More about us:
An increasing number of teachers, schools, and other educators, including libraries, plus towns and town officials as well as doctors, nurses, legislators and others interested in public health issues are finding CT Environmental Headlines a useful service.
There are many articles local environmentalists don’t see but would like to see if they had somewhere they could go to see them. Unless you are a subscriber or a regular visitor to all the newspapers and news sources in Connecticut and beyond, you won’t see the articles on CT Environmental Headlines anywhere else.
CT Environmental Headlines posts links to each day’s environmental news stories appearing in Connecticut newspapers. Additionally, readers are able to sign up for free e-mail updates that contain the content of the site. The e-mails are easily readable on the World Wide Web for those with slow connections.
An article in the Waterford Times reported on the Going Green Award that was presented to Waterford Public Schools on Nov. 15, 2008 by the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education and the Department of Environmental Protection.
If you are a teacher at a school in Connecticut, or if you are a librarian at a library in Connecticut, or if you are a Connecticut state senator or Connecticut state representative at the Capitol in Hartford, then you have a vested interested in the health and well being of your students, customers, and constituents. CT Environmental Headlines provides easy access to all the state’s news headlines published on the Internet.
CT Environmental Headlines also covers national stories of state importance. Employees at the Connecticut science centers including the The Mystic Aquarium and Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk also find the Headlines a useful service to keep abreast of things going on in the state’s environmental community.
Readers include environmental lawyers, members of the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection, the Connecticut legislature, environmental lawyers, lobbyists and anyone interested in environmental news in Connecticut, as well as national and international stories that affect the health of the air, land and water in Connecticut.
The blog depends on support from its readers, as well as organizations and companies who would benefit from advertising their products and/or services to environmentalists and an eco-friendly audience.
We’ve had great success with all of the ads that people and organizations have run on the blog.
The audience of environmental organizations, businesses, law firms, towns, libraries, colleges, universities, students, journalists, editors and others offers a specific audience for companies and organizations wishing to tell others about what they do, whether it’s an upcoming event or a new product.
CT Environmental Headlines will review your environmentally friendly product or do a write up about the services that you offer and send that information to environmentalists and others interested in the environment who visit the blog and/or receive our daily e-mail updates.
