Rev3 Costa Rica has partnered with Rainforest Alliance to bring you our very first sustainable event! We are extremely excited to be working with this international leader on environmental issues.

Rainforest Alliance has over 21 years of experience conserving biodiversity, encouraging sustainable livelihoods and reforming business practice and consumer habits. More specifically, we will be working closely with the Rainforest Alliance Sustainable Tourism division where travelers can utilize savvy tools such as sustainabletrip.org.  Please go to http://www.rainforest-alliance.org/multimedia/tourism-greenwave to learn more about Rainforest Alliance Sustainable Tourism.

Rev3 Costa Rica will work closely with Rainforest Alliance to find solutions to curb our carbon footprint, reduce waste and educate athletes and their families on sustainable issues.  Rev3’s goal has always been to create change in the way athletes, families and spectators view and participate in triathlons.  By making sustainable choices and setting an example for future events, we continue to strive to meet those goals and provide a safe and healthy environment for all participants.

Green Your Trip

is an offset program that considers an average of a 2 week stay in Costa Rica (local transportantion and lodging) although the international flight is not considered. The client will sponsor a tree that will at least fix a CO2 ton, that is enough for his/her trip. Please visit the site below to offset your stay in Costa Rica.
