About Happy Eco News

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.

In between all the doomsday articles online are a few that are actually very positive. 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 (HappyEcoNews.com) 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.

Our goal with Patreon is to make Happy Eco News self sufficient and hire more part time staff. To do that, we require 1000 patrons at an average of $10 per month. All revenue beyond the amount needed to run the site will be distributed to grass-roots type environmental organizations and a scholarship program to support youth activists.

$40.09 of $500 per month
When Happy Eco News reaches $500 per month, we will begin a monthly video conference that will allow our patrons to connect with the HEN staff and each other in a safe, collaborative space.
