Search the web,
save the environment
Ecosia is a search engine like Google. But it really isn’t. Because it does plants trees because of your web search; it donates 80% of its income, earned by ads, to a tree planting program in Brazil. By searching with Ecosia you can help the environment for free. Give it a try!
You can search and shop the web with Ecosia to help reforest the Brazilian Atlantic Forest in cooperation with The Nature Conservancy’s “Plant a Billion Trees” program. Ecosia’s web search is also completely CO2 neutral.
It even shows you your “tree planting progress”; you can look how many trees can be planted by your “help” (aka your search activity).
