It’s not always easy to find practical ways to go about it (not everyone has the time or resources to plant a whole bunch of trees, for example), but now anyone who uses the internet has no excuse – all you have to do is Green Your Search.
- Searching the internet is becoming one of the most common usages of time in today’s cultures and all the billions of searches combined use up a lot of electrical energy.
- Google allows its users to create customised search engines that provide search results from Google itself.
- By creating a customised search engine of their own, Faithful to Nature can track how many searches have been done.
- It costs R70 for Food & Trees for Africa to plant a tree; for every 1500 searches done on www.GreenYourSearch.com Faithful to Nature will donate R70 to Food and Trees for Africa to plant a tree.
What a brilliant idea – a completely effortless way for us to reduce our carbon footprint, whilst doing what we do anyway!
So, if you’re keen to lessen the impact of your web-surfing – and want a dose of that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from helping to populate the world with lots more carbon-munching water-retaining trees – it’s time to start using greenyoursearch.com.
