Image from store Ecosia - The search engine that plants trees
Description from store ➤ How it works Ecosia is a search engine like Google, but very different: we use our ad revenue to plant trees where nature and people need them most. The Ecosia community has already planted millions of trees in Ethiopia, Brazil, Indonesia, Spain, as well as many other biodiversity hotspots. ➤ Privacy, not just promises We're interested in trees, not your data: we don’t save your searches, we don’t track the websites you visit, we don’t sell your data to advertisers, and your searches are always SSL-encrypted. ➤ CO2 positive CO2 neutral is not enough. Thanks to our solar plant and the Ecosia forests around the world, each of your searches removes around 1 kg of CO2 from the atmosphere. ➤ Radical transparency Trust has to be earned. That’s why we publish our monthly financial reports and tree-planting receipts on our website. We also signed a legal contract that requires us to stay true to our not-for-profit cause, forever. ♡ Get the chrome extension today. The world will be better for it. ♡ ➤ …or learn more: Find out more about our tree-planting projects, team, and mission on our website: https://info.ecosia.org ➤ Follow us on our journey to 1 billion trees: The Ecosia blog: https://blog.ecosia.org/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ecosia Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ecosia Twitter: https://twitter.com/ecosia Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/user/EcosiaORG ➤ Required permissions: "Read and change data on all ecosia.org sites’ and ‘Communicate with cooperating websites," - so that our extension can talk to ecosia.org and vice versa. "Change your search settings to ecosia.org" - this permission allows us to change your default search engine to ecosia.org "Read and modify your most visited websites" - this permission is needed for the “New Tab” page so that we can display your most visited sites ➤ What others are saying: “By making Ecosia your search engine you can actually help the environment one search at a time.” – The Guardian “If that's not incredible fundraising progress by a single company, we're not sure what is." – Treehugger

  • (2020-10-13) erdal gok: çok iyi her aramada 1 ağaç dikiliyor yani her aramada dünyadaki co2 miktarını 1 kg azaltıyorsunuz ve google kadar iyi
  • (2020-10-04) Cristian Acevedo: If you want to know more about the information of the company , just search five minutes and you found the inversions since 2017. Cuando quiero saber más al respecto y la página es transparente y muestra todos sus archivos y el alcance de la empresa. Saludos desde Colombia, llevo 15 árboles plantados en tres días porque tengo clases virtuales y no paro. Gran acción.
  • (2020-10-02) robin i guess: So rewarding and feel-good knowing every search i make is saving planet earth. Thanks ecosia for restoring my faith in humanity once again!
  • (2020-10-02) Julian Barazzutti: As a product is completely convenient, it transforms one of our everyday habits into ecology with seemingly effortless. As a company I think is brilliant how it put most of its revenue to the service of the world and not themselves. Its transparency and care for our privacy are on point too. Great job Ecosia team!!

  • (2020-09-26) julia rb: Uma excelente ideia!!
  • (2020-09-26) Ashwin Kolhatkar: Can't recommend it enough! First of all, I'll talk about the search itself. the browsing experience has improved significantly, and search results are really good. Of course, it's no google, but the only reason the results are not as accurate as google in some cases, is because google uses tracking, whereas Ecosia doesn't. But this is not really a problem at all; Seeing my search count makes me feel good that I have helped plant trees that will empower communities that need it. Even if you don't mind being tracked, Ecosia searches are carbon negative! I'm a total fan of this search engine, and recommend it to everyone I can. I use it on my phone and desktop as the default search engine. And everyone who tried it out on my recommendation loves it too! :)
  • (2020-09-17) Wickeur 59: Pareil que Google mais en mieux car on participe à l'écologie ! J'encourage les gens à l'installer, en plus c'est gratuit
  • (2020-09-15) the funny nerve in your elbow: This is simply amazing I can plant trees only by searching getting used to it took only a day the only drawback I can see is that when you for example type 2*2 in google it shows you 4 but with ecosia you hav e to go on a site
  • (2020-09-15) Iona Shrimpton: Tout simplement EXCELLENT!!! Mais vachement difficile à installer sur microsoft. On dirait qu'ils n'en veulent pas. Pas de conscience. Bravo ECOSIA, on vous ADORE !
  • (2020-09-13) Saswot Lamichhane: The best search engine!!
  • (2020-09-12) Eddie H: VIRUS ALERT. This search engine hi-jacked my web browser and installed itself without my permission and it won't let me change it from being the default or uninstall it.
  • (2020-09-12) Sibella Mitchell: I love it! If you are as in love with the enviroment as I am then you need it to! I've been using it for about a year now!

