Switch your search engine to Ecosia,
a not-for-profit that makes a big impact

It’s fast, it’s easy and it’s a lot more private than Google. 
With just a few clicks, you make a difference, today and every single day from now on.

Plus, it’s carbon-negative.

By planting trees and offsetting its energy use with renewables, Ecosia actually removes .5 kg of CO2 from the air each time you use it, which makes Ecosia a carbon-negative search engine. 

45 searches plant a tree

Ecosia is a not-for-profit B corp. They use the incredible profits that are generated by search to plant trees.

If Ecosia were as big as Google,
it could absorb 15% of all global CO2 emissions!


So far Ecosia has planted 140 million trees. 

This means it’s not too late.

The Carbon Almanac has teamed up with Ecosia to make your online activity more powerful.

Support an ethical internet and walk away from big tech.

Finally, you can do something today, right now, that you feel good about.

"Switching to Ecosia couldn’t have been simpler. The extension installed in a minute or so, and since then I’ve hardly noticed I’m not using Duck Duck Go anymore. In the month I’ve been using Ecosia for search, I’ve done 200 searches, which equals 4 trees planted!"

"Given the current state of the world, I love having a search alternative that restores tree life and boosts my morale every time I use it."

"It’s a webpage on its own, an extension and an app, whichever (or all) you choose!

I actually did two major research projects for The Carbon Almanac using Ecosia. It was easy to use, yielded excellent results, and I liked the way the results were displayed vs. other search engine options!"
