EcoWatch, a cutting edge environmental news service, today announced its partnership with RebelMouse to enhance and accelerate its ability to share content to a broad audience.

“Using the RebelMouse platform, EcoWatch will become a stronger voice for grassroots environmentalism,” said Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., President of Waterkeeper Alliance. “EcoWatch’s mission is rooted in the assumption that democracy and a wholesome, safe environment are intertwined.”
 
EcoWatch in partnership with Waterkeeper Alliance—a global environmental movement uniting more than 200 Waterkeeper organizations around the world—is celebrating its one-year anniversary of servicing more than 1,000 grassroots environmental organizations, activists and community leaders worldwide on EcoWatch.org.
 
EcoWatch is the result of more than two decades of passion and commitment to publishing environmental news for Founder and Editor Stefanie Penn Spear who works to educate and mobilize millions of people to engage in democracy to protect human health and the environment. “My goal is to motivate individuals to become active in their community by adopting and promoting sustainable practices, and supporting strong environmental policy,” said Spear. “EcoWatch helps people make the connection between how they spend their daily lives and dollars, and its impact on the health of their family, friends and planet.”
 
EcoWatch unites the voices of the grassroots environmental movement by providing a venue for news pertaining to water, air, food, energy and biodiversity, and showcases the insights of world-renowned environmental leaders. EcoWatch exposes the corporations that are avariciously exploiting natural resources and putting profits before human health and the environment, and highlights solution-based approaches to create a sustainable world.
 
The shore of the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland, Ohio, is the perfect home for this blossoming news service, as the notorious 1969 burning of the river ignited the modern-day environmental movement and inspired the passage of the 40-year-old Clean Water Act.
