Costa Rica Runs On Green Energy For Record Breaking 300 Days

By Aimee Lutkin

In addition to being a gorgeous tropical paradise and beloved tourist destination, Costa Rica is putting itself on the map with huge steps towards becoming as environmentally conscious as possible. 

The country has been working to grow its forest cover, it has banned single use plastic, and as of now, they've run almost entirely on renewable energy for 300 days.

EcoWatch reports that the Costa Rican Institute of Electricity (ICE) is celebrating their accomplishment, citing numbers provided by the National Center for Energy Control which say that things have been operating on almost 100 percent renewable power.
