There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Ecosia.org is a search engine...

But it's not just another search engine.

Ecosia is the tree-planting organisation run the money made from searches by users, it funds its reforestation programs and empower communities around the world. It claims to use 80% of its profit for that, a single search generates about 0.5 cents.
Ecosia owns and operates its own solar plant, which it claims powers the searches with 100% renewable energy & publish all the monthly financial reports and tree-planting receipts on their website. To learn more visit: https://info.ecosia.org & https://blog.ecosia.org/

As part of its vision to counter deforestation, they hope to plant one billion new trees by 2020. They crossed the 50million mark this week...




My Personal Experience: Available for Chrome, Firefox, Opera etc. the search engine is better than Yahoo, Bing but cannot rival Google despite constant improvements. Honestly, i doubt it'll ever catch up! 

But it's new Browser-app for Android has a rating of 4.7 on Google Play! I used it & found it to be at qualitatively at par with Google Chrome, although it may get a bit glitchy on some devices.
