ekoru: “Fight Climate Change By Changing Your Search Engine”

November 12, 2019 – Every day, people endeavor to do their part for the environment – they carry reusable bags to the grocery store, recycle plastic bottles and cans, circulate news stories of the poor whale who died after swallowing 88 pounds of plastic, join protests for climate change, donate monthly to their favorite causes, or volunteer their weekends to clean the beach. Now, there is another way they can contribute by doing what they regularly do – search the Internet.

By changing your search engine to ekoru.org, you are immediately making a difference. Every search you do raises money for the planet. Browser extensions are available for Chrome and Firefox desktop browsers, and an Android search application is available for mobile users. ekoru is partnering with several organizations that work on animal welfare, reforestation, ocean conservation, and climate change policy. Each month, one of these organizations will be highlighted.

In November, ekoru will partner with World Animal Protection, donating 60% of all revenue to the organization in support of animal welfare. World Animal Protection works globally to protect animals in communities, in disasters, in farming, and in the wild. Donations can make a life-saving difference for vulnerable animals.

ekoru generates revenue, just like any other search engine, through the use of sponsored links which appear above the search results. If a sponsored link is clicked on by a user, ekoru receives income from that action. Sixty percent of the revenue received is donated to charities related to the cause for the month.

Privacy is important to ekoru. User searches are all anonymous, no search history is retained, and every search is private. Zero data is retained on our servers. In the name of transparency, ekoru is committed to publishing the monthly amount donated to each charity along with donation receipts.

ekoru is designed to work across all devices including desktop, mobile, and tablet. The search engine provides high quality results for web, image, video, and news content.
