Ecosia search engine aims to save rainforests

Ecosia, a new search engine, which promises to save rainforests by denoting 80 per cent of its income to WWF rainforest protection projects, launched on Monday.

Ecosia, which is powered by Bing and Yahoo technology, claimed that users will save two square meters of rainforests each time they make a search through it.

Berlin-based firm company’s founder Christian Kroll said that huge money generated from search engine should be used to fight back global warming.

Speaking on the issue, a spokesperson for WWF said, “Each search with Ecosia will protect a piece of rainforest.”

Ecosia added that each search on Google generates as much CO2 as a light bulb creates in one hour.

Deforestation produces climate changing CO2 as well as eliminate precious wild life.
