ECO-TIP OF THE MONTH

OCTOBER 2019

Ecosia



How can I plant trees while actually sitting at home using my computer?  It is very simple!  Search the web using Ecosia instead of your usual search engine.  Ecosia generates income this way and finances tree-planting where they are needed most.  Ecosia was founded in 2009 and aims to tackle deforestation.  It has won several awards and by June this year had planted an amazing 60 million trees around the world.
