What a great idea! An eco village. Where everything is eco friendly! That was the idea that two British men, Ben and Mark, came up with. Just think of the possibilities! Living off the land, no electricity, no technology, no comforts that we’re so used to in today’s society. You’d save a ton of money, that’s for sure! I wouldn’t be able to survive without air conditioning though! And I hate bugs when they land on me! An eco friendly toilet? What’s wrong with these people??? Well… at least they’re helping the world, and maybe they’ll inspire some more people to do this and save energy, green house gases, and MONEY! That’s probably the only reason I would live like this. Over time, I’d become a millionaire! The one thing you wouldn’t need to worry about though is firewood! There are a LOT of trees on the island they are building their eco-village on so they have enough wood for firewood!
The idea for this eco-village all came about when Ben and Mark wanted to try out an experiment for a village of 5,000 people from all around the world in an eco-friendly environment. They found the island of Vorovoro in Fiji, and they paid the natives living there to rent the island from them. Also, the Fijians would benefit from having this eco-village built on their little island.
This experiment was carried out jointly online and on the island. People online got to vote on what was happening on the island and then the eco-villagers would follow their recommendations. One of the wonderful things about this great idea is that they probably inspired a lot of people to be eco-friendly like them. I know they sure inspired me! I hope one day I can be like these men and make a home that is eco-friendly!
So do you think that you could vacation on an eco-friendly island with no modern-day amenities? Check out the website and see! http://www.tribewanted.com/vorovoro
