Signaling a level of intention ahead of its peers Envision is an established pivot for environmentalists in festival culture, aspiring for harmony with nature in Costa Rica and abroad. To this end, numerous initiatives are woven throughout the fabric of the culture at the event, designed to nourish the local communities while protecting the jungles of the region. In an effort to leave a positive footprint, Envision hosts a reforesting program which has planted more than 12,000 trees over the last 7 years. To protect the environment and cut down on waste, ALL single-use plastics and outside alcohol are banned, while vendors serving foods onsite pledge to uphold Envision's commitment to buy locally grown produce for an authentic dining experience that can't be found anywhere else in the world.

Additionally, they offer a dishware rental program and encourage a BYO mentality to re-purpose and reuse, with quick clean up stations conveniently located throughout the venue. All the clothing and craft products sold in the market are fashioned by local and international artists with a net positive impact on the environment. Stages and structures are made the local Tico way, almost entirely with eco-friendly materials harvested from the nearby jungle, in a process they've dubbed 'Jungle-Tek'. Through these efforts and more, Envision upholds an ethos of regenerative celebration that continues to inform everything they do, from what foods are included in a dining experience to which musical story is told on the lineup.
