What is ‘Pay What You Want'(PWYW) all about?

We’ve chosen not to clog up our site with 3rd party advertising over which we have limited control. However, like any website of this nature, we have costs to cover. We believe that the businesses who chose list on EcoFind embrace an enlightened approach to the economics of giving and receiving.

The PWYW option for Basic listings provides an opportunity for those businesses with a modest budget to support the work we promoting them and raising awareness about sustainability in NZ.
