Green links

We constantly get emails through from people wanting us to add links to the site, but we are such a tiny team of people that we don’t (yet!) have time to regularly update the links section. We’re still trying our best to answer every message sent through to the site as top priority, or at least make changes/improvements based on them.

However, there have been a couple of particularly interesting sources who’ve got in touch mentioning links. Firstly, veteran journalist and eco-authority Ken Hickson has been in touch to say how much he loves the Ecocho site and mentioned his interesting carbon consultant site ABC Carbon: abccarbon.com.

Secondly, Ingo from Germany wrote to us to tell all about WikiWoods, an initiative that “helps forests and woods to grow and flourish in a natural way – worldwide”. The project uses the internet platform (in a similar way to Wikipedia) to help make it possible for volunteers, experts and sponsors to meet on the web and work together on local area forest-projects. We thought it was pretty cool. The project started in 2007 and so far has planted 2500 trees. There’s an english article here: wikiwoods.org/doku.php/plant_the_world_s_biggest_forest

We thought we’d share those with you!

    I sent this to google :

    Dear Sir
    Dear Madam,

    last night i read on the ecocho webpage that ecocho isn’t allowed to use the google engine anymore.

    On one hand i can understand this decision. Google is a great search engine wich has some very inventive technology. It has worked hard to be the most used search engine in the world. It developed it’s own software and it is understandable it doesn’t want to share it with anybody.

    On the other hand, if you look further i regret this decision. If you look at the problems today in the world it is sad that google, which has a chance to be a part of the solution, doesn’t support other inventive applications of it’s search engine. Google has always be an innovative company.
    Why can’t it ride on the wave of environmental awareness? Instead of being a part of the problem, it can be another solution. Google has always shown interest in young people. It would be hypocrite that it would damage the own future of the people who is said to be cherishing.

    Awaiting a response i thank you.

    Yours sincerely

    Nico
