Ecosia is a search engine that is environmentally friendly and focuses on privacy. It uses the revenue generated from your searches to plant trees where they are needed most around the world. Founded in 2009 by Christian Kroll, Ecosia aims to combat climate change by planting trees, thus positively impacting the environment. The company is based in Berlin, Germany, and has pledged to plant a tree for every search made by its users. It’s known for its transparency, publishing financial reports to show how much of its income is directed towards its tree-planting projects.

Ecosia is also privacy-conscious, promising not to sell data to advertisers or use third-party trackers. This approach aims to provide a more private alternative to other search engines. Users can search the web, knowing they are contributing to reforestation and environmental sustainability efforts with each query.
