Boost Sustainable Tourism

The development of sustainable tourism in Georgia is very important for EthicCapital. Tourism is generally increasing thanks to the state's support amongst others. It is necessary to support a gentle and environmentally friendly way of travelling in Georgia's rich nature.

Credit to Support Organic Regional Agriculture

The indicators to assess fruit and vegetables quality have obviously changed in Georgia. In addition to taste and looks, the origin and the cultivation method of agricultural produce gain more and more importance for consumers.

While local produce has traditionally been preferred, nowadays imported goods represent a big part on Georgia's market.

Most people are aware of the intensive use of chemical fertilizers and herbicides also in Georgia. Many of these substances are already forbidden in Central European countries.

That is why supporting every impulse towards natural and regional agriculture in Georgia is so important.

With the credit our member will arrange a greenhouse and grow organic tomatoes and cucumbers.

We wish fertile success!
