Green searching










Came across this great new green initiative on Twitter feeds.

Ecocho uses Google and Yahoo search engines but by conducting the search from their home page you help them raise money to plant trees.

I dislike the concept of off-setting (I think it makes people lazy about reducing carbon) but planting trees in conjunction with reduced carbon consumption is a very good idea - so get searching, and then make sure you turn your PC off at night!!

I know! I am a Googler rather than Yahoo-er but not anymore. I am so attached to the idea of green searching that I am now and Ecocho Yahoo searcher.

Nice one Google. Take your "Don't be evil!" mantra and make it mean something.
