The Spanish landscape is deteriorating, but you can help preserve, and restore, it by doing something very simply, for free; something that you do every day already.
Did you know that if you say goodbye to traditional search engines and use the Ecosia search engine on a daily basis instead, you could help save the planet. Put simply, Ecosia take the money raised from the use of their search engine and turn it into trees instead of profits and shareholder dividends.I'm saving Spain with #ecosia #alternativesearch . You can too! @ecosia @spainbuddyClick To Tweet
Please watch the video and take a look at what they are doing here in Spain where desertification is a major problem.
Give what we do, for us it’s a no brainer. Ecosia say that roughly 45 searches plant a tree. Between myself and Elle that probably equates to about two trees a day. The added bonus for us is that the project featured in the footage is right on our doorstep, that’s ‘our’ village (Vélez-Blanco) and ‘our’ mountain (La Muela) you’ll see in the video!
Go on, give it a try now at www.ecosia.org. If everyone reading this does just one search from this link to check Ecosia out, that’s probably equates to quite a few trees… a hefty step towards preserving and rescuing the Spanish landscape.
