Ecosia – 10th January 2021

This week we will be looking at an alternative search engine you can use. Ecosia does the same job as Google, except they plant a tree for every search you make. Since they began their community, they have planted trees in Ethiopia, Brazil, Indonesia, Spain and many other countries.
