Eco Links


ECO LINKS – linking up the world with common concerns

reaching out

reaching out to communities





List of all kinds of useful links: if you have any ‘green’ links or low tech solutions / inventions you would like to add, please contact me to add to this page.

Are you / your school / your group / involved in a project? Please let me know, I’d love to post it on this site.

Do you have a link to healthcare, natural remedies, herbs etc? Please contact me. (not just promoting someone’s product – but advice)

The idea behind this page & site is to link & educate the global community at all levels to all things green, eco-sustainable and renewable and to raise awareness. From the poor villager to the academic, it’s about reaching out to one and all, for one and all.

Some of the groups listed below may crossover from one subject to the next i.e. water & toilets may be in the same group/link/report.

I have no affiliation to any of these linksthey are just links I have gathered over the years; if you’re a newbie they should give you a kick-start into the world of ecosan res, green construction, permaculture, groups, NGO’s and more : )

If you found this to be useful, informative, interesting … please blast it out to all your contacts and Facebook, Twitter etc etc – thanks

Educating & pointing people towards a greener, cleaner world.

If you know something I don’t know then please let me know; the only thing I really know is that there’s a lot that I don’t know.
