what: EnviroLink is a non-profit organisation... a grassroots online community that unites hundreds of organisations and volunteers around the world with millions of people in more than 150 countries. EnviroLink is run primarily by dedicated volunteers. EnviroLink is dedicated to providing comprehensive, up-to-date environmental information and news.

the story: the EnviroLink Network was created in 1991 by Josh Knauer, while he was a first-year student at Carnegie Mellon University. Since that time, EnviroLink has grown from a simple mailing list of 20 student activists to become one of the world's largest environmental information clearinghouses.

mission: at EnviroLink they are committed to promoting a sustainable society by connecting individuals and organisations through communications technologies. They recognise that our technologies are just tools, and that the solutions to our ecological challenges lie within our communities and their connection to the Earth itself. EnviroLink does not take positions on any specific environmental issues; it exists solely to act as a clearinghouse on the Internet for the environmental community, which is incredibly diverse in its views.

services: in addition to being an information resource, EnviroLink provides non-profit organisations in the environmental and animal rights communities with free internet services. The EnviroLink Network's EnviroWeb program offers website and domain name hosting, automated mailing lists, interactive bulletin boards and e-mail accounts free of charge to non-profit organisations within the environmental and animal rights communities.

funding: EnviroLink is supported by the generosity of many environmentally conscious individuals and organisations. Donations are greatly appreciated -- they have been EnviroLink's longest continuous form of financial support and have allowed EnviroLink to continue operating since 1991: “Without generous support we have received from our users, we would not have been able to offer free internet services for so many years.” Escalating costs may force them to implement a sliding-scale fee for these services in the future.
