Create A Greener World By Resetting Your Browser’s Homepage

Driving less, composting more, and generating your own energy with a home solar system are the lifestyle changes that can really take a bite out of your personal carbon footprint, and help create a healthier planet for us all. But these are changes that take time, money, and most of all, a conscious effort. In today’s fast-paced society, these changes may be out of reach for many.

That’s why we’re glad there are also small, seemingly effortless steps people can take to be more sustainable. This can be as easy as bringing your own bags to the grocery store, or, in the case of the newly relaunched Envirosearch.org, the simple act of resetting your internet browser’s homepage.

A project of the Carbonfund.org Foundation, a non-profit provider of carbon reduction and offsetting services, Envirosearch.org has been relaunched on the back of Microsoft’s Bing search engine. By simply making http://www.envirosearch.org their home page or adding it as their preferred search engine, users help generate revenue from Yahoo! and other sources. This revenue is then used to support environmental programs and projects, such as global reforestation efforts that clean our air and water, protect wildlife and habitats, and reduce harmful pollution and emissions. Liking Envirosearch on Facebook has an even bigger one-time impact, with Carbonfund.org planting five trees, for each new fan, up to 500,000 trees.

Normally a switch like this would be a no-brainer for those who’d like to create a greener world while surfing the web. The only problem is that Bing is an inferior search engine tool. Those who prefer Google Chrome or Firefox might find it hard to justify the switch to these less-powerful alternatives. But for those who only search occasionally or who already use Bing, Envirosearch.org should be a no-brainer.
