Ecosia is a search engine that plants trees, since it donates 80% of its income to a tree planting project in Brazil. This means that when you search with Ecosia, you can help the environment at no cost to you.
The researcher who plants trees
Ecosia, like other search engines, derives its revenue from advertisements displayed alongside search results, i.e. through sponsored links, which are pure advertising. The destination of this 80% of the income is intended for the program Plant a billion trees from The Nature Conservancy. This project aims, through the planting of one billion indigenous trees, to restore the Atlantic Forest of Brazil to its original state.
This restoration effort by this tree planting search engine can remove 4 million tons of CO2 from the atmosphere each year. The program is designed to restore natural cycles and provide clean drinking water to millions of people.
Apart from this gesture, Ecosia not only helps to plant trees, but it also completely neutralizes all the CO2 emissions generated by your research. You know, every time we use the Internet, we generate large amounts of CO2, due to the use of servers, searches, access, etc.
So far they have planted over 160 million trees with donations, every 60 seconds or less they plant a new tree. Just in case we had any doubts about the veracity of any of this, they offer receipts and scanned PDFs with copies of WWF receipts, but hey, you can see it all on their website.
You know, together we can change this planet a bit, and this search engine has really improved a lot in terms of search quality, so if you really don’t have a preference for a browser, you can use this one and help the environment.
