Search, and You Shall Find

Check out this YouTube video to learn about the newest search engine on the block: Ecosia.  Add in, it's an eco-friendly one at that. Ecosia is backed by Yahoo, Bing and the World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF).  It functions like any other search engine out there, however some major twists:

1.  80% of it's advertising moola goes to protect the rain forest (with the help of WWF--the current rain forest program is helping Brazil's Juruena National Park, near the Amazon River).

2.  They operate under green electricity, eliminating the CO2 emissions that other engines use.

3.  It's an active way to tackle deforestation, both on the part of Ecosia & you!

If you're going to look "it" up (whatever "it" is)....might be worth clicking the title above or going to to try out Ecosia!  Most certainly, watch the video!!
