ecologicNYC is a concept for a subscription-based newsletter and news app for the New Yorker passionate about sustainable city living.


The contemporary app presents news, opinion articles, and an interactive events-listing platform. Readers have the option to scroll through the app or can access a menu bar for more selective browsing. The app also offers the capacity to save and share articles and events.
