A new ocean-friendly search engine has launched. Ekoru.org is aimed at cleaning up and reforesting the oceans with every internet search conducted.
The search engine seeks to achieve this by donating a significant chunk of its revenues to various ocean partners. To date, 60% of the revenue generated by Ekoru.org goes to the following conservation partners:
- Operation Posidonia by the University of New South Wales. The operation aims to reforest the ocean by planting seagrass, which can absorb carbon up to 40 times faster than rainforests.
- Big Blue Ocean Cleanup, which features teams around the world dedicated to removing plastic from the oceans.
In keeping with its ocean-friendly mission, the company ensures that all its servers are powered by hydroelectricity, so no fossil fuels are used to power their results.
