“Ecovillages are living models of sustainability, and examples of how action can be taken immediately.” GEN (Global Ecovillage Network)
By purchasing Respecterre, you are encouraging a group of close to 100 people who choose an eco-responsible lifestyle choice, taking positive actions for the planet.
People who have built their own school to give a better education to children and teach them the importance of respecting the earth.
People who have built their house and created their job from walking distance to the school because they know that commuting from home to school or work is the most important part of one's carbon footprint.
People who make their own compost to use it for organic agriculture, who make group purchases for organic food, who are mainly vegetarian and who make their own bread, yogurt, mayonnaise and several other.
People who share and support each other to create a more just and fair society.
