Sustainable living for the perfectly imperfect eco-warrior

When it comes to sustainability, things like public transit and avoiding unneccesary shopping are number one. But, when those options aren’t realistic (or that sale is just too good to pass up), there’s Econus.

How it works

Our philosophy

Creating the change you want to see in the world isn’t always about you.

You can buy green. You can recycle your paper, plastics and glass. You can do everything you’re supposed to do.


But when the majority of your recycled plastics are worth more burned into the air than as a new pair of Nike Space Hippie’s (Nike’s recycled shoe) and discreet ‘green’ marketing gimmicks are rewarded for bamboozling us at the register, it’s the system that needs to change.

With a community of eco-warriors and the theory of externalities, this is how we can do it!

Environmental & Societal Impact of externalities

From climate change to healthcare, the impacts from consumption vary widely

About us

According to a 2017 study, just 100 companies are responsible for 71% of emissions worldwide.

If so few, albeit large, organizations are responsible for so much of the damage we live with today, what can an individual do to make a meaningful impact?
