Look through the categories and see. I've never heard of Eco Fiction.

It's not a genre anywhere. The standard genres are listed when you complete your book's metadata, fine tuned by the keywords you choose. Keywords deter*mine your final sub-sub-genre, which you might use to create (for example) a listing such as...

Literature & Fiction > Science Fiction > Adventure > Dystopian > Ecological Disaster

Some genres have mandatory keywords, which you should take the time to learn if you want to have more control over the listing of your book. That information, along with all the other wisdom in the self-publishing universe, is found in the KDP help pages.
