Zelement Club prioritizes positive community contributions
Changing the existing state of things isn’t necessarily bad, but transforming a village into a city isn’t necessarily progress. Does the progress serve the community or humanity? From the perspective of whom? It may benefit some, but it may degrade the greater community and culture. And it may be difficult to see this in the moment. When we set up our Clubhouse in a foreign community, we desire to not add strain to the existing infrastructure.
Zelement Club prioritizes positive community contributions and minimizing negative impacts to a community. It is vital for us support community projects and wages. If there is an opportunity to create excess personal financial profit at the cost of the well-being of the local community we will forego the excess profit.
When we select a location for our ClubHouse we will use these operating principles as our guide:
• We will purchase food, goods, and services from locals rather than foreign companies when we have comparable choices
• We will not intentionally impede the ability of the locals to afford their current lifestyle.
• Rent from locals, rather than buying if buying will contribute to inflation and eventually an affordability crisis for the locals. For example, buying and developing land for appreciation well above what locals can afford is in opposition to our beliefs as individuals and as a company.
So come be a part of something good in this world!
