Welcome to our ECO forum...

... but what is Eco?


The word eco comes from the ancient Greek word 'oikos' meaning house, or the Latin 'oeco' meaning household. Today, this is mostly used as a 'prefix' by adding it to the front of 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.
