There are numerous ways that individuals can have a huge impact on our growing environmental issues. However, many people tend to think that making one small change isn’t going to affect much at all. That one person’s actions may not be enormous, but if everyone would change one small thing each week, it would really add up. I think I’ll post about some of these things from time to time, and thought I’d start with that right now…
I understand that Google is the probably the most popular means of searching the internet today, but there are many who still have been hesitant make that switch from Yahoo! or MSN. Personally, I like Dogpile because it combines all of them. That’s another story, though.
Ecocho is something I will be trying to remember to use daily from now on. What in the world is Ecocho? It’s a new search engine powered by Yahoo!, but there’s more to it. For every 1,000 searches performed on their site they plant two trees to offset carbon pollution! You’ve probably heard how important trees are to our environment, and how we are dangerously losing them everyday.
Next time you need to search for something, why not do a couple of those searches on Ecocho and help save our earth at the same time?
