We care about trees and not your data. We don’t save searches, don’t track which websites you visit, don’t sell your data, and all searches are SSL-encrypted and completely secure.
Ecosia, a search engine similar to Google, is very different. It uses ad revenues to plant trees in areas where nature and people most need them. Ecosia has planted millions of trees in Brazil, Spain, Indonesia, Spain, and many other biodiversity hotspots.
It is not enough to be CO2 neutral. Each of your searches removes approximately 1 kg of CO2.
It is important to earn trust. We publish our financial reports monthly and tree-planting receipts online. A legal contract also required us to remain true to our non-profit cause forever.
