Ecosia, the search engine that turns searches into planted trees, announced it will plant its 100 millionth tree.
Christian Kroll, CEO of Ecosia, states: “We are not interested in your data; we are interested in trees.” The non-profit, powered by Bing, take 80% of its advertising revenue to fund projects in areas of, particularly vulnerable deforestation.
Every search contributes to the 100 million trees that help remove over 1771 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere, Ecosia says.
The 100 millionth tree will be anywhere from Madagascar, Burkina Faso, and Brazil. In terms of future goals, Ecosia plans to continue expanding its market on solar energy and to further optimize informing search engine users on their environmental impact.
