  • "Eco is the newspaper of the green movement. It is a not-for-profit company, and is not politically aligned. Formerly appearing in traditional paper format as "Green News" in 1990, Eco has been online since 2005. Any profits will be distributed to charities including Greenpeace, Oxfam, The Worldwide Fund for Nature, Cool Earth, and Friends of the Earth.

    The advantage of an online newspaper for the green movement is that while there is some environmental impact, the computers involved in the paper's production and readership are in use anyway, there is no paper used, and limited pollution from transporting the product, over and above that already occurring from the use of computers.

    With your support we will build a green newspaper to be proud of, that will offer news, inspiration, and employment opportunities."
