Mirlo Positive Nature is a local social enterprise in Tenerife which empowers concerned individuals who want to leave a positive footprint on the planet. Together, through an on-line community, we fund environmental projects, get our hands dirty planting trees, and experience the joy of implementing environmental solutions that are beneficial to the local economy.

How it works
1. Engaged individuals put forward an idea for an environmental project e.g. reforesting the Corona Forestal woodland.
2. The Mirlo team assesses the proposal and, with local actors, devises a solution.
3. Through Mirlo’s on-line presence, we use crowdfunding to raise funds for the project.
4. We ask people to collaborate, local businesses to spread the word and get involved.

By turning local environmental concerns into action, Mirlo provides a model for community involvement and empowerment in natural resource management.
