"I care deeply about our land, water and environment and working with Sustainable Hiker has helped me understand the impact I personally can have in ensuring that our wonderful resources - land, water and environment will be here for future generations.  Tom very professionally demonstrated that you can make positive change through your investments.  Investing in companies that favor green policies and/or influencing companies that currently do not to move in a green direction is the influence an investor has.  Thank you Sustainable Hiker." Kari Kronborg

As a Summit County, Colorado Local Tom Koehler, founder of Sustainable Hiker, is passionate about driving people toward solutions for the health of our forests and waters.
