How Trees Are Planted

Ecosia's Mission

There are all kinds of problems in our modern world that need fixing. At Ecosia, we want to do our share to find and support innovative solutions to as many of these problems as we can. As part of our vision to end deforestation, we want to plant one billion new trees by the year 2020.
