This made me baffled for a long time - what would be the opposite, without any workarounds? Could be say unecological? Does it sound right? While we are at it, is ecological the same as eco-friendly?

eco-unfriendly = polluting

But it depends on the kind of damage that is being done.

Hi,

This made me baffled for a long time - what would be the opposite, without any workarounds? Could be say unecological? Does it sound right? While we are at it, is ecological the same as eco-friendly?

ecological - related to ecology, ie ecological research
unecological - I've never heard this. Sounds like 'not related to ecology'.

eco-friendly - helpful to the ecology,
Perhaps the opposite might be eg eco-unfriendly ?

Hello Clive, thanks for the answer. Now it's clear to me with ecology, thanks. I am not sure if I would find courage to use eco-unfriendly though Emotion: wink Among friends, probably yes, as a linguistic joke, but officially... I would still look for another word. It sounds nice nevertheless, thanks for the suggestion! Emotion: smile And if anything else comes to your mind, maybe not exactly eco-fiendly word specific, please keep them coming!
Cheers!

Thank you AlpheccaStars! I can see the limits here, but this is a nice option for me to use. What about such case: I have a plastic bottle with juice and I want to say that it is not eco-friendly by using one word. Any ideas? Emotion: smile
This is a great forum!

Plastic is not bio-degradable.
