A beautiful and unique island like Bonaire has to be cherished, which is why we thought that our car rental company should operate as sustainably as possible. No sooner said than done. Today, all our electricity is solar-generated, disposable plastic has been eliminated from our office and we wash our cars with filtered rainwater. This is how we did it:
We are extremely proud to be the only car rental company on Bonaire that operates entirely on solar power. Well, extremely proud... we sincerely hope that all the others will follow our example. The sun shines all day long on Bonaire, so why shouldn’t we use it? We have, in any case, been using solar power since 2017 and we shall continue to do so into the future. The roofs of our buildings have a total of 440 solar panels. You can count them if you like.
Plastic litter: yuck! If there’s one thing that annoys us diving enthusiasts, it’s the plastic soup in the sea. We have said goodbye and good riddance to ‘single use’ plastic like disposable cutlery, cups and bottles. Instead, we use biodegradable ‘ecocups’ made from corn and we store tap water in jugs. Every little helps!
It doesn’t rain much on Bonaire, but when it pours down, we take as much advantage of it as we can. We store rainwater in barrels, filter it ourselves and then use it to wash our cars. Working sustainably in this way has cut our water consumption by no less than 60%. We call it being smart with nature.
