Ecosia is the search engine that plants trees with its ad revenue. We are one of the world’s largest environmental movements and the first B Corporation in Germany. Our aim is to plant and protect billions of trees by enabling people to channel their everyday actions into environmental good. So far our 15 million users have planted over 125 million trees in more than 25 countries and our reach is expanding as we continue to grow!
Ecosia lets users plant trees by searching the web. In donating 80 percent of its surplus ad revenue, the search engine has raised more than $3 million for reforestation projects since its founding in December 2009. Ecosia's mission to cultivate a world where the environment doesn’t need protecting has it working to plant one billion new trees. By supporting high-impact reforestation efforts – as well as neutralising all CO2 emissions related to its search – Ecosia aims to achieve the highest positive environmental impact per dollar possible. By publishing its monthly donation receipts online, Ecosia aims to live up to its users’ demands for transparency. And by working to improve its charitable web service day after day, Ecosia aims to show the world that small changes can make a big difference. In its mission to plant one billion trees, Ecosia is working with experts and communities to reforest areas of the world that need it most. Sustainable, high-impact planting strategies mean improvements to the environment, local economies and social stability.
