The Search Engine That Plants Trees While You Search The Web!

As you all know, deforestation is a HUGE problem. Because of our consumer needs, roughly 2.47 million trees are cut down each and every day- equating in 900 million trees being cut down annually.

Read my post on Palm Oil and why you should avoid it here!

This is why you should use Ecosia as your search engine. When you search the web with Ecosia, 80% of all profits from the search ad revenue goes to supporting tree planting programs. Just surpassed 10 MILLION trees, they hope to have planted 1 BILLION by 2020!

”By planting a tree, you can fight climate change, restart water cycles, turn deserts back into fertile forests and provide nutrition, employment, education, medical assistance and political as well as economic stability” – Ecosia

The current planting programs are in Burkina Faso, Tanzania, Nicaragua, Indonesia, Peru and Madagascar.
