This is a very cool search engine we’ve started using and want to pass along! Super easy to install as your primary browser, Clear, concise search results with fewer ads, and in exchange for forgoing Google’s goofy grafix, you’ll get to watch the number of trees your search clics help plant! Now that’s what we call a worthwhile trade off!
Here’s the link to get started: http://www.ecosia.org then select “more” in the lower left corner.
And here’s a link to their blog showing how our clicks get turned into planted trees! http://blog.ecosia.org/post/91850071905/the-trees-for-the-forest-more-than-700-000
A few factoids from the ECOSIA website
* 80% of the ECOSIA ad revenue goes to the rainforest tree planting program
* The funds from ECOSIA have resulted in over 670 thousand trees planted to date.
