The new way of living in harmony with nature. Sustainable living on Bonaire. It is possible at Pure36. In this all new concept called L.I.F.E (Living Intelligently with Food and Energy) we will show how it is possible to live as a community together with beautiful mother Nature and modern architecture.


Pure36 does not have any electricity grid, so your home will need a fully Off-the-Grid battery based solar system, meaning you will never see another electricity bill again!
More information on what companies you may choose to use for such a solar system is available from our sales department.


At Pure36 we encourage an edible garden design. As opposed to widely applied ornamental gardens in most parts of the world, Pure36 would like you to make practical use of the space, water, energy and expenses that are associated with gardens. You can do this by planting edible vegetation, such as wide variety of fruit trees and other edible or fruit bearing plants.


There is little rainfall on Bonaire and the production of clean drinking water is relatively expensive. This makes water management an essential part of sustainable living practices, especially in these dry arid climates.


At Pure36 rainwater is encouraged to be diverted from the roofs and terraces to the highest point possible on each lot. From there, the rainwater can be carefully redirected from tree to tree throughout the food forest of each lot, before it finds its way into the rainwater catchment dams.


At Pure36 grey water is encouraged to be diverted from the showers and hand basins to larger fruit trees. We encourage the use of environmentally friendly soaps to be used to prevent adding toxic substances to the soil, but instead have the environmentally friendly soaps serve as a fertilizer for the garden.


At Pure36 black water is captured septic tanks. The black water can be removed by septic  trucks companies, that should bring the black water to Bonaire’s water purification plant.


At Pure36 the owners are encouraged to make use of the sun to heat up their water for showering and washing, through the use of solar water boilers.


One of the extra elements that Pure36 home owners encouraged to add to their home is a rainwater catchment tank.


One of the extra elements that Pure36 owners are encouraged to add to their home is a water filter. Filtering will purify the drinking water, which increases the quality.

“To become a successful entrepreneur you must have a high self imposed standard and you must stick to it. This is exactly what I learned from Roald Boom, founder of Bona Bista Island Estate. I admire his strong business sense and drive to demonstrate that a sustainable way of life is possible on the island of Bonaire.”

Danilo Christiaan, Manager Mangazina di Rei
