What if you could create a bar with zero impact on the environment? We want to open up an eco-friendly bar in Bocas del Toro Panama that will serve as an example for all other bars. Our bar relies on rain water and solar energy to run. We will serve all drinks in recyclable bottles or you can purchase a reusable mug. Our food will be served in hollowed out fruit or paper containers. On the island, we have reused alcohol bottles to build windows, planters, fountains - and we sell recycled bottle items in our gift shop.
The Project FAQs
Some of the challenges of our project are educating people to live simply. When you rely on rainwater, conservation is a must. When your power comes from solar energy - sometimes you have to shut down fans and lights - especially when it is a rainy day and your batteries are not charging at 100%. We think the bar is a great place for people to learn these basic concepts while enjoying the Caribbean lifestyle.
