities. The company's goal with this challenge is to bring awareness to the importance of making eco-friendly choices while traveling to eco-rich destinations like Maui.
