Ecosia is a search engine which will plant trees with every search you perform on it. It uses the Ad-Revenue generated by your search queries to plant trees.
This search engine is powered by Bing Search and uses 80% of its revenue generated from searches to support Tree planting projects across the globe. The project was started in the year 2009 and funded its one millionth tree in November, 2014. With a target of planting one Billion trees by the year 2020, Ecosia is maintained by a team of 20 people.
