I am a retired librarian with a great interest in environmental sustainability. I hold this organization in very high regard because I know Shaun Paul, the founder and head, spends a lot of his time implementing EcoLogic's mission, serving local communities and really knowing the people who benefit from the sustainability work they do. This is a small organization with high integrity and great local effectiveness.
