We here at Find Energy Savings have decided to compile a list of our favourite eco bloggers and publish them for everyone to see. We have been scouring the web and came up with a list of our favourites so far, but now it is your turn to help add to our list. Now is your chance to tell us who we have missed out on before we ask you to decide who the “Ultimate Eco Blogger” is via a poll on this website at the beginning of June.
Whether being green is their area of expertise or if they’re just trying to do their bit to help the environment, we want to know about them. Even if it is your own blog, don’t be shy!
