‘Ecoforyou is aiming to be a 100% carbon neutral publication’

The planned launch of a new ethical environmental online magazine was announced today.

Ecoforyou.co.uk will be free to readers offering environmental news, features, interviews and lifestyle tips. The interactive site will include live-links, video, audio and a ‘digital page turn format’, powered by YUDU and hosted by Planet Ink Ltd.

Without a print edition, ecoforyou is aiming to be a ‘100% carbon neutral publication’. The platform, YUDU, advertises itself as a carbon neutral company, off-setting its emissions by donating money to a carbon management company.

The site is relying on marketing through social networks with readers encouraged to use ‘forward to a friend’ buttons.

“We hope that ecoforyou will not only appeal to individual readers but businesses campaigners and industry leaders too,” said founding director, Gerry Cassidy, in a press release.

“They can easily email ecoforyou to their clients, colleagues and workforce and maintain their green credentials, without having to go to the additional expense of their publication.”

Ecoforyou will is not the only digital offering promoting green issues, the BBC already has a well established site, bbc.green.com.

Other eco websites include:

http://www.bbcgreen.com – lifestyle green living.

http://www.ecorazzi.com/ – offers a mixture of celebrity gossip and environmental issues.

http://www.treehugger.com/ – ‘strives to be a one-stop shop for green news, solutions, and product information.’

http://www.ecogeek.org/ – publishes stories daily about innovations that are saving the planet.

Congratulations to the folks over at Ecoforyou on a compelling publication for a compelling cause. We look forward to great content in the future!
