Clean beaches with Lapoint Costa Rica

Clean beaches with Lapoint Costa Rica

We are here at Lapoint in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica enjoying the amazing nature, food, and lovely people. This is one of many surf camps they have across the world. We want to show you some of the lovely environmental efforts this camp is doing to give back to nature as much as we get from it! 

Cool things to know about Lapoint:

  • Every week they arrange a beach clean up and a presentation on the importance of taking care of our ocean at all camps across the world
  • Every month at this camp they pick up 1 TONN of trash from the beach! WOW
  • They collaborate with Nordic Ocean Watch, a Nordic environmental organization made by surfers who love to give back to the ocean
  • They sell sunscreen from Suntribe that’s all natural and is reef-friendly
  • They have meat-free Monday every Monday, and will gladly cater you if you’re vegan.
Delicious tropical breakfast – every day they serve fresh fruit and bread and if you’re lucky you get pancakes and fried banana. They also cater to all allergies and diets

Cool things about Lapoint Costa Rica:

  • The recycling stations make it available to sort our trash into four different fractions: plastic, trash, organic and paper. The organic (the food) is fed to the horses next door. Bonus fact: the horses are vegan <3
  • We are encouraged to not use any single-use plastic at the camp – and we haven’t seen anyone do it 🙂
  • We’ve enjoyed the most amazing vegan food all week. Everything from tropical fruits to quesadillas and taco bowls.
  • We gathered about 13 kilos of trash at this week’s beach cleanup!

 

The Lapoint quiver – you have so many nice boards to choose between for all levels

Offsetting our emissions through ClimateCare

Offsetting our emissions through ClimateCare

We’ve offset our emissions on our trip to Costa Rica! Yay! We wrote a bit about that in this post. Have you tried it before? ClimateCare is used by British Airways, Lonely Planet and Rough Guides among others.

//Da har vi investert i ClimateCare for første gang for å offsette utslippene på vår tur til Costa Rica. Vi har skrevet om det tidligere, i dette innlegget. Har dere prøvd det før? I følge Teknisk Ukeblad brukes denne siden av blant annet British Airways, Lonely Planet og Rough Guides.
