The Eco Preservation Society isn't forcing one to take extreme steps, but rather encouraging each of us to take a minumum of one eco friendly step toward becoming more sustainable. If most of us take one step then as a complete, we could make a substantial difference.

Switch Now to Ecosia and Help to Save the Planet!

The boss of Ecosia says he wants “to make the world a greener, better place” – and he means it! Most of the profits of Ecosia are used to plant trees around the world. WOW!

Christian Kroll, the founder, adds “I also want to prove that there is a more ethical alternative to the kind of greedy capitalism that is coming close to destroying the planet.”

WOW again!

What Is Ecosia?

ecosia logoEcosia is an internet search engine, just like Google. Like Google, they make money from advertising. You know the adverts you see when you search on Google? Well, Google and Ecosia earn money every time someone clicks on those ads.

Ecosia then donates 80% of the profits it makes to tree-planting charities. It has funded over 100 million trees so far!

And on average, it takes 45 clicks to raise the money to plant 1 tree, so that’s a LOT of searches!

How Big (and Profitable) is Ecosia?

Founded in 2009, it has 15 million users. This is tiny compared to Google, but it’s growing fast.

The founders of Google – Larry Page and Sergey Brin – are now billionaires. Page bought a super-yacht for $45 million in 2011.

But Kroll says he’ll never buy a super-yacht. “While they have big yachts, I have an inflatable dinghy that I take to lakes. Ego consumption is not appropriate in a world where there’s climate change.”

In fact, he probably wouldn’t be able to buy one even if he wanted to. He put two legally binding restrictions on the business – shareholders and staff cannot personally sell shares or take profits outside of the company. (WOW again).

 


slow climate change

 

Today Ecosia employs 70 people. Personally, I really like the fact that (because so much of their profits are put into planting trees), every time you do a search on Ecosia, you help to remove 1kg (about 2 pounds)  of CO2 from the air.  Isn’t that just wonderful?

Here’s what makes them different:-

Is It Difficult to Compete with Google?

Yes, definitely. Their search engine uses Microsoft’s Bing’s technology. But Google is the default search engine for Android phones and for Chrome – and most people don’t change the default. Google also spends billions of dollars a year to be the default search for Apple devices. How can you compete with that?

Capitalism

Kroll hopes that regulators will try to loosen Google’s grip. But he also hopes that capitalism can change for the better. He says our current system is not healthy, and that we need to re-think the role of business.

He’s right of course. Rampant consumerism fuelled by advertising, money buying legislation that protects large companies, constant degradation and mis-use of land, corporations viewing the planet as one big place to extract and destroy, no protection for the poor or for animals……. It’s all driven by profit-at-any-cost capitalism.

So, I encourage you to change from your current search engine (which is probably Google) to Ecosia. Just go to ecosia.org and choose it as your default browser. Thank you!
