For the last few months, Muhammad Saleem and Hank Green have been working on a little project that would allow people to share environmental news in a social media setting. The result is a fabulous site called EcoURLs.com and contains selected content by top envirobloggers……..

“Every story at EcoURLs is linked to other social news sites, so you can digg, reddit, stumble, and bookmark at delicious all from one place in a matter of seconds. Thus, if you like the content, you can help promote it at all of these places, and ensure that it gets the traffic it deserves.”

Topics include: science, technology, transportation, nature, politics, entertainment, recycling, food and business. And while there are many different blogs that deal with each of these topics individually, EcoURLs brings them all together for easy promotion and navigation.

Since EcoURLs is still in beta, Ecogeek would love for you to check it out and let them know what you think of the new site. Personally, I think it’s a great idea. Anything that provides a one stop shop for all things Earth is okay by me!

    Very unique, I like it. A one stop shop as you say, but they have serious promotional duties ahead to bring attention to all the various blogs around the net that cover such issues :)

    A good cause, but it’s going to be hard to compete with Hugg & Care2. Good luck to Saleem.

    Just an update - I signed up for ecourl and they say “Ecourls is still in beta testing, and so not all users are allowed to submit news. If you would like to be considered as a beta tester, please email support@ecourls.com

    Thanks for the information on this. I have checked out a couple of green news sites (FiveLimes, Hugg) and I am checking this out now. Looks like a lot of “recycled” Digg and Reddit content?
