The Search engine Ecosia has just reached enough funds to plant 5 million new trees!
Ecosia is an eco-friendly alternative to Google – it works just like any other search engine, so you can still find what you are looking for, but Ecosia donates surplus advertising income to a tree planting program. All told, that’s at least 80% of its profits, all going towards making the planet a little greener, and all you have to do is do what you are already doing.
By using the search engine it take roughly 56 web searches to fund one tree.
Ecosia funds the planting of a new tree roughly every 11 to 16 seconds and lets users see how they have contributed just by browsing the web.
