Hey there, I just want to say thank you so much for creating this site. Last year I was a the brink of ending everything as my climate anxiety became so overbearing that I was suffocating to the point I wouldn’t want to go outside because no matter what I did, I hurt the planet and felt I had no hope for the future. I have always been a climate activist but always felt I could do nothing.

I am now in my final year of teaching and always show my students your sight every morning to show there are some amazing things happening. Honestly, you saved my life, and you have no idea how much of a big help you are being. It’s not so bad anymore where I feel like there is hope; thanks so much!

Ka Pai Jessie 🙂

As a young 16 year-old who will most likely witness the effects of climate change in the future, my eco-anxiety is through the roof. I’ve read many negative news articles about the subject and it has taken a toll on me. I think about it every day and it really brings me down. That’s why I thank you for spreading all this positivity and hope. We really need it.

Thank you so much for this site. Hope that there ARE people out there making a difference is what keeps the fight alive for a planet we can all live in.

I really want to thank you with helping me dealing with my anxiety! It started last august with full-on panic attacks about the environment and I seriously lost all hope and trust in humanity…
But your website and instagram account gave me some trust and hope back…I still battle with the anxiety but your website pulled me through the worst of it! Thank you very much! ❤

Thanks, Happy Eco News. Your article got me using SearchScene and it’s giving great search results. Also, like the design — and how nice to help reputable charities instead of tax-avoiding billionaires!

Hey guys,

Wanted to thank you for the awesome work you do with this blog! Like a lot of young people, I often experience intense climate anxiety and your page really helps to relax me and put a positive spin on things. 

Thanks again and keep up the great work! 🙂

I just wanted to say thank you for your website/Facebook page. When everything in the news seems hopeless it is very isolating and depressing. Your page shows that millions of people care and are using their creativity, ingenuity, and research to help. Climate anxiety is something that I really struggle with, but your page has helped give me a bit of hope and perspective, showing that people care and that positive change can happen. So thank you

Great text ! Good ideas !! Funny dog !!! Hope it will work out !!!!



September 3, 2021

Thank you for Happy Eco News.  I often feel terrified and hopeless about the future.  Your site’s articles give me some hope.



August 16, 2021

Hello there,

I really appreciate your weekly newsletter! I first heard about you on a David Suzuki call a year or so ago. 

Recently, I created a short film called, Perseverance. It’s about our journey through Covid and the attitudes we can take when faced with future challenges whether personal or environmental. 

You might like to see it and share it with your readers. All of the films I shoot are based in nature and focus on personal growth, which I feel is at the heart of climate change. 

Perseverance- A Pandemic and a Search for Justice.

Thank you for what you do!

I really like to know about news conservations organizations around the world and sounds like this Hurakaan Eco-Táctica got my attention, principally in countries like Mexico with so many biodiversity and nature, I will look up for more and see how can I help.



July 20, 2021

This makes me warm inside, I feel that same deep emotion, we all do even if it it hasn’t hit us yet or our personalities of feelings deny it.

Mother Nature is our home it created us, it’s begging for our help.

I have a hope, slowly.

There are enough good people who feel this internal burning we won’t lie down without a fight.



July 20, 2021

Beautiful connections with nature. Thanks for helping others see simplistic living is so available. One just has to live in that authenticity.



July 19, 2021

Thanks for sharing! So inspiring and I really hope that we together can create awareness for many many others. 🙂



July 18, 2021

Loved reading this newsletter – beautiful – i’m sure you have a book in you 🙂 

hope all is well at your end. all is blessed over here.

Thank you for writing this. And a thank you to brother Bob who filmed the video. As I understand it, there has been a two year moratorium on logging at Whispering Creek headwaters. I believe me need more certainty that it will not be logged in future. And all other locations that contribute to the beauty and ecology that is Howe Sound.

No suggestions or questions, just a big thank you for what you do from France 🙂 We need more people like you !

June 29, 2021

Very nicely put together taking into account various aspects of environment related issues . Definitely get you thinking!

Keep up the good work.



May 24, 2021

Wow, what brilliant minds these women have. All the best to them and the wonderful things they will do in this world.



May 24, 2021

You put into words how earth day feels!

It IS every day.

It is so much more than picking up garbage around you for one day 😞

It IS standing up to the systems which destroy healthy life in our planet.

Thanks for stepping it up with your realistic honest piece! Cheers, Grant.



February 24, 2021

You have my full support.

J’espère que tout cela, ce nouveau projet t’amènera loin … en avant…

Take care, keep in touch !



February 11, 2021


Big fan of your website, I’ve been visiting it regularly for the last year or so. It’s been a great help in dealing with my anxiety problems. 

I found this article about my home state’s work to revive our oyster reefs, bringing along with it a surge in biodiversity. 




January 25, 2021

Thank you so much for supporting these causes where those who rely on it for its resources do not or should a lot better. Thank you.



January 9, 2021

thank you!

wowzer, you do so much! 

yes, please pace yourself and remember self care is as important as all the good works we extend into the world. 

i will be in touch soon – and i appreciate your support – thank you!

Thank you so much for running this site.

