EcoVibe Loves: Ecosia

Using the internet is an almost unavoidable daily occurrence, whether it's for online shopping, paying bills or reading your favourite blog (ahem!).  But did you know you can plant trees while you browse?

Ecosia is a Berlin-based not-for-profit company who plant trees where they are needed the most. Amazing, right! How does it work? 

  1. You search the web with Ecosia.
  2. They generate revenue through search ads.
  3. Ecosia uses the revenue to plant trees. 

Since getting started they've planted over 103 million trees at 9,000 planting sites around the world! As we all know, trees are the superheroes of the planet. Apart from being the most effective CO2 absorbers we have, trees help mitigate climate change, restart water cycles, stop deserts from spreading and turn barren grounds back into fertile woods and farmland. They also provide much-needed habitats for birds and precious wildlife. 

Not only are Ecosia helping our ecosystems, but they also support communities too. Adults living around the planting sites can find stable employment and earn an income, allowing them to provide things like healthcare, education and housing for their families. 

 

If you're worried about how legit they are, don't be. Ecosia is a Certified B corporation, meaning all their operations must be transparent and accountable. They also publish their financial reports and tree planting receipts regularly.

They're also very respectful of your data, and will never sell it to any third parties.
