This study aims to analyze the green discourses on the integration of environmental education in teaching English written by teachers through critical eco-linguistics analysis. The study utilized the critical discourse analysis research design, which is a combination of the sociological-empirical approach and critical discourse analysis as the critical approach. It investigates not only the linguistic aspects but also the discourse practice, intertextuality, and experiences presented in the ten (10) green discourses written by the teachers. The findings revealed that teachers used material and mental processes in their green discourses to build teachers’ power or role in integrating environmental education in teaching English. In contrast, relational and existential processes allow them to share their beliefs and to express their judgment, understanding, and preferences in integrating environmental education into teaching English. Moreover, they understand that teaching-learning activities in English class are not limited to teaching theoretical, grammatical and linguistic aspects; it also needs the integration of environmental education. This shows that despite their experience of challenges and limitations in integrating environmental education into teaching English, they still managed to integrate environmental education into teaching English using different methods. Finally, eco-pedagogical strategies in English language teaching adapting the neo-model of Environmental Education in the Philippines and the National Environmental Education Action Plan were proposed to address the concerns in integrating environmental education in teaching English.
