Environmentally Friendly Search Engine

Environmentally Friendly Search Engine

I just discovered the coolest thing since sliced bread, or at least since I discovered a rare bird called the Pygmy Tyrant which lives in Costa Rica.

Don’t you just love the head feathers? But I digress. The coolest thing since the Pygmy Tyrant is Envirosearch.org, a new search engine that gives back to the planet. Hurray!

Every time you use Envirosearch to look for something on the internets, revenue from Yahoo! is generated and then used to support environmental programs including a Hatian reforestation project and an Indian mangrove replanting program, about which Envirosearch says, “In just two years alone, our partners in India were able to expand their tree planting to an additional ten communities along the coast of Andhra Pradesh and planted nearly 50,000 trees. Some of these trees will include Pongemia, which produces seeds that communities can use to make biodeisel.” Your clicks also create donates to reforestation projects all across the US. All for just a little searching.

I had not heard of this search engine before but sounds good so glad there are those who want to help the environement rather than just ripping off others & despoiling the planet.

I'm already using several search or click-to-donate sites such as redjellyfish.com, goodsearch.com, care2.com (of course) and The Hunger Site (plus related click to donate sites on the same page).

This site sounds very worthy; will try to use it also.

You can also search using ecosia.org, which is powered by Bing and Yahoo. The revenue from the sponsers goes to support The World Wild Life Fund's projects in the Amazon Rainforest.

Love growing collards, garlic, tomatoes, and peppers. Wasn't so happy with the lettuce production, …

I like cheese. A lot.

I think all of those are true of most people. At 57 though not dieing, I can relate to them all.

Interesting read, but, I probably won't be flipping any coins....:)
