Eco Brooklyn is a proud member of, which is a great play on “Idea List” and “Idealist”.

In their own words “Idealist is a project of Action Without Borders, a nonprofit organization founded in 1995 with offices in the United States and Argentina. Idealist is an interactive site where people and organizations can exchange resources and ideas, locate opportunities and supporters, and take steps toward building a world where all people can lead free and dignified lives.”

Being part of groups like this is an honor and a political statement. The group was partly founded by people who endured one of the worst dictatorial regimes in history (in Argentina). During that time to belong to a group like would be grounds to disappear overnight and die under torture.

This kind of group is like Facebook or MySpace with a conscience. It helps greatly when educating oneself in how other people are building green and sustainably.
