Sustainable development goes hand in hand with sustainable infrastructure. Blue Planet believes growing communities to the capacity they can sustain them selves on the land AS IT IS and not past this point will not only ensure viability of the community for future generations but prohibit any negative impact of growing beyond the land capabilities on neighboring communities.
Part of providing a solid foundation for sustainable growth, is incorporating carbon capturing systems for the increase in carbon output caused by increased population and the necessary development to support that population. Blue Planet uses several systems to maximize carbon capture. One of those systems are Willow Farms. By providing a treatment system for waste water that allows for the growth and maintenance of a Willow tree farm in turn captures a significant amount of treated water, and ultimately carbon. Willow trees also provide biomass used for energy within the community.
