Ecosia is a search engine that donates at least 80% of its profits to not-for-profit organizations that focus on reforestation and planting trees where they are needed most. They are carbon negative and in 2020 were the first company to produce twice as much solar power as they needed. They now plant one tree every second across 21 reforestation projects around the planet. So when you search with Ecosia you’re planting trees that fight climate change by removing CO2 from the atmosphere, accelerate the energy transition away from fossil fuels and can feel good that you’re helping out the planet while you search for cat videos (but not at work 😉). To set Ecosia as your default browser, visit the website and click the button below. You can also sync the setting so it defaults to all the PCs you log into.

It’s one small way we can make a difference at work without having to lift a finger. You also get a tree-counter in the top righthand corner so you know how many trees you’ve planted!   

Happy searching and tree-planting!!
