Created by: rombus

Pronunciation: eko fars ahl ogee

Sentence: Brian read about the new movement to save the planet. There were stickers on products that were "touted" as environmentally friendly. Some of them cost more but promised to either last longer or be more friendly to the environment. After using some of these products, Brian was wondering whether it was all a bunch of ecofarsology.
