We use Ecosia and so should you

At Initi we are commited to being as environmentally friendly as possible, this includes our search engine usage too, because we use Ecosia as our main search engine instead of Google.

What is 'Ecosia'?

Ecosia is a search engine. It donates 80% of its profits to nonprofit organizations that focus on reforestation. It considers itself a social business, is CO₂-negative and supports full financial transparency and protects the privacy of its users. Ecosia is also B Lab certified.

As you'll find on their excellent blog, they have over 50 reasons why you should use them but the main and most compelling reason for us, is that they plant trees when you simply search the internet
You read that right, all those Google searches you've been doing, could have resulted in more trees! FOR FREE!.

On average, it takes around 45 searches to equal 1 tree being planted, and each search with Ecosia removes roughly 1 kg of CO2 from the air.

How easy is it to switch?

It's super simple. Go to the Ecosia homepage and they'll detect your browser and suggest adding an extension or provide details to make it your default search engine.

It takes seconds to switch, so do yourself, our planet and everyone else a favour, and make the switch today!
