Today’s Solutions: December 08, 2023

Looking for an easy way to fight climate change? Here’s a simple one: the next time you need to search for something on the internet, use Ecosia – a search engine company that uses at least 80 percent of its ad-generated profits to plant millions of trees around the world. The small environmentally-minded company has recently brought in enough revenues to enable it to plant 50 million trees, which equates to the removal of 2.5 million tons of CO2 from the atmosphere. The startup partners with various projects globally to plant trees in locations where they can benefit the local economy and therefore positively contribute to communities. The non-profit’s ambition is to potentially plant 1 trillion trees to help prevent a climate change catastrophe. That’s a big number, but just by simply using Ecosia as their main search engine, people could help make that goal a reality.
