Abstract
Ecocomposition is a fairly new applied approach in the composition classroom. Its application helped first-year composition teachers raise environmental awareness and discuss the impact of place on writers. In spite of its significance, ecocomposition application in the EFL classroom is nearly nonexistent. The purpose of this paper is to explore how ecocomposition is implemented in the composition classroom to propose introducing it to the EFL writing classroom. This is by discussing the ways in which ecocomposition is applied in the first-year college composition classroom by a number of compositionists and writing teachers such as Derek Owens and others. In discussing those ways of applying ecocomposition into the EFL writing classroom, EFL writing teachers will have examples that would help them design ecocomposition courses that would help raising place and environment awareness.

Keywords: Ecocomposition, environment-oriented composition, place-oriented composition, and sustainability.
