.eco domain name campaign
August 6th, 2009Posted by: Theo Nicolakis
If you haven’t seen or heard, Al Gore, the Sierra Club, Surfrider, and other environmental groups are planning on initiating a campaign to allow for web site addresses to end in .eco. So, just like you have www.cnn.com, www.goarch.org we could have www.goarch.eco. The goal of the campaign is to have 50% of the proceeds donated to environmental causes targeted towards research, education, and action.
I haven’t seen specifically what will qualify someone or something to receive portions of these proceeds, so that could be a touchy subject.
Regardless, given our Church’s emphasis on ecological awareness and the international environmental symposia held over the past eight years, this might turn out to be a pretty neat idea. Because it’s a domain name, would be one’s choice to support or not support this. You can read more about this proposal here.
