DescriptionFrank Carini a Boston native with an accent to match has gone from sports writing to composting. He founded ecoRI.com in September 2009 after spending twenty years at newspapers on the North Shore in Massachusetts Cincinnati and in Newport Rhode Island. “I was getting sick of the direction of where we were going” he says. “Too much covering press releases and crap like that.”
