Consumeless for a year

Sorry for over-posting tonight! But I got a tip about a green search engine I’d like to share. Their servers run on green energy and with each search they say you save a part of rain forest. Sounds good. However, I’m slightly concerned by the fact that Yahoo and Bing apparently have a large share in this initiative. But hey, it can’t hurt to try! I’ve installed the toolbar and will test it out.

The video below explains how search engines add to climate change and how Ecosia (hairball!) works. I like the fact that they constantly show you how much forest you’ve already saved. And please pay attention to the amusing banner about harassing Google :-).

    Hmm, I thought I had installed the Firefox add-on, but it won’t show up. I do see the statistics at the bottom of my screen. One search saved 1,9 square meter of rain forest. But it failed to find our blog when I typed “consumeless for a year” :-s

      Update: I have been able to install the add-on on my MacBook, but not on my work’s Dell.

    Ik heb spijtig genoeg die searchengine verwijderd omdat hij voor “Karin Slegers + consumeless” geen goede resultaten gaf in tegenstelling tot Google
