Ecosia, the search engine that plants trees

Post by MisterSTAPS on Thu Dec 29, 2016 1:24 am

Hi everyone.

I would like to talk to you about a search engine. This is not new but I didn't know it before so I wanted to share it with you.
The purpose is to (re)plant trees. When you make a researchs, profits are used for boosting the reforestation and to care for the environnement.

It's a simple "plug-in" you add to your current search engine. Since I use it, I have "replanted" 34 trees.

This operation is true, trees are really replanted BUT I am wondering if the working conditions are acceptables. I saw an other video but I can not find it. It's about the workers in the field, they were smiling, happy to do this job but I don't know if it's the true reality. Anyway, this is a good action. Here you go the video that introduce the concept of the company.

Thank you Jamel. I hate Google as well for some reasons... But I'm still using it... I didn't know Qwant. I will try soon.

Are you using a special browser for your smartphone too? I am going to check on the store if a browser like Qwant exists.

For my phone , i've downloaded Lilo App in AppStore and i use exclusively this app for my searches. Even you can go to settings on your phone , you can change the main web search for DuckDuckGo if you have an iPhone. DuckDuckGo is exaclty like Qwant, it's protects you privacy and doesn't track you.

I personally use Lilo on my computer and sometimes on my phone, I prefer it to Ecosia which I didn't know if I could trust. Lilo is awesome, check it out ! Very Happy
