Ecosia is the tech company that puts the ability to do good into the hands of internet users. When you use Ecosia to browse the web, your searches are helping to plant trees and reverse the effects of climate change.
*** How it works
Like other search engines, Ecosia makes money from search ads. The big difference is, Ecosia uses its profits to plant trees, where nature and people need them most. The Ecosia community is planting millions of trees every month across the world’s most threatened biodiversity hotspots, simply by searching the web. The more people that use Ecosia, the more trees we can plant, it’s that easy! So what are you waiting for?
***Privacy, not just promises
We're interested in trees, not your data: we don’t save your searches, we don’t track the websites you visit, we don’t sell your data to advertisers, and your searches are always SSL-encrypted.
CO2 neutral is not enough. Thanks to our own solar plant powering our servers on 100% renewable energy, and the Ecosia forests around the world, each of your searches removes around 1 kg of CO2 from the atmosphere.
Trust has to be earned. That’s why we publish our monthly financial reports and tree-planting receipts on our website. We also signed a legal contract that requires us to stay true to our not-for-profit cause, forever.

Ratings and Reviews
Love this app so much! I do my normal research/Google searches but plant trees at the same time! And getting to track where they are planted is a very cool feature!
Hi! I love what you do and I want to help in any way possible, I’m an environmental visual artist whose goal in life is to help our home. Is there any way I can be a part of your organization? My Instagram is @jon_ryan_draws
