The world has never been as threatened as it is today. If we don’t act now, it will be too late. Therefore, we’d like to introduce you to one of the easiest ways to tackle our biggest problem:
This proposal is simple, free and, most importantly, effective. We all use the Internet every day. Wouldn’t it be nice if we wouldn’t pollute the environment, but use it to protect nature?
As impossible as it sounds, it is possible: with Ecosia, the search engine that plants trees. Ecosia, a B-certified cooperation, has already planted over 110 million trees in all parts of the world. They support reforestation in Brazil, Kenya and Indonesia, as well as in many other parts of the world!
Ecosia plants 10 trees in just 8 seconds, more than 100.000 trees per day! In total, they remove more than 50,000 tons (!) of CO2 from our atmosphere per month. All you have to do is download the app or add the extension to the search engine and then continue using the Internet normally. And as we said, it’s all completely free. You don’t pay a single penny.
But how does it work? – very easy: Like all other browsers, Ecosia makes money through advertising. They pass 80% of their profit on to organisations, which then plant trees in the respective areas. For all these reasons, you should also download Ecosia’s app, and start planting trees!
And while you’re at it, you can also install TAB FOR A CAUSE.
Now, what is this?
TAB FOR A CAUSE is another free extension that raises money for charity every time you open a new tab. But how, you may ask? Every time you open a new tab, TAB FOR A CAUSE displays adds in the corner of your screen. Like this, you can gather hearts, which you can then use to decide which charity the money should go to. Additionally, as we have already mentioned, it is completely free. Most importantly, it works together with Ecosia, so you can use both at the same time!
So, what are you waiting for? Install these add-ons and start raising money for good causes!
