Search Engine ‘Ecosia’ Plants Trees Every Time You Look For Something Online

Ecosia's planet saving scheme is super inspirational!

We all want to do our bit to save the planet. Whether it be combating climate change, save the rainforest or looking out for endangered animals, looking out for the world is a necessity.  Unfortunately, it’s often also pretty difficult to keep up the good work all of the time.

This is why we’re stoked about Ecosia, this awesome idea allows you to save the planet every day, without even realising you’re doing it.

The basis of Ecosia is a search engine that plants trees with its ad revenue. The company invests at least 80% of its monthly surplus income in tree planting programs all over the world, meaning that every time you search the web, you help the environment a little bit!

The team at Ecosia have already planted over 5 million trees, and with the numbers of users growing at a faster rate each month, they expect that number to multiply faster and faster.

All you need to do is set Ecosia as your default homepage. The search engine works in an almost identical way to Google and brings up exactly the same results.

The most noticeable difference is a small counter in the top right hand corner for your screen. This counter keeps you updated on how many trees your searches have helped to plant.


There is no doubt about how transparent with Ecosia is with their actions, publishing a monthly report on where their money going and how it’s being used.

Ecosia is now funding reforestation in Burkina Faso, as part of the Great Green Wall project backed by the African Union and the World Bank!
