Planet over Profit
Our goal is to build a greener and better world for everyone, not to maximize returns for shareholders. That’s why we’ve made a legally binding commitment to ensure that no profits can ever be taken out of the company. As part of our vision to end deforestation, we want to plant one billion new trees by 2020.

Why Trees?
More than 25% of the world’s population rely on forest resources for their livelihoods. By planting trees you can fight climate change, restore landscapes, protect wildlife and help people by providing nutrition, employment and education. In the long term this leads to healthier, happier and more economically stable communities. 

CO2 Positive
We are more than just CO2 neutral. Ecosia owns and operates its own solar plant to power your searches with 100% renewable energy. In fact, thanks to the amazing trees we plant, each search actually removes around 1 kg of CO2 from the atmosphere.

Forests need protecting and so does your privacy. We do both:
• We don’t save your searches
• We don’t track the websites you visits
• We don’t sell your data to advertisers
• Your searches are always SSL-encrypted

We know that trust has to be earned. That’s why we publish all our monthly financial reports and tree-planting receipts on our website.

Reviews From google play store

The ultimate eco-conscious browsing experience! I love this browser and what it stands for. Yes, it is not as good as Google in quick searches of things like currency and unit conversions, gps related searches etc. However I am certain that the company will improve these functions with time. so yeah I might have to make one or two extra clicks in some rare situations but I am totally okay with that. Watch our changing climate's YouTube on ecosia for it's credibility. Amazing stuff!

the best browser ever! if you're concious about the environment or are just trying to do your small part to help planet earth. this is for you! in our day and age everyone asks the internet questions. so why not plant some tree's while you're going about asking, and researching! recommend to anyone and everyone. :)

Love it. Would love some developments like searching for certain things (weather, exchange rate, movie times) to show up automatically without me having to choose a website to go to. Now the weather does, and I hope they keep improving!

I love it a lot, it's such a beautiful and smooth browser. The only problem I have is that I can't move bookmarks from a another browser, thus making it difficult to use, as I rely a lot on webpages I've saved. It would be awesome if the app could grab bookmarks from other browser apps installed! Thanks in advance, I wish the best for your app. 😀♥️

no sorry, it crashes, it's slow, it doesn't do the job properly. It's not fast. I had faith and appreciation in it as it was for a good cause.. but you either do it right, or if you can't do it, just don't.. waste of time, what a shame.. plus I gave u feedback manu days ago, and no reply.. it seems u don't care as much as it looked like.. it's a no for me..

I love that Ecosia plants a Tree 🌲 for every 40 searches. And I love that Ecosia runs on renewable Energy. But the Browser is really slow on my device. Fix that snd you'll get 5 stars! 🌟

the problem i have is that even when my data was turned off, the tree count in the browser was still increasing.please dont use an algorithm where the number shown is computer generated.even if it consumes some data, let it show genuine number of planted trees instead of adding numbers itself

Love it! Yes it is a touch slower than chrome, but not really by much! No problems watching youtube or browsing. I'm happy to take half a second longer to look up something on an amazing peice of portable machinery that can access all the information in the world! Very grateful and appreciative and help give back to the planet which has provided the resources that has made our mobiles! 🌏♥️

The concept of the app is amazing, but the app itself isn't that great. Very very slow, nothing compared to the speed of chrome browser or most other popular search engines. That is the only problem.

Love the idea! but the browser seems much slower than Chrome and also kept crashing a lot. I might use it for light duty webpages for now.

i can search without getting a ton of ads following me like Google does. i like my privacy. I love that Ecosia, plants a 🌲 for every search I do. That makes me very happy and I enjoy using this search app. I'd like to see improvements in searching to be slightly similar to Google, such as: when I search a place, give me a map and information on the business or place. Like a drop down list.

The search engins is great. However, quick search results and info is really needed. It saves a lot if time by not having to get into the sites and search whole pages for a small answer. Do it the Google way..

While this is for a good cause, the browser can't help but feel outdated. At least update it and fix a few stability issues?

Great idea, I'd love to use it more on my phone but it's painfully slow compared to chrome or opera... Please fix the speed issue and I'll use it as my main browser!

by far it's actually working really good! I really like it. If I can contribute with something, you could add a widget counting the amount of trees planted by the user 😊

Works just as well as Google but actually does something useful for the environment at the same time.

Application parfaite en soi, mais de gros gros soucis de stabilité (en tout cas sur mon téléphone), beaucoup de bugs, de freezes notamment, je la réinstallerai dans un moment afin de voir si elle marche mieux :)

It doesn't play well with my password manager app. Cool concept, but to frustrating for me to continue. Also no night mode. I'll return when it's fixed.

edit: now based on v69 which came out 6 months ago. So far behind! Based on Chrome v65, which came out 4 months ago.

Good cause but the slowest web browser that I think is available. Its even slower than using a vpn
