A search on Ekoru helps to clean our oceans.
This charity-led search engine is starting to gain traction as the world becomes increasingly conscious of the damage we are doing to our seas and oceans. Ekoru claims that: Every search helps raise funds for Big Blue Ocean Cleanup Every search helps raise funds for Operation Posidonia All of their servers are powered by hydro-electricity
This is a genuinely ethical search engine, and everything has been thought out with an eco-first approach in mind.
Ekoru could also be categorized as an alternative to Google as a privacy-first search engine. Their commitment to encrypting all data and by not storing any of your searches on their servers is another pro for this eco-friendly search engine. A double-win for Ekoru!
