Planting Trees Without Getting Your Hands Dirty
We all love trees here, but that doesn't mean you need to necessarily hug them - or live in one for 499 days. Planting them in your garden is a wonderful thing to do, but did you know you can plant trees just be searching the web? There's a social business run out of Berlin called Ecosia, that uses revenue from your searches and clicks to (re-) forest many parts of the world, mainly in developing countries. They work together with WeForest on accredited planting projects, and recently announced a partnership with the Jane Goodall Foundation.

Projects have resulted in 20 million trees planted, and growing.
Please note that we are not affiliated with Ecosia in any way, shape or form. We just think it's a great idea! It makes a real difference by doing something you probably already do many times a day.
It's not like using Google doesn't have it's upsides either. Apart from the undoubtedly high quality of search results, the company really does seem to care about sustainability. Running on 100% renewable energy is just one aspect. You can find out more at Google Green - https://environment.google/
In closing, please pat yourself on the back. You are part of the global movement that cares. Thank you for being a part of it.
