Happy Eco News was founded in January of 2018 as a personal project to help me find some nuggets of positivity in the vast sea of unpleasant environmental news stories.
As a moderate environmentalist, I try to stay abreast of the things that matter to me but it began to feel very overwhelming; like all the news was bad. It didn’t make sense to me though, I work in clean technology and I know many other companies and individuals that are also doing good things.
I found that when I really started looking, I could see in between all the doomsday articles and posts, were a few that were actually very positive. And so I started saving them with the intention of sharing with friends to let them know that there is some good news.
As it goes, one thing leads to the next. I registered a URL and designed a website with the idea of sharing it with other like minded, somewhat beaten down environmentalists. Those among us who need a boost.
So that brings us to now. I am posting to the site 5 times every day and providing a top 5 list of the best stories to those who subscribe to the Happy Eco News. It is my sincere hope that in the not too distant future the balance will shift and there will be more positive stories than negative. Maybe then I will stop.
Until then, we have Happy Eco News.
