Looking for ways to turn waste into value is paramount to our success as a species, and is what Toji Compost programs, recycling and up-cycling construction materials into furnishings and art.
Toji's team and guests are encouraged to both protect and learn from our surrounding ecosystem.
Conservation: TOJI and the surrounding community have 2 dedicated nature reserves for wildlife, biodiversity, and carbon capture.
Regenerative Agriculture: Our regenerative, organic food forest is helping to restore health to the soil, to our food, and to the people of our community.
· Reforestation: We plant native plants and trees throughout the property each year to offset the carbon of guest flights and to continue to further balance the human impact on natural resources within our community.
People, Planet, & Profit
We create small business models that lower the environmental impact and elevate the social impact of a company as a part of the business's profit strategy. This balance is paramount in all of our decisions as an ecotourism retreat center, and as a sustainable community.
Toji was thoughtfully designed to increase energy efficiencies and decrease water usage with rainwater capture and advanced water treatment plant systems for irrigation.
OG Capitalism is a set of principles for life and business that Toji's greater community is applying and evolving to be replicable by other sustainable developers and business owners in the future. These adaptable principles have been derived from the honed processes of natural ecosystems and the resilient teachings of the original forefathers of capitalism. Capitalism used to mimic nature much more than it does today, with mom and pop shops, appreciating the need to minimize waste, etc.
OG Capitalism hopes to guide our community development to serve as a replicable model of a more sustainable and less wasteful approach to capitalism.
A Focus on
TOJI and the surrounding community have 2 dedicated nature reserves for wildlife, biodiversity, and carbon capture.
Toji tries to implement a regenerative mindset in all of our actions. Regenerating and restoring the ecosystem to it's natural state is a way to not just minimize human impact, but actually reverse it.
Our regenerative, organic food forest is a great example of this philosophy. By reintroducing a diverse set of species to the land, our food forest is helping to restore health to the soil, to our food, and to the people of our community (while also sequestering more carbon into the soil!)
A portion of Toji's income from retreats goes to our reforestation efforts; both internal efforts on our property and via donations to the Maleku tribe. We plant native plants and trees throughout the property each year to offset the carbon of guest flights and to continue to further balance the human impact on natural resources within our community.
Keeping it Human
Quality of Life
Quality of life is paramount for our employees and all community members. Creating a healthier, more rewarding, and more meaningful environment for all living and working in the community is a critical to genuine sustainable development.
Toji provides a wide array of continuing studies and engagement programs for our employees and community members. Everything from yoga, CPR and first aid classes, educational nature hikes, and finance classes provide opportunities for personal growth and development outside of general work skills.
Toji and our team do our best to be stewards of the greater Parrita community. We have organized beach cleanups and have donated materials and workers to repair local schools Hard work toward a good cause helps connect us as humans and gives our team an opportunity to contribute to the things they care about most.
