Our Eco Approach
If you observe a forest ecosystem, you’ll notice it’s biodiversity – soft moss, tall trees, nourishing rain, graceful deer, abundant ants, soaring birds, etc. all existing together in mutuality. While complementing and enriching each other, together they ensure the balance of the entire forest.
As human beings it is our responsibility to ensure the overall balance of our home, the Earth. At Folk Tree Lodge we take this on this responsibility very seriously and joyfully. We strive to be aware of our choices and their implications, and ensure our actions result in a cyclical natural process. In order to transform the world, we strive to transform ourselves and our local interactions.
We have many eco-friendly practices (some found below) and we continuously strive for improvement.
