In Episode 4 of the Disruptors for Good podcast I spoke with Dallas Crum, co-founder of Vivid Roots, a social impact travel/apparel company impacting lives in Guatemala and Ecuador.
Vivid Roots is a social enterprise that gives clean water to those in need with every purchase. They teamed up with Rotary International to fund their first water project in Chiquimula, Guatemala. They are now continuing the partnership with multiple Rotary clubs & the non-profit Water For The Americas to implement sustainable clean water systems in developing countries. The team consists of four friends, all in their early 20s, from Boise, ID who decided to start a brand that embodied their fun and energetic passion for impacting the world in a fun way.
Vivid Roots mission is to inspire people to live life vividly and help those in need along the way. The do this even more now by taking small groups of people on life changing Impact Adventure Trips and using proceeds to increase access to clean water, education, and health services in under-served communities.
