A Statement of Congratulations to our friends at Ecosia!

By Lloyd Farley

Marrakech

 

Our friends and partners at Ecosia have just met a wonderful landmark and we are happy to have been a part of their wonderful project. Just yesterday the folks at Ecosia celebrated planting ten million trees and we were happy to join over livestream from Morocco.

 

For those who do not know, Ecosia is a search engine that pledges to plant a tree each time someone makes a search. It is an ingenious method that enables people to make a difference in the world even as they go about their daily routine in the office, classroom or at home.

 

We with High Atlas Foundation in Morocco are glad to say that we have seen the difference that the users and proprietors of Ecosia are bringing to the world with our very own eyes. Just as Ecosia is present in several cotenants helping plant trees, we have started our very own nurseries with the support of Ecosia. The partnership with Ecosia has enabled us with the High Atlas Foundation to continue our projects of extending hands on green education with school children, creating environmental benefits through tree planting and enhancing the incomes of rural incomes by planting high value fruit trees. From our perspective, we know that each tree is making a difference, given the global reach of Ecosia, we can only imagine the scale of their impact.

 

Once again, we would like congratulate and thank the folks at Ecosia and the crucial work they are doing in connecting a global community to the needs of our planet and the people that live on it.
