English translation:eco center
Explanation:
The term 'eco' is a buzzword used in all kinds of contexts to mean 'environmentally friendly' or 'taking care of the environment', etc. The term 'ecological' refers to the science of ecology, which is an entirely different thing. The term 'ecological' should not be used to describe products, packaging, buildings, centers or anything else.

Reference: two ecologists in my family.
