Verde70 (Green70) was a music group from Quito, Ecuador. Verde70 started in 1999 with band members Dario Castro (vocals and guitar) David Arízaga (drums) and Diego Saa (backup vocals and bass guitar). The group achieved widespread fame across the country, in 2000, when they released Alegre Depresion, their first album, which made a breakthrough in the Ecuador's music scene.

For Ruta Melancolia, their second album, they were joined by Cesar Galarza (guitar).

They disbanded in 2008. Dario Castro and David Arizaga now pursue solo careers and Diego Saa relocated to Florida and formed the group La Gente Naranja (The Orange People).

Verde70 is considered as one of the most influential and successful groups in the history of Ecuador.
