New Search Engine that plants trees

Forget Google, this site will plant trees instead of donating to climate deniers and selling your personal information while using renewable energy to power their servers and publishing monthly,  fully transparent reports on what they are doing. 

Ecosia – the search engine that plants trees

Ecosia uses the ad revenue from your searches to plant trees where they are needed the most. By searching with Ecosia, you’re not only reforesting our planet, but you’re also empowering the communities around our planting projects to build a better future for themselves.

You search the web, we plant trees

Ecosia is like any other search engine, with one major difference: we use our profits to plant trees.

We plant trees where they’re needed most

Our trees benefit people, the environment and local economies.

“We plant native acacia trees, because they make the soil more fertile. With our earnings we started a communal savings account for women to borrow and start their own businesses.”
