today I have seen an advertising on Youtube about a social search engine which is planting trees with the revenue generated by advertising inside the search engine. This concept sounds really great and according to the statistics on the website https://info.ecosia.org they already have over 7 million users and planted over 39 million trees!
Ecosia donates at least 80% of its surplus income to tree-planting programs all over the world. This is really awesome and Im very interested to support such projects.
This search engine was founded in 2009 and already won several rewards for this great concept and growing popularity. It´s a company from my home city Berlin and Im really wondering why I haven´t heard about it earlier…
Here you can watch an interview with the founding story of the Ecosia.org concept with the founder Christian:
I will definitely use this search engine from time to time in addition to the Presearch seach engine, where you can earn cryptocurrency tokens for using it, but Presearch has no charity concept like Ecosia.org so far and so Ecosia is is more social for the world as Presearch. If you want to support this concept too, just use the search engine from time to time too and download the mobile app for using Ecosia with your smarthone. With each 0,2 € earned from advertising, Ecosia is planting one tree!

At first setup your WordPress blog and if you don’t know how to do this, a very simple way is to buy a domain at United-Domains. They are offering a very easy setup with just a few clicks.
