ECO2 Forests Expand Media Network as Growth Continues

SACRAMENTO, CA and RENO, NV and QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - March 18, 2010) -

ECO2 Forests (PINKSHEETS: ECOF) is proud to announce that leading public relations and online collaboration specialists Abbi PR has been engaged to build on recent momentum gained within the US media, which recently included a feature on NBC.

The NBC affiliate feature, which can be viewed at www.eco2forests.com, highlighted the virtues of the Kiri Tree, a unique species used by the company in their planned new forest projects around the world, paying particular attention to its environmental attributes.

"The Kiri Tree and our Global Forestry Plan create a remarkable story and it was encouraging to see a network affiliate of the caliber of NBC choose to tell our story. We have engaged Abbi Pr to continue informing investors and the public of our story across a range of media platforms in the US and abroad," ECO2 Forests Chief Executive Officer Collie Christensen said.

"ECO2 Forests has a remarkable story and we look forward to telling and engaging with the US public about this amazing Kiri Tree, the Global Forestry Plan and the business model they have created, through a range of media platforms," Abbi PR Managing Director Abbi Whitaker said today.

In Australia, the company has launched a new advertising campaign focused on acquiring reforestation projects with mining companies which are legally required to rehabilitate their mined land.

The campaign, with leading mining industry publishing company Australian Publishing Resource Service (APRS), allows ECO2 Forests to directly promote their Profit Share Land Partnerships for mined land rehabilitation to senior mining executives, environmental and rehabilitation managers.

"Our strategic advertising campaign with APRS is focused on acquiring joint venture projects with mining companies who need to rehabilitate their mined land, something which they are required to do by law in Australia. Our projects not only aim to rehabilitate their mined land to meet government requirements but turn what is a considerable multi-million dollar expense into a long term revenue earner," Christensen said.

APRS Managing Director Garth Wright also recognizes a strong synergy.

"Having a client like ECO2 Forests come on board in such a significant way across all our mining publications highlights some key environmental aspects of mining and demonstrates to the right industry heads how projects of this kind can achieve an economic benefit for all parties and of course the environment," Wright said.

Advertisements will be featured across the full range of APRS Mining Publications: Australasian Mining and Energy Review, SA Mining & Petroleum Bulletin, WA Mining & Petroleum Bulletin, QLD Mining & Energy Bulletin, Australasian Mine Safety, NSW Minerals Industry Annual and NSW Coal Industry Profile.
