PURA VIDA

IS ZERO WASTE

WASTE

“Zero waste” is about community action driven by a value system in which we believe that nature doesn’t create waste, only humans do.

In Costa Rica we have built into our cultural identity the concept of pura vida. This means pure life. To us Pure Life is zero waste. In nature there is no waste. Everything is rather a resource for another system. While Costa Rica is known worldwide for its clean energy, reforestation, among other natural resources and wonders there is still much to do.

Our commitment
