Eco-Logic: a social enterprise on sustainable tourism

“Eco-tourism is tourism that respects and enjoys the local environment - both nature and culture - and creates jobs locally.”

Eco-Logic: a social enterprise for sustainable tourism

“Eco-tourism is tourism that respects and enjoys the local environment - both nature and culture - and creates jobs locally.”

Most types of tourism and travel are by definition not environmental friendly or sustainable….

At Eco-Logic we do try to keep our carbon footprint as low as possibly and we do make a positive difference by supporting the local community.

We work as environmental friendly as possible, within our financial and practical limits. According to perma-culture and sustainability principles, we designed the big pattern and are improving the details step by step.

With the help of visitors from all over the world!

Eco-Logic works hand in hand with the Thai Child Development Foundation (TCDF), which is on the same premises.

 

For visitors who are interested we are more then happy to explain about our sustainibility programs, such as : the organic farm, the Recycle Bank, the Natural Clay building project, the water filter systems, the 'Say NO to plastic bags' project,  environmental educational projects, and cooperation and partnerships with our neighbors and the Thai Culture and language courses.

Eco-Logic thinks global, but acts local!

Eco-Logic: "What is next?"

Working on sustainability is a never ending chore. We are located in an area where it is not easy to get access to sustainable products, tools or material.

And being a small social enterprise we lack a lot of knowledge too.

Our next step is to get joined ventures with organisations who share our vision and can help us with knowledge, material and even investments.

Don't hesitate to contact us If you, your company or organisation would like to partner with us, or like to have information on:

  • organising educational programs on sustainability, perma-culture, environment

  • hosting groups on mindfulness, women empowerment, foraging, yoga and wellness

  • supporting us as a company (CSR)

  • bringing schools and groups to us for environmental camps and teambuilding

  • promoting Eco-Logic as a venue

  • investing in growth and improvement of our location and accommodation

Together we can improve, educate and inform to make a change and the world a better place!
