Our Story

Eco-Spotlight is a digital publication celebrating sustainable solutions. We publish a new story on changemakers working towards a better, greener world, every week.

Our Story

Eco-Spotlight was created out of our co-founders’ former podcast ‘2 Minutes 2 Midnight – A global podcast for a global problem’ in fall 2019. After half a year of successful podcasting – 2 Minutes 2 Midnight was shortlisted for the PRX and google Podcast Creators Program – they realised that they wanted to focus on solution-based journalism surrounding environmental and especially climate-related topics. In September 2020, they founded Eco-Spotlight.com.

Eco-Spotlight celebrates sustainable solutions. The publication focuses on people, ideas and companies that are working towards positive environmental change. The idea is to find creative solutions for a human-made problem and talk to people who show us how we can tackle the climate catastrophe.
More and more people believe that it is too late to make positive and meaningful change to the environment. We want to challenge that. With Eco-Spotlight, we wish to bring stories of green solutions and innovation to the forefront and remind the world – without hope, there is no future.

Our Vision

There can never be action without hope. So, we’re here to help fuel your hope for a better tomorrow by bringing to you changemakers who know that the ongoing climate and ecological crisis can be averted with prompt, climate-smart action. Our ultimate hope is to inspire you, our reader, to take action in small 
and big ways. 

We collaborate with White Print, India’s first English lifestyle magazine in braille to make climate solutions more accessible to a wider audience.

However, there is still hope and therefore it is important to report solutions through the lens of sustainability, solutions and eco-friendly living.
