Ecosia is a web search engine, like Google or Yahoo which donates 80% of its income to non-profit conservationist organizations, with a focus on planting trees. Ecosia claims that it has planted more than 40 million trees till now.
Ecosia has donated to various tree-planting programs. Launched in December 2009, until December 2010, Ecosia’s donations went to a program by WWF Germany that protected the Juruena National Park in the Amazon basin.
After that, it donated to Plant a half million Trees program run by the Nature Conservancy for 4 years. The program was aimed to restore the Brazilian Atlantic Forest by planting 1 million native trees by 2015.
