Have Fun Do Good – Volunteer Adventure Travel

Travel experiences have a way of leaving a lasting impact. Unfortunately that impact is often negative. From the considerable carbon footprint of air travel to overcrowding and congestion of precious natural environments, global tourism is leaving its mark on the planet. However, for more conscious travelers this impact can be reduced through sustainable actions like carbon offsetting, supporting small businesses, bringing reusable gear, and more. One new business is taking things further by providing unique opportunities for travelers to come together and give back while also experiencing the world. Have Fun Do Good is a boutique travel company that offers unique adventure travel experiences with a “do good” volunteer twist. Trips include National Park Tours and spectacular places like Costa Rica, Breckenridge, and Yosemite. And each experience consists of at least two volunteer projects ranging from environmental to social causes. But HFDG’s experiences are more than volunteering, they’re also about people connecting and coming together through a common goal. Visit amazing locations, have awesome experiences, and give back in the process.
