    Gratlations to the 2,000,000th search query!

    An interesting fact I found after doing some searching, using Ecocho of course!

    The average American produces 19.5 tonnes of CO2 per year, the figures are probably somewhat less for most other nationalities, but I couldn’t find figures for other countries.

    Assuming that Ecocho plants 2 trees for every 1,000 searches made, you’d need to submit 19,500 search queries to counter your carbon emissions. That sounds a lot but it’s only 53 searches per day, count how many times you enter a search and you may be surprised how many you make.

    I’ve found a lot of variance in figures on the net, one site quotes the average person produces only 2 tonnes of CO2 annually (this could be for the whole of the population I suppose) and another claims that each tree planted absorbs 4 tonnes of CO2 in it’s lifetime, Ecocho quotes half a tonne. Again this would depend on the types of tree being planted and their environment etc.

    Hi,

    I draw your attention to the fact that the problems created by a person in one year require a lifetime (TBD) of a tree to be rectified. I appreciate your initiative and I use your ecocho website, but please don’t promote the idea that ecosearching will be enough to counterbalance our enviroment unfriendly habits.
    We do need to rethink our economies and our purchasing habits. Think before you spend!

    Ciao.

    Many friends to whom I reccommended your website asked me the following question: are you sure they really plant trees? Apparently the KPMG certification is not enough to convince people. Why don’t you provide a little bit more info on where trees are planted, how you can assure that will be preserved overtime. Maybe adding some pics could be useful even if not enough.

    Ciao.

    Enrico.
