She has contributed to the framing of the women's spirituality, ecofeminist and Green politics movements. Prof. Spretnak has also written three books on ecological politics and ecophilosophy. She is co-author of Green Politics: The Global Promise (Dutton, 1984), which was a catalyst for the forming of the Green Party of the United States; she was a co-founder of the party itself.
