What Is Ecosia About?

And Why Am I Promoting It Here?

I came across it some months ago and lost the bookmark. 

This time  found it, I discovered much more.......it's so exciting!


There is a man named Christian in Germany who majored in IT (Computing) in University.

He is also a very compassionate man with interest in people and places.

He is concerned about The Climate Change (known as global warming)

but with a difference - he has a BIG Vision to change things for people in different countries.

In 2009, he started a big Search Engine on the Internet we can use in place of Google

and 80% OF All Revenue would Go Into Planting Trees.


Here's where we come into the picture.

His Vision has really progressed during this time and not hundreds or thousands of Trees 

have been Planted but millions (in different countries collectively)


Unbelievable hey? Well, it is True, I checked it all out - Amazing!

And the premises his team works in is completely Solar Powered

for ethical reasons - if you are aware of emissions 

from buildings with big search engines.


There are many more Videos on YouTube about the Activities and Ongoing

Progress of ECOSIA. I will place a few here for you that should

 wet your appetite to see and hear more!


By the way, we have more Privacy over Ecosia because they don't 

Sell Our Searches to Big Business Third Parties.

Nice to know that!


As stated on the Happy Funding page

it only takes 45 searches to Fund each Tree.

They even have an Icon at the top of our screen that keeps count of our Total Searches

on the Internet using the ECOSIA Search Engine,

so we know how many Trees we have funded.

Look for the "little tree" on your top right, when you make 2-3 searches. How nifty is that?


ECOSIA'S PLEDGE TO US

Ecosia is a “privacy friendly” search engine. We take user privacy very seriously. 

By using Ecosia (instead of for example Google) you drastically reduce the amount of data that is collected about you.

WE DON’T STORE YOUR SEARCHES PERMANENTLY

We don’t create personal profiles of you based on your search history. 

We actually anonymize all searches within one week.

AND

YOUR SEARCHES ARE ENCRYPTED

We protect your privacy:

Forests need protecting and so does your privacy. We make sure to do both.


For those interested, Ecosia means "Gift from God"

I heard many years ago that A Calling  Makes Way For A Person.

This has certainly proven true for Christian.

All the very best to you and all who are involved in Ecosia.

I personally find this very satisfying!
