Save the rain forest by searching
Search is everywhere, that is something you could very well say. But can search save the world? According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) it can. They set up the search engine Ecosia. Every search on this search engine will help WWF projects in the Amazon.
According to the search engine every search will save about two square meters of rain forest. Until now almost 280.000 square meters should be saved with the results. The search engine earns money with every click on a sponsored ad.
Ecosia was founded by the German Christian Kroll (26) and is based in Wittenberg (Germany) and has already 15 people working for them.
