CARBON COMPENSATION & SOCIAL IMPACT FUND
NOW THERE'S A BRIGHT IDEA
Your boat ride to and from Blue Apple generates around 7kg of CO2 and until electric boat technology improves, we can't get it down much more. The concept of 'Carbon Offset' is a complex one, so we mix it up, with part certified carbon offset, part local environmental restoration and part community development.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Day Pass - 5,000 pesos (under $2) per person
Hotel Stay - 20,000 pesos (under $5) per room
In a typical month, our guests contribute around 5 million pesos to the fund (between $1,000 - $1,500)
1,000 pesos per KG of glass recycled. Helps your visit to Blue Apple be waste free, while creating jobs for local people.
Goes to the village next door for anything from school supplies, clean-ups, elderly care, sports sponsorship and more. A committee of local people representing the village's diverse population determines fund allocation.
