I started using DuckDuckGo instead of Google back in 2017 but, more recently, have relied on Brave's search engine, especially on my phone. I've been looking to shake things up a bit and was considering Startpage but don't like the huge ads at the top of the results that often take up most of my phone screen.
Seth Godin suggested switching to Ecosia so I'm giving it a try. I've seen it before but, for some reason, dismissed it — I think it's time to make the switch and do some good for the planet while I'm at it. If you're not aware, Ecosia is a carbon negative, not for profit, certified B Corp that plants trees with the revenue it makes. Millions of them.
Even if I have to revert to other search engines every now and then, the slight inconvenience will be far outweighed by the benefits.
