The Ecological Aims of Nature Walk Costa Rica
NatureWalk Costa Rica an ecological subdivision and a new concept in real estate, offers an ideal balance of economic and ecological benefits working in harmony to create a Superior Investment Platform, a great investment that's good for the planet
By: James Cahill
For many of us that need to be refreshed, Global warming is attributed to the build up of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from the burning of fossil fuels chiefly from industry and transportation. (factories and cars). As a result you will see whole countries now moving to adjust their carbon output and achieve carbon neutrality. Ie: what they make in Carbon Dioxide they offset with carbon absorption.
Costa Rica has stated that it aims to become the first carbon neutral country on the planet and will do so by 2020. On of the principal ways it will do this is by Planting Trees. Trees especially tropical varieties sequester (use ) a lot of carbon dioxide because they are growing 12 months of the year versus trees in northern climes that grow slowly or not at all for months of the year..
So we have harnessed something as simple as the power of the TREE and in doing so created a socio-economicly friendly and a responsible vacation investment model in support of the Costa Rican governments initiative for carbon neutrality and for eco-touristic development.
Our aim is not only to be ecologically successful but also economically sustainable. To this end we have created a complete sustainability cycle that grows the trees, harvests and processes them into teak homes producing economic value. Environmentally the teak trees have done there job and the teak homes hold carbon for a very long time and then teak trees re-grow renewing the cycle.
So we think we have taken this sustainability idea one giant step forward incorporating good investment, vacation use and local economic benefits to Costa Ricans that are not a one time event. The result of this is a responsible model for future development in tropical tourism areas. We hope others will incorporate these ideas elsewhere.
The direct result of the sale of the first 6ha of launch offer lots being sold is that over 30,000 new trees will be planted.