There’s so much negativity in the news, especially since the rise of endless news feeds and ‘doomscrolling’. But to drive the change the world needs you can’t rely on fear alone, you need something to hope for.

The weekly blog post, in particular, is a part of the week I always look forward to.

Personally, I’m most excited about the continually plummeting costs of renewable energy given that, as we’ve seen in places where the government might not prioritize reducing emissions, you can’t fight economics. The argument of “expensive clean energy” is crumbling and will soon be flipped on its head.

I think we’ll soon see the same for EVs.

Hopefully, you’ll keep finding good news for us in 2021 🙂



December 28, 2020

Thanks Grant.

Appreciate your fact finding.

And for some reason, I actually ‘ believe’

Your statistics.

Gray Panthers in Maine are turning into GREEN Panthers.

Excellent news: there is eco- hope !



December 7, 2020

Thank you 🙏🏼

Great editorial.  Getting harder to stay happy, isn’t it?



November 5, 2020

Following your inner guide. Good for you and for the world 2:)



October 26, 2020

Thank you for this. Good news leads to hope. And hope leads to solutions. In a world drowning in bad news, good news is like an endangered species, and we need to save it. Thanks for your part. I share it with my family and friends in person, or by text. That’s perhaps a smaller than social media, but I stay away from that. In the end, perhaps it’s more powerful. It is for me.



October 26, 2020

I wanted to leave you a note of thanks.

I discovered your site about a year ago and I now visit every morning to get my little fix of hope. There is no end of doom and gloom available out there, but I love coming here for a 180 degree turn in perspective to see instead positive news of what is being done and being planned for the future by like minded people and individuals not willing to let the scale of problems stop them from taking steps forward. Your site is a wonderful place to glimpse a brighter future with projects and changes already in motion. Seeing that success is the best possible advert for change.

Thank you,

Is Grant’s company on the NYSE? An I.P.O. ?

I would like to invest:)



June 23, 2020

Hi Grant,

In case no one’s told you lately….you are a gem of light during these strange times.

I share Happy Eco News in my church’s newsletter every Sunday (I’m on the Green Sanctuary team). I am only focusing on good news these days. You are my main source!

Of course I include local good eco-news as well. Today I was able to include the good news regarding one of the largest power plants in Georgia, Georgia Power’s Plant Scherer. The local Altamaha Riverkeepers have tested the water and found coal ash poisons and have managed to fight back and “may” get funding from the state to have the coal ash pits lined.

I just wanted to give you some good eco-news back.

Mostly: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for the work you are doing!



June 16, 2020

​​Hi Grant

As always, I deeply appreciate you hosting this site and providing hope, positivism, progress and information.

How can we help support you?




May 26, 2020

Always great to see these weekly recaps and I feel it’s getting harder to choose with so many good and progressive actions being taken.

Thanks once again for putting this all together



May 26, 2020

Firstly, Thank you for all your hard work bringing this positive information to us. Back in the winter the scale of the Climate emergency hit me and I was hunting up websites for positive environmental news, your website was about the only website centred around this subject that I could read without any anxiety. Secondly, I can only say one thing. YAY!!!! It was the one of the most stupid thing done by Ontario’s government! So glad it got overturned!



May 18, 2020

I make it a point to visit your website DAILY. It sets me up for a positive day. Keep on keeping on.



May 4, 2020

Thank you for all the stories, hope and progress you share.



May 4, 2020

Thank you so much for your positivity! I knew happy ecological news was there and I appreciate you finding it and telling us about it. That’s fantastic!



March 17, 2020

Thank you thank you thank you.

I write my congregations 3 R’s newsletter and I always include information from Happy Eco

We have just earned the green sanctuary certification from Georgia Interfaith Power & Lights g.i.p.l. and I honestly feel your good news has kept us motivated!



February 2, 2020

love your website – I’m about to link it to my clients database so hopefully that generates some traffic to you!!

one possible suggestion to add, perhaps have a tab on what we can all collectively do as individuals to help the environment

keep up the great work!



January 7, 2020

It’s so good to get positive news about the environment from this site. Especially because we are reeling from unprecedented bush fires in Australia caused clearly by global warming.



January 6, 2020

I am so happy for you all. As I can see, you two are doing good and it makes me happy.



January 2, 2020

Love your page and what you write. I have eco-anxiety and when I feel down or stressed this is where I go. It feels good to have good news because not everything needs to look grim when we think about the future. We often see way too many bad news and I feel like it discourages people. Continue the good work and I look forward reading even more good news in 2020.



December 18, 2019

Thank goodness for the good eco and climate news you bring.

Well done.

From a concerned Grandpa.



September 26, 2019

I am so desperate to get some positive climate news, thank you for compiling and sharing what you find. You’re helping me to keep on trying against insurmountable odds.



August 6, 2019

This made my day, efforts like these will change our planet and help us tackle the fight against climate change



April 29, 2019

Plastic pollution is on its worst and we really need to do something to save our environment from dying. More power to you!


February 20, 2019

Thank you so mucj for your work to help keep us informed and motivated. I too want to leave the earth better than i found it.