    Why does this keep appearing in my default search engines without me manually putting it there? I have never heard of this before noticing it in my settings, so I can't imagine an honest reason that this would happen without my permission.

    1. I cannot download the Ecosia chrome extensions, there is no files. When I click download, he downloads a file that says - error. 2. Before, Ecosia was able to show a frontpage with all my most frequent visits, bookmarks, with a white background and a searchbar. The computer version doesn't have it, the phone does.

    Chrome + Ecosia = no bueno! Which is Complainglish for "They aren't playing well together." Is there a fix? Or will this treason go unpunished? Maybe turn the '"development" [OFF] and back [ON] again?
  • (2020-07-12, v:3.3.0) Elle Hartley Smith: Lack of consistancy
    Hello, I add Ecosia to my Chrome web broser. But every time I log out and back in again it has forgotten this addition. I cannot simply stay logged in as I have a work account on the same computer. It does this with my work account as well. Please can you inform me where I'm going wrong! Thank you, Elle
  • (2020-07-07, v:3.3.0) Hans Saw: A Local New Tab Page Photo
    In newer versions of Chrome, anyone can just use a new tab photo that can be uploaded or that is suggested by Google. I do believe this feature should be included here to allow for more customization, while at the same time allowing people to search for the photo and set it as their new tab photo through the extension.
  • (2020-06-20, v:3.3.0) Nirvana Morales: Not loading
    Hi, tonight I have experienced some issues with ecosia. First of all, when i try to search something, it doesn't load. But if i click some page that is saved in my dashboard, it works okay. This also happens with the app. And the second and last problem is that when i try to go to your official website to report the problem or find a solution, it doesn't load. I hope everything is back to normal soon, i really love this searcher. Thank you and have a nice day.

  • (2020-06-08, v:3.2.0) Bob Hanson: How could we partner with you?
    I am on the tree planting committee of an organization called SUSTAINABLE ROSSMOOR. We are looking for a partner where we can contribute to the cause with our time. I noted that you partner with various universities and think we could partner in the same way to get our management and residents to switch to Ecosia. We are a retirement community of about 10,000 homeowners. Please let me know who I should contact to discuss the possibilities. Bob Hanson (925) 934-1071 [email protected]
  • (2020-05-20, v:3.2.0) Christine Sowden: New tab layout
    I've been using Ecosia for a few years now and love it usually but a recent update has made me actually consider deleting the extension. On the new tab page, instead of the little square screenshots of frequently used/bookmarked pages, there were just these circles with the generic logos of the sites they are marking, which given they are often from the same website but of specific pages, it means they all look exactly the same and at a glance, I have no idea where a page I am looking for is, the previous version meant immediately being able to see exactly where each link would take me. I am also concerned by how this is a step back in accessibility for disabled users, screen readers were able to read the label for each link on the previous version, this version requires you to hover the courser over the icon to see the label. I appreciate what an amazing cause Ecosia focuses on and the wonderful work that is done by the team to keep it running to such an incredible degree, but I think this update was a mistake, it makes the homepage redundant, and unhelpful. Ease of access it the entire point of home pages and yet this makes it more difficult to access my favourite pages.
  • (2020-05-11, v:3.2.0) Foster Lindsay: It says chrome://newtab instead of New Tab
    So I have been using Ecosia for a while and I just noticed that today there was a new update available, so I updated. After it was done I noticed an immediate change, and, I like it. But... There is a small problem that bugs me. When you make a new tab it says "chrome://newtab" instead of the clean looking "New Tab". While this isn't groundbreaking or anything I would enjoy see an small update that fixes this. Or whatever else may be the problem. Here is a screenshot of what it was like before and after. (I have two google accounts so I only had updated one at the time). Thanks!
  • (2020-05-10, v:3.2.0) G R: Notificaiton
