ECOVILLAGE

“Ecovillages are living models of sustainability, and examples of how action can be taken immediately.” GEN (Global Ecovillage Network)
RespecTerre is part of the ecovillage "Cite Ecologique". Our workshop is located on the estate of the ecovillage and all owner and most employee are active member of the intentional community. 
The Ecovillage's Mission : 
Develop a lifestyle respectful of the Earth, harmonious and multigenerational inspired by Nature in order to offer children a learning environment consistent with our values.
We have built our own school to give a better education to children and teach them the importance of respecting the earth.
We have built our houses and created our jobs from walking distance to the school because we know that commuting from home to school or work an important part of one's carbon footprint.
We make our own compost and use it for organic agriculture. We make group purchases for organic food. We are mainly vegetarian and make our own veggies, seeds, bread, milk, cheese, yogurt, mayonnaise, tomato sauce, canned food.
We share and support each other to create a more just and fair society.
