Let’s plant some trees with Ecosia

Ecosia is all about planting trees. 15 million users have planted over 120 million trees, for free. Just by searching the web. Ecosia donates all of its charitable contributions to tree planting charities that work to plant trees in South America, Africa and Indonesia, where the cost of planting trees is lower.

Ecosia knows each tree can remove around 50 kg of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere over a 15 year period, this equates to around 5 million metric tones of CO2 removed from the atmosphere. Since 2020 Ecosia has  removed around 0.01% of the CO2 in the atmosphere.

Ecosia donates 80% of their profits to tree-planting charities – nice and simple! It is worth noting that this is far in excess of the 50% donation percentage offered by most other charities. It is important to note that the tree-planting projects that Ecosia supports will help to give paid work to local villagers and farmers in the world’s poorest places, which will help lift them out of extreme poverty.
