Sustainable Community Cut Off From the World Almost 40 Years Ago

While a group cut off from the world for forty years might sound like a cargo cult in these environmentally minded folks live this way on purpose and with purpose. They cut themselves off from technology and the modern world in an effort to live green and for the most part it’s working.

It sounds like something out of a fairy tale or a children’s book, a community deep in the wild jungle of Colombia, cut off from society almost 40 years ago. Then, after the rest of the world turned their back on them, they suddenly take great interest as it turns out this community has found something the rest of the world needs. Energy. And not just a new supply source but something even better. They’ve figured out how to be sustainable without outside influence or resources.
