Cascada Expediciones and EcoCamp Patagonia renew carbon offsets

Cascada Expediciones and EcoCamp Patagonia have offset their carbon emissions for the 2011-2012 season. In the year 2008, Ecocamp became a Carbon Neutral company with the goal of minimizing emissions of CO2 as much as possible and in the future hopefully becoming a CO2-free lodge. Between June 2009 and June 2010 EcoCamp offset 183.680 tonnes of CO2 emissions and between July 1st 2010 and June 30th 2011 they offset 229.402 tonnes.

Carbon Offsetting

 
At EcoCamp we avoid transport pollution by buying all of our food from nearby farm suppliers and greenhouses who have only to drive a few hours to deliver supplies, as opposed to other hotels who receive deliveries on flights from the capital or abroad. Also, all of our handicrafts and decorations and some furniture is made by local artists who, again, have limited transport requirements.
