Sustainability is the capacity to endure. It is the potential for long-term maintenance of well being, which in turn depends on the well being of the natural world and the responsible use of natural resources Bio Caribe is putting the common phrase” Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” into action by forming a community centered around creating resource rather than consuming them. Through organic farming, alternative energy, recycling and communal spirit this sustainable community allows its members to enjoy a life surrounded with likeminded people who share the same values as you do.
By producing food, energy, and using alternative building technics members are able to drastically reduce their monthly existences, and even generate income. While a consumer based lifestyle tends to mean longer work days to pay for products produced by others, our proposed life style at Bio Caribe enables members to produce basic commodities for themselves leaving more time for things you really want to do and personal enjoyment.
In the long run, we’ll all be living sustainable lifestyles. Many of us are already moving that way–positioning ourselves to live more sustainably–at a pace of our own choosing, rather than waiting until circumstances force our hand. Some who are further along are trying not only to live more sustainably, but also to pass on what they’re learning.
