The word "eco" comes from the ancient Greek word 'oikos' meaning house, or the Latin 'oeco' meaning household. Mostly used as a prefix, it is added to an existing word to create another word with new meaning, mostly related to ecology. For example, eco-system, eco-tourism, eco-label etc, suggesting that a product is less damaging to the environment.
Ecology is the study of the detrimental affects of modern civilization on the environment, with a view toward prevention or reversal through conservation.
So what does environmentally or eco-friendly mean?
How we live our life affects our environment. To us, being environmentally or eco- friendly or eco-conscious means not wasting precious resources and choosing goods and services considered to have a lower impact on the environment. And to Reduce, Re-use and Recycle wherever possible!
