Meet the Ecosia — The search engine that plants trees! Developer

Why was Ecosia — The search engine that plants trees! created?

[Welcome to Ecosia]

Ecosia is a social business dedicated to environmental sustainability via the donation of revenue to the world’s most effective rainforest protection programs.

Our best-known service, the search engine mask at, is powered by Bing. It lets an essential and routine task – searching the web – double as an ecological contribution: not only are Ecosia search emissions offset, but every click on a sponsored ad within Ecosia translates into either cents for the environment - or cents for generating more cents for the environment.

Cents may not sound like much, but they certainly add up. From its inception until August 2015, Ecosia was able to donate more than 4.5 million $ to the environment and plant more than 2.5 million trees.
