I set all my devices to use Ecosia as the default search engine like a year ago and forgot all about it. Now my little tracker says I have about 5,000 searches. Supposedly that’s over 100 trees planted.
I helped plant 100 trees by doing nothing except looking up B movie stars’ biographies and searching for the exact same waffle recipe every Sunday instead of just writing it down.
And you can, too. Just go into your browser settings and change the default search engine to Ecosia. As far as I can tell, it’s legit, and even if it isn’t, it ain’t like fucking Google was gonna do anything nice for you.
Now go be an aggressive douchebag about this to your office the same way I’m gonna be, so everyone else can passively plant trees, too.
