-The EcoTrack was born immediately following Penguicon 6.0.  First, existing interest in eco-friendly practices continued growing and began showing up during that con.  As the amazing weekend came to a close, it was evident that a formal collaboration was necessary. ​ Sustainable computing and eco-friendly open sourcing started to creep in under the radar. ​ With a solid need for recycling, creating sustainable goods, and sharing the information,​ several committee members have collaborated to make this new track possible. ​ There was some debate on what to label the track, so as a compromise, Eco was the final decision. ​ The "​ECO"​ prefix literally means "​concerned with living things in relation to their environment." ​ Each track was given an opportunity to share ways to have their own subjects Go Green! ​ The EcoGeeks support earth friendly motives and hope to share those motives with interested con-goers.  ​ 
- 
-With the help of many committee members, businesses and public supporters, the EcoGeeks focused on each area of the convention. ​ The track has supported a Wellness Station in the past with complimentary massage and other professional services that provide a holistic view of health. ​ There is hope to bring back the Wellness Station at future conventions.  ​ 
- 
-EcoGeeks researched open source recycling, reusing electronics and computers, reducing electronic waste and sustainable computing. ​ Interest in eco-friendly open source automotive surfaced and made the final cut as well.  We are also looking as Urban Farming and Composting. ​ Cooperation from several generous organizations helped make this track what it is today.  ​
