As a hippie momma, I’m all for anything that is environment-friendly and for sustainability. I’m glad that more and more people are becoming eco-conscious and are mindful of what they consume as well as what they put out. Another great thing is that slowly, businesses and establishments are also embracing this idea of being eco-friendly; one of which is the Carcar Eco Farm Resort. 

We’re excited to be introducing to you the first-ever hotel in Cebu to have accommodations made out of upcycled container vans. The hotel and resort aim to promote the 4Rs reduction, reuse, recycling, and recovery. They transformed container vans into a three-story hotel and as cottage roofs.

The hotel currently has 10 rooms and more rooms are being constructed. The rooms are located beside the pool for the convenience of the guests. They are also building board rooms and a conference hall for meetings, functions, and events. 

Carcar Eco Farm resort also has installed solar panels as a source of energy. They advocate the sustainability of our future through this smart choice. As well as promoting healthy living – by offering guests the options of freshwater fishing and vegetable picking. I think it’s also a nice form of bonding with your friends and loved ones, catching and gathering your own food.

I personally think that solar panels as a source of energy are a very clever way to utilize natural resources. Solar energy represents a clean and green source of energy and solar power is a great way to reduce our carbon footprint. There’s nothing about solar power that pollutes mother nature. It doesn’t release any greenhouse gasses; it just needs a source of clean water to function and that’s it – making it safe and environmental-friendly.
