Being environmentally friendly has just gotten easier. Ecosia is a search engine that donates 80% of their generated income toward planting trees in West Africa.
So why search with Ecosia? The answer is simple.
The cost of planting one tree in Burkina Faso is 28 cents(EUR). It only takes one search with Ecosia to generate 5 cents toward their tree-planting program. This means that every 11 seconds, one tree is being planted, right now. Currently, over a million trees have already been planted with the help of everyday users.
The Bigger Picture
Searching with Ecosia is much more than finding the information you are looking for. Ecosia is in partnership with WeForest and Entrepreneurs Without Borders. Together, they work with local communities in Burkina Faso in order to restore forests. By creating more trees, more money is generated. This means that more families in these communities can provide for themselves.
Did you know that with the help of reforestation, trees can restore the water cycle? This means that Ecosia is also eliminating various environmental issues. Searching with Ecosia means that you are a part of this remarkable process. With every search you make, a notification will appear in the right hand corner of your screen.
