Joint Eco-Venture: 3EcoBees

3EcoBees.com is a joint venture between us and Ambiendura, an environmental consultancy, that began a few months ago, and has now started taking on a life of its own.

The project is a collaboration aimed at developing and promoting green and sustainable projects in the region of the Algarve and hopefully across the country, for both tourists and locals in the area of eco-tourism, eco-investments and eco-lifestyle.

The project started with talks about how great it would be to have a green region, to suddenly everything sprouting like wild fire.

We will be introducing the project at the Feira Nacional de Parques Naturais e Ambiente in Olhão, held from July 24th to 27th. We’re looking to work with businesses actively engaged in developing green, sustainable products and services in the Algarve and Portugal.

We’re also quite conscious of greenwashing and that is not our intention, our goal to encourage businesses to be green and help them connect to where they can get more information and support. In addition, 3EcoBees, will help promote those that are already green, and support investments both from national and international sources to continue developing sustainable projects in Portugal. So if you’re in one of those areas, we would love to hear from you.

In preparation for the fair, we got working on our logo, icon, blog and holding page. We’re all working hard get the project ready, so for now the 3ecobees website is on hold, until our designer and doodler extraordinaire can take time away from other client projects. In the meantime, I took my marketing hat off and put on my web design cap, to fill in.

We have to say a big ‘THANK YOU’ to all the companies that are working with us and sending their information and products, and a special thanks to the 3EcoBees intern, Susanna a.k.a. “HelperBee”, for all her hard work so far. She’s been great and we couldn’t have gotten organized in time without her help – thanks Susanna!

    Hi,

    I am very interested in setting up an eco-tourism project in the algarve where people can stay affordably and live the dream in a beautiful country but am not sure where to start exactly. can you help? I have been looking at property for a while and am not sure whether to just buy land due to my budget. do you know the procedures for this type of thing once I have found a property i.e. would I get a grant upfront?

    Many thanks,
    Gina
