Ecosia Founder Christian Kroll Featured on Impact Podcast

LOS ANGELES--()--Christian Kroll, Founder and CEO of Ecosia, the green search engine that uses its profits to plant trees, is a featured guest this week on the Impact Podcast with John Shegerian. The show is hosted by Shegerian, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of ERI, the nation’s leading fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company.

Kroll launched Ecosia in 2009 after witnessing the devastating impacts of social inequality and massive deforestation while traveling through Nepal and South America. Ecosia has since gone on to become the world’s largest not-for-profit search engine and has planted more than 120 million trees in over 30 countries. In 2014, Ecosia became Germany’s first certified B Corporation, and in 2018 Kroll gave away his right to ever sell Ecosia or take dividends out of the company.

"I really enjoyed being a guest on the Impact Podcast with John Shegerian,” said Kroll. “John's enthusiasm for Ecosia and our story made for a fun and relaxed conversation. Thanks for having me on and helping to spread the word about Ecosia and our mission to regenerate the planet."

“It was an honor to have Christian on our show,” said Shegerian. “He’s a perfect example of someone who has harnessed innovation to proactively do something impactful to help protect our planet. Through his brilliant, easy to use search platform at Ecosia, he has made it easy for anyone to take a simple, useful action online to truly make a difference. I’m sure our listeners will be both entertained and inspired by Christian’s story and passion for the environmental change.”
