Publisher Description:

* How it works

Ecosia is a search engine like Google, but very different: we use our ad revenue to plant trees where nature and people need them most. The Ecosia community has already planted millions of trees in Ethiopia, Brazil, Indonesia, Spain, as well as many other biodiversity hotspots.

* Privacy, not just promises

We're interested in trees, not your data: we dont save your searches, we dont track the websites you visit, we dont sell your data to advertisers, and your searches are always SSL-encrypted.

* CO2 positive

CO2 neutral is not enough. Thanks to our solar plant 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. Thats 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.

* What others are saying:

By making Ecosia your search engine you can actually help the environment one search at a time.

If that's not incredible fundraising progress by a single company, we're not sure what is."
