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 positive

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.

***Radical transparency

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.

Download the Ecosia app today. The world will be better for it.

Genial idea.

Me gusta mucho la app, no he vuelto a mi otro buscador. Pero me gustaría que hicieran más interactiva la app. Que hayan opciones para ver las distintas pestañas abiertas de una manera más amplia y que se guarde un historial. Sería genial que se convirtiera en un navegador o explorador, como Safari o Chrome. Sigan trabajando, esto va para grande 👍🏽👍🏽

Me gusta mucho

Por el momento no he extrañado mi antiguo buscador, además la idea que hay detrás de esto es muy noble. Espero que este proyecto alimente otras iniciativas para salvar nuestro planeta 🌳🌎❤

Love planting trees

Hello Ecosia, I love the app and I love the idea of planting trees while I do my searches. But I hate the fact that every time I close the app, all the tabs close as well and I can't get back to them when I have the time. Please fix this🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
