  • (1888PressRelease) February 28, 2015 - Look around you, what do you see? Must surely a world of concrete, steel, noise and pollution. But our planet still offers several regions that are well conserved and have minimum impact by man. We want to keep it that way to be able to enjoy nature without the pollution and crowds that massive developments generate.

    Two young entrepreneurs came with an idea to create the first environmentally responsible travel organization that follows green practices, providing an example of conservation and setting the rules for the future. As a conservation and sustainable travel organization they plan to work based on three principles: commerce, is perhaps the most important sustainability topic these days, conservation, is about earth-friendly building and nature's protection, and finally they believe that forming and educating a community is essential to the process.

    Anica wants to integrate an innovative structure that will focus on five topics: business development, standards and best practices, awareness creation and information sharing, research and consulting, and leadership.

    The Sea of CortÚs is one of the most diverse seas on the planet and because of overfishing, climate change and excessive urban and tourism development, today a lot of animal and plant species are facing extinction. An example of this is Vaquita, only 97 specimens remain in the wild.

    They're currently working on a project to start creating a department that have the lowest carbon footprint possible, and after many months of research they came up with a design that incorporates appropriate technologies for the Baja California Sur region, which latitude makes this region a large and isolated desert, so saving energy and water are a priority. Such technologies include rammed earth walls, which use local materials and have thermal properties that help control the home's internal temperature; the incorporation of a solar chimney which is a passive way of improving the natural ventilation; harvesting rainwater to be used for daily activities; processing gray water to use for irrigation; and finally, the use of solar panels to provide clean energy.

    "We want to replicate this model on several desert locations worldwide where entrepreneurs seek to maintain places where nature still remains dominant," says Hector.

    Anica started a crowdfunding campaign in RocketHub to fund the construction of the first prototype. To learn more or support their project you can look for them on Facebook as Anica, Twitter as ( @ ) anicabaja and on their website www.anicabaja.com
