Ecosia Search - plant trees while you search the web
Ecosia Search is a search engine that uses at least 80% of its profits from ad revenue to finance tree planting programs around the world. The Ecosia iOS app uses Ecosia Search as its default search engine so you can plant trees while browsing the web. Planting trees is good for the planet, people and the climate. Trees create fertile forests, healthy communities and a strong local economy.

search results are an issue
as much as ive loved using ecosia for the past 6 months, its search results have presented an issue to me. its a great search engine for simple, direct search queries. however, when trying to find something specific, the results that appear are much less intuitive than ones that would appear on google. it can take looking through pages and pages of search results on ecosia to find what you would see on the first page on google. because of this, i find myself referring to google for many of my searches, although i would much prefer the ad revenue my searches provide to go to ecosia instead. however, i understand ecosia is in its infancy compared to bigger search engines so i look forward to a solution so i can continue helping the environment in any way possible:)
The app functionality is incredible. It is significantly less complicated than the google app and doesn’t keep all of the hidden information and cookies from you. It is super transparent, the basic use goes to a good cause and it’s a better process than google or any other search engine
I loved using this app for the concept of planting trees while educating myself already, but now I love it even more. Ecosia used to just be the app I used to search “how to” questions but with this new update I might be able to use Ecosia instead of Safari! I just like the interface in the tools a lot better now 😁
