Chaco, the maker of the finest quality adventure footwear, is teaming up with the Green Living Projectâ„¢ this summer to help promote its lecture series taking place at various R.E.I., LL Bean, and Eastern Mountain Sports locations across the U.S. and Canada.
Presented by National Geographic Adventure, the nationwide Green Living Projectâ„¢ Lecture Series is a must-see, multi-media event for any Africa enthusiast, adventure traveler or sustainability advocate. The lecture will revolve around an expedition led by the Green Living Projectâ„¢ that documented sustainability projects across Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania in March 2008. Also the series will include valuable tips about responsible adventure travel including the latest new eco-lodges, wildlife conservation, alternative energy, community projects, and volunteer opportunities throughout East Africa.
â€œChaco is thrilled to be part of this great opportunity with the Green Living Project,â€ said Brian Scranton, Director of Marketing at Chaco, â€œWe are passionate advocates of alternative forms of education. Rob and his team are providing an incredible venue for developing nations to learn about ways to jump over the industrial age and go right to a sustainable way to liveâ€.
