With temperatures soaring around the globe, people who live in urban jungles – thick with concrete rather than trees – are feeling the heat more than ever. Bearing this in mind, Forbes has highlighted innovative companies that are making positive changes to combat the impact of climate change. Crystal Lagoons® is one of those applauded by the media outlet for its sustainable technology.
With 80% of Americans living in cities, real estate developers have risen to the challenge of addressing the problem with sustainable alternatives to conventional air-conditioning and other amenities that can help combat the pressures on energy resources and productivity. One of the projects that Forbes has commended is Solé Mia, Crystal Lagoons latest amenity to open in South Florida.
“A hop, skip and a jump away in South Florida, Crystal Lagoons has created an eco-friendly lagoon at Solé Mia that people can splash around in during hot summers,” reads the article that stresses on the multinational’s innovative water amenities of unlimited size.
“The seven-acre lagoon uses 50 percent less water than that needed by a park of the same size, 100 times less chemicals than swimming pools and 50 times less energy than conventional filtration systems,” it continues.
It is the first man-made, crystalline, swimmable lagoon in South Florida, according to Richard LeFrak, Chairman and CEO of LeFrak, which offers exclusive access to residents at the Shoreline, which is anchored by the clear turquoise lagoon.
Crystal Lagoons is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size clear water lagoons at very low costs.
