Here’s How You Can Make A Difference The Next Time You Visit This Iconic Mountain Town
One of the very best parts of traveling to new destinations is the opportunity to appreciate the landscape. And yet, some forms of travel can actually harm the environment if people aren’t mindful of their impact. Fortunately, thanks to the organization called Pledge For The Wild, travelers can make a big difference at a low cost.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Pledge Wild encourages visitors to donate $1 per hour spent outside to the environmental nonprofit of their choosing. If you’re looking for ideas, the website lists a few organizations they love. Click here to learn more about this incredible campaign.
