Eco-tourism is a ‘Green Revolution’

Antother Eco Kid essay for Chaa Creek's Eco Kid Summer Camp, this time from Alyssa Coleman.


"I want to be an Eco kid because as kids I think we can make a big difference just by the little things we do everyday.  In our country Belize we need to educate the people more about healthy, clean and Eco friendlier ways of living in order to have a beautiful Belize.  We as proud Belizeans should stand up and let people know the proper ways to dispose garbage and other waste.  We need to reuse, like reuse plastic bottles or old tires to plant different plants in.  Reduce, reducing the amount of electricity you use or water, instead of using an automobile walk or ride a bike."

Sustainable Treehouse Community in the Costa Rican Jungle

Sustainable Treehouse Community in the Costa Rican Jungle | Sustainable Business |

Finca Bellavista is a community of interconnected sustainable treehouses set high in the trees of the Costa Rican jungle.

Simply one of these extraordinary sustainable treehouses would be amazing, but a whole network of interconnected treehouses  is indescribable.  Finca Bellavista is a community of tree dwellers living high in the foliage of the Costa Rican jungle.

Community founders, Mateo and Erica Hogan discovered the 62-acrea property on the edge of the Rio Bellavista River with the intention of creating an escape for themselves. Upon brainstorming options for affording the property, they settled on building a treehouse structure and inviting friends and others to join them, the result is the interconnected treehouse community we've shared below. Each structure is connected by bridges and zip lines, which they liken to "the Ewok village in Return of the Jedi."

Interesting, how the Swiss Family Robinson tree house effect almost made me not stop to wonder whose land they're living on.
