Ecosia (Germany)

Ecosia is a social business run by a small group of dedicated people. Founded in 2009 after a trip around the world.

They work together to create tools that empower everyone to easily do good by planting trees. They believe our trees have the power to make this world a better place for everyone in it. Their international team is based in Berlin, Germany.

Christian Kroll founded Ecosia.org after a trip around the world helped him understand the problems of deforestation. Ecosia won several awards for its clever concept and speedy growth in Europe and beyond. Ecosia was the first German company to become a B Corporation thanks to its social business model. Upon funding its one-millionth tree, Ecosia announced its mission to plant 1 billlion trees by 2020.

When you search the web with Ecosia, 80% of the profits from the search ad revenue goes to support tree planting programs. Get the free browser extension and help plant trees everytime you search. Each of the tree planting projects that we finance has a unique approach and is helping to reforest the world in a very special way. Although Ecosia scanned the whole reforestation landscape for the best tree planting programs, they maybe haven’t yet come across this stellar project you may know about. We appreciate your help and look forward to a hint at treeplanting@ecosia.org.
