If you are anything like me, you are forever using search engines to find answers to all of life’s mysteries.
What movie did that actress star in, do penguins indeed have knees and where is my closest zero waste shop?
Now, what about if you could find all those answers and plant trees all around the world at the same time? Sounds too good to be true? Well, it might not be.
Have you ever heard of the search engine www.ecosia.org ?
Neither had I before it suddenly appeared somewhere in a blog I was reading. My first thought was sceptical, I must admit, but it really seems legit!
Funded by ad revenue, they use the searches to fund projects around the world. Instead of doing it all themselves, they team up with local established groups and fund their work.
To date, they have planted over 150,000,000 trees!
So, there you go, being good could not be simpler, and where else does not knowing things indeed help the world? :D
PS. I bet your first search will be to learn if penguins have knees 😉
