Young Gmelina Trees in a Plantation for Carbon Catching, and create a Neutral CO2 Balance for the Il Giardino Italian Restaurant in Puerto Jimenez


Once again Il Giardino, the First and Only Italian restaurant in Puerto Jimenez, is rising the level for this kind of Business in the Osa Peninsula but not only.

In the last months we at Il Giardino Italian Restaurant, studied and defined the terms of a deal with a local Farmer for to ” buy” or better “rent”a number of young Gmelina trees for to catch the carbon that our business is producing for its activity, and trap it from the atmosphere inside the wood of their trunks.

In the Tropic a plantation tree is fixing inside the cells of the wood of its trunk an average of 22-25 kilograms per year of CO2, caught  from the air that he ” breathe ” during the Photosynthesis process .

We calculate with the help of a program, like the Carbon Footprint Calcualtor, the amount of the CO2 we produce per year for to be able to serve our Legendary Plates, and we get our Carbon Footprint in Tons of CO2 produced through the restaurant operations, transports, cooling, conditioning of our Guest Rooms, down to the power needed for to fill the Table area with the soft, nice music.

So we found that we had to ” rent” at least 119 trees for to compensate with their ” catching” the CO2 we produce, but, just for to stay on the safe side, we rented 250!!

In the future years these trees will grow fast and fix the CO2 in their wood, that, once they will be mature, will be transformed in boards,planks, furniture, or any other thing that will retain the CO2 for many many years, reducing a little the Greenhouse effect that is destroying the life, as we know it, on our Planet.

The farm where we rented our trees has many more available …if some of you, for to do a real act for the change, would rent some of them, and going Carbon Neutral, please, be free to contact us…we will be happy to help anybody to try to save Planet Earth!!!

….and, remember, that from now, when you will have some of our plates, you would be sure you will not produce any damage to the World.
